Aldi to create 5,500 new jobs in 2024

Aldi has said it will create 5,500 new roles across the UK this year.

The budget supermarket currently has over 1,000 stores and more than 45,000 employees.

The new roles available include store assistants, managers, and cleaners.

The retailer is also recruiting across its 11 regional distribution centres and within head office.

Earlier this month, Aldi announced it will invest £550 million in expanding and improving its store and distribution network.

At the time, it said that the new store openings will contribute to 1,500 new jobs.

The company has also committed to opening 500 new stores across Britain, as well as investing £1.4 billion pounds into the business.

“Our colleagues work incredibly hard and are without a doubt a huge part of our success at Aldi," said Giles Hurley, chief executive, Aldi UK. "We continue to welcome more and more customers to Aldi stores every week, not just because of our unbeatable prices and British sourcing, but also our amazing colleagues.

“We are looking forward to welcoming even more colleagues up and down the country to Team Aldi during 2024 as we progress towards our goal of making affordable, quality food accessible to everyone.”
