We're a leading global retailer and one of the world's largest privately owned companies. We have an individual approach to business which demands exceptional standards of management, if you meet these standards your career could grow as quickly as this company has.
A tale of unrivalled success. That's the Aldi story, with over 7,000 stores worldwide and continuing expansion throughout Europe, North America and Australia.
And the prospects for the future are hugely exciting as we continue to make a major investment in new stores, logistics and, most importantly, in people.
But this success relies on the quality of our people, starting with the recruitment of this country's brightest graduate talent.

This is a graduate training programme with a difference. It throws you straight in at the deep end of retailing and it covers every aspect of management; from store operations to financial administration, from logistics to property management.
Of course, you won't be left to 'sink-or-swim', there is a full support system in place - a team that will do everything to make you a success and achieve your full potential. You'll start in store and be managing one within weeks.
You'll apply your leadership skills, commercial awareness, technical and management ability directly. And, as and when you're ready, we'll give you a multi- million pound area of 4 to 6 stores to run as if you owned it.

"Aldi is a company that thrives from people giving 100% in every single task they do. Candidates have to be sure that they have the right attitude to work for the company. Having the skill set is one thing, but having the right attitude is another. At Aldi you need to have a ‘can do’ attitude and have self-motivation to carry out the job."
Qualifications are important, but determination, competitiveness and team skills are vital. Within a few months you could be managing four to six Aldi stores, so you’ll also need to be able to take on real responsibility.
If you’re motivated and ambitious, then you never know; one day you might wake up realising you’ve landed a career that is second to none.
