Aldi to create 3,000 UK jobsStrong growth has prompted budget supermarket chain Aldi to announce a major new expansion drive, with plans to create an additional 3,000 jobs in the UK over the coming year.
The company intends to hire across all parts of its business as it expands the number of UK outlets it owns. Up to 100 places will be created on its graduate programme.
Positions will range from stock assistants to store managers, and there will be roles available in both new and existing Aldi shops.
"We're looking for outstanding candidates who can offer something beyond academic achievements," said Richard Holloway, the supermarket's head of graduate recruitment.
He added: "We are dedicated to offering the best career path to our employees and our trading plans demonstrate this."
The announcement comes after Aldi was named Supermarket of the Year 2012 at the Which? Awards, following on from a previous victory in the same category in 2009.
