Aldi has been named the UK’s fastest growing supermarket and, although it is currently the fifth-largest chain of supermarkets in Britain (after the ‘Big 4’ of Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Asda and Morrisons), the German-founded chain has high hopes for vast expansion across the country.
Things are on the up for Aldi – in December 2018, it sold a massive £1 billion worth of goods within its UK stores. That is a 10% increase from the same period in 2017. With its incredibly popular premium range, Aldi is fast becoming a dangerous competitor for the larger chains, committing to fantastic quality as well as great value for money.
With the competition hotting up, the more traditional UK chains are being forced to slash as many prices as possible, just to keep up with the bolstered popularity of chains like Aldi and Lidl.
In light of this increase in popularity, Aldi has plans to create further stores within the country. The firm has recently opened its 800th store, and its long term goals include owning 1,200 UK stores by December 2025. Last year alone, it opened 65 UK stores in total.
Aldi’s 2019 plans, however, involve unveiling a further 70 stores for this year – and this involves some fantastic employment opportunities throughout the country.
Management positions are being developed, in which candidates can look forward to a wage of almost £60,000 per year. On top of this, Aldi is offering up to 5 whole weeks of annual leave.
There will be a graduate scheme available, to encourage growth and career development in those fresh from university. By joining Aldi and bringing their newfound skills and determination to the workforce, graduates will be rewarded with a fantastic salary, and even some new wheels. A year-long graduate training scheme is offered, along with an unbelievable Audi A4. After 4 years, the lucky graduate will be expected to be earning a salary of up to £75,360.
In addition to this position, there will also be entry-level roles and apprenticeships available. Aldi has a reputation for decent wages, and those joining the company in these positions can expect to start on £8.70 per hour UK-wide, or £10.20 per hour in London.
