New distribution centre to create 400 Aldi jobs

Discount grocer Aldi will create around 400 jobs at its new regional base in Goldthorpe, South Yorkshire.

The new site, which is expected to open in 2015, will incorporate a distribution centre and regional offices.

Liam Rafferty, financial and administration director at Aldi, said the regional distribution centre at Goldthorpe would provide a hub for Aldi‘s growing portfolio of stores across South and West Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire.

The German firm said it would be recruiting staff this month.

Aldi recently reported £157.9m of UK pre-tax profits for 2012, a rise of 124 per cent as it opened its 500th store in the UK in October.

Verdict estimated Aldi will generate sales of £4.65bn in the year to December 31 against M&S‘s £4.85bn in the year to March.
