Aldi is undertaking its biggest-ever apprenticeship intake, with plans to recruit for over 500 roles across the UK this year.

The UK’s fourth-largest supermarket is offering opportunities in stores, logistics and buying, as well as HGV driving.

An Aldi store apprentice can earn £220.20 per week in the first year of training, rising to £321.90 per week after two years, with paid breaks. Those in Aldi’s logistics or driver roles can earn £240 or £378 per week respectively.

“We have found so many hard-working and ambitious people through our apprenticeship scheme over the years – and I don’t doubt it will be the same again this year,” said Aldi UK learning & development director Lisa Murphy.

“By taking part in the scheme and working at one of the country’s fastest-growing retailers, apprentices can learn all there is to know about the supermarket sector. Not only this, but the scheme provides them with new skills and nationally recognised qualifications along the way, with help and support from some of the industry’s most talented people.

“We’re always on the lookout for more incredible colleagues to join the Aldi team – and that includes across all ages, roles and backgrounds.”
