Aldi is one of the most reputable retailers in the global business market today. With a simple goal of providing great value and quality, using leaner and smarter business processes, we’re a supermarket that’s getting it right. We’re winning all kinds of awards and new stores are springing up all over the country as we rapidly increase our market share.
The things that make us a great retailer, also make us a great employer. There’s a real sense of clarity: everyone knows what’s expected of them and they can see how their efforts fit into the bigger picture. We’re a very responsible company, always treating our people with decency and respect. Progression is based on merit and it’s easy to see how you can achieve personal success. And, perhaps more importantly, we’re really open. Open to fresh ideas and new perspectives that will help us to become even better. It’s a fantastic place for young people who are willing to work hard and learn from the very best.
At Aldi, we take careers very seriously and want to give everyone the best possible start. That’s why we offer a number of apprenticeships across our business, with three core programmes:
Store Apprentices have two routes in, ensuring equal opportunities for all:
- Career Starters don’t need previous qualifications as they develop Literacy and Numeracy skills while completing a Level 2 Retailer Qualification.
- The Management Development Programme requires a minimum grade 4 in GCSE Maths and English and works towards a Level 3 Retail Team Leader Qualification.
Our Logistics Apprenticeship is a one-year intense training programme where colleagues achieve a Level 2 Supply Chain Operative qualification and are exposed to the whole supply chain.
Driver Apprentices turn their full clean UK driving licence into a Category C+E Licence and Level 2 LGV standard qualification in just one year.
Starting as an Apprentice, now Store Manager, Freddie Wakelin offers the following advice:
“If you want to be an Aldi Apprentice, you must be ambitious, eager to learn and happy to roll up your sleeves. You’ll have a permanent job and realistic opportunity to progress at the end of your training, so make sure you take advantage of all of the amazing opportunities offered to you.”
