Corporate Buying Industrial Placement

At Aldi, our Industrial Placements are tough. But they’re tough for a reason. It’s an opportunity for you to contribute to a thriving, global business – one that’s ranked third in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers list for 2018. We’ll challenge you, but we’ll always support you along the way. After all, it’s a two-way thing. And it’s this approach to our Industrial Placements that have made them such a stand-out success.

On our Corporate Buying Programme, you’ll learn about so much more than just ‘Buying’. In your training you’ll experience all the specialist areas of the product lifecycle – everything from Corporate Responsibility and Quality Assurance, right through to PR and Customer Services. This way, you can pick the area that really interests you.

Once you’ve decided on your specialism, you’ll get to bring your ideas to the table. Our talented teams come up with innovative new processes, all in an effort to make a positive impact on the environment. So it’s a unique chance to not only learn new business skills, but to also benefit future generations. If this wasn’t already enough of a challenge, you’ll juggle it within a complex and fast-paced environment – becoming an expert problem-solver along the way.

From the moment you start at Aldi, we’ll look after you properly. You’ll get £25,000* for the 12 months you spend with us, together with 4 weeks’ holiday allowance (plus bank holidays). If the role fits, we’d love you to apply for a permanent role after you graduate.

*Based on a 50 hour contract.

To earn your placement, you’ll be working towards a 2:1 in any discipline on a sandwich degree course. You’ll also have a minimum of 96 UCAS points (240 if using the old tariff) from your top 3 A-levels (excluding general studies). Please note we also accept 63 Scottish Highers (150 points if using the old tariff) as an equivalent to UCAS points. It’s important you have the right to work in the UK. And, while you don’t require access to a car, you’ll still need a driving licence.
