About us

We’re bursting with pride at Aldi. We work incredibly hard to do a great job for our people and our customers, so it’s no wonder we’ve won so many awards for being such a great place to work and shop. 

The things that make us a great retailer, also make us a great employer. With over 1,000 stores in the UK and over 44,000 colleagues, our growth means that we can provide career opportunities for everyone, whatever their background and wherever they work in our business.

Just as we promise to provide the best value to our customers, we are also committed to being the highest-paying supermarket in the sector. We believe our colleagues are the best in the sector and they play a HUGE part in making Aldi what it is today.

Stores Programme

Pop into an Aldi store, and you won’t see any dilly-dallying.

Our people know what needs to be done, and they just get on and do it. It’s simple really, but it does take lots of drive. With two career pathways available, we’ve got something for everyone. And if you combine hard work, ambition and the ability to apply yourself to any challenge, you could make it all the way to Store Management.

Warehouse Programme

Our Warehouse Career Starter programme gives a rare insight into retail logistics. You’ll learn all about how our products get from our suppliers to our customers’ shopping baskets - it’s an incredibly fascinating process. With a structured career path too, you’ll be well on the way to becoming a success within our business.

Drivers Programme

To get on our Driver Apprenticeship, you’ve got to be pretty good behind the wheel (as you do need a full and clean UK driving licence). But we’re also just as interested in how driven you are. If all goes well, you’ll have a Category C + E licence by the end of the programme.

National Buying Programme

Get an incredible introduction to Buying with a leading international retailer - that’s us. With a wave of impressive sales figures behind us, we're opening new stores at lightning speed and to keep on top of that wave, our Buying teams have to do something pretty special to keep our customers coming back for more. If you’re considering a career in Buying, this would be the perfect first step.
