"Throughout my year I experienced tough conversations, moments of self-doubt & uncertainty in decision making; however, as I look back, it has been the greatest opportunity to develop and learn I could've asked for. The immediate and sustained responsibility - and the various new challenges that come with it - forced me to deliver my best performance, and when I still fell short, it became a huge opportunity to learn how to get it right next time. Aldi is supportive of those who make mistakes while attempting to achieve their best result, and henceforth, is a fantastic place to learn what you are capable of and how to push beyond that."
