We’re bursting with pride at Aldi. With over 775 stores in the UK and over 30,000 colleagues, it is no wonder we were crowned Grocer of the Year 2018 at the prestigious Grocer Gold Awards, which recognised us as having one of the best working environments in the sector. And with our wonderful apprenticeship programmes, there’s more than one way to start a successful career here. You just have to want it.

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.

You might be surprised to learn that some of the most successful people in retail today started off as apprentices. It’s all about spotting potential and providing the right people with the right environment to develop a practical, usable skillset. With hard work, ambition and the ability to apply yourself to any challenge, you could make it all the way to store management.
