With Aldi’s UK estate currently standing at 998 stores, according to its website, the opening per week is set to take it to 1,016.

“As we continue to grow and attract new shoppers, we need even more amazing colleagues at our distribution sites to make everything possible,” said Aldi UK recruitment director Kelly Stokes.

“As well as healthcare and lifestyle perks, being a part of the Aldi team means a great working environment. With it being an exciting time for the business there are also real opportunities to progress.”
