Other store roles available will include managerial positions, Caretakers and Cleaners, as well as store apprentices.

Aldi is also currently recruiting for 900 jobs across its 13 Regional Distribution Centres around the UK, and a further 175 vacancies at its head office in Atherstone, Warwickshire.

In addition, Aldi is also on the lookout for over 80 graduates to join its next graduate scheme intake, starting from September onwards.

  1. Not a fan of Aldi but they seem to be doing well like Lidl and Poundland and B and M and Home Bargains who have spread all over the place really over the last decade.

    It’s work for people who want it with them and need it.
