Aldi to create 35,000 jobs with new stores

10 November 2014

aldi_logo Aldi - you're going to be seeing a lot of it rather soon as the supermarket chain has announced that they're going to open loads of new shops, creating 35,000 jobs while they're at it.

They're throwing £600m of investment at it, doubling the number of outlets they have. There's going to be a lot of Dairyfine chocolates in lunch boxes soon enough.

Aldi said: "This includes plans to create at least one apprenticeship position per store, per year, which would see the employment of between 600 - 1,000 apprentices each year as Aldi strives towards 1,000 stores."

"Apprentice training and development will be supported by a new Apprenticeship Academy located at Aldi's offices and distribution centre in Bolton, which is due to open in March 2015."

As well as apprenticeships, there'll be management roles as well as in-store and regional distribution centre roles.

Matthew Barnes, group managing director of Aldi UK, added: "Our expansion plans mean that we can accommodate growing shopper numbers, while ensuring that there is an Aldi store only a short drive away from people, no matter where they live in the country. We are opening our doors across the UK, making it even easier for people to shop and save with us."

Tesco, Morrisons and Sainsbury's weren't able to pass judgement on this news because they were too busy soiling themselves and wondering whether or not to apply for a job with the discount chain before their companies implode.
