About Aldi

If retail’s your thing and you’re intrigued by the Aldi story, this is your chance to gain the perfect insight. Our year-long placements offer intensive training, so you can see how we tick from every angle. More than that, you’ll learn a lot about yourself, as you tackle brand-new situations and prove your worth in our extraordinary retail environment.

Whether you join us on a General Management, Corporate Logistics, Corporate Buying, eCommerce or IT Placement, you’ll be in the thick of all the action. Don’t forget, we’ve achieved our success through absolute determination and extraordinary focus so we’re not about to let you sit back and ‘take it all in’.

Over the 52 weeks, you’ll experience early responsibility and rare exposure to the internal workings of our business. We’re a big fan of rotating our students across different teams, it really demonstrates how operations fit together to ensure a smooth-running business.

We choose students who have obviously done their homework on Aldi, and who impress us with their professionalism, respect and hunger to learn. Yes it’ll be demanding, but the rewards are immense. Generous salary aside, you’ll go back to university with a clear sense of your own strengths and what your future could look like. Plus our high-performing students will be encouraged to apply for a permanent role after graduation.
