Here at Aldi, we’re at the top of our game. And so are our Industrial Placements. In fact, we’ve been ranked third in The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers list for 2018. Joining as a Corporate Logistics Industrial Placement you will be working in the team responsible for getting the products from the Buying source to our Distribution Centres across the UK and Ireland on time, every time.
We move millions of pallets of products each year via air, sea, road and rail from all four corners of the planet, from biscuits in Montreal to mangoes from Senegal. Aside from ensuring everything received by our Regions is in pristine condition, we work tirelessly with the Buyers to ensure market leading supply chain costs are achieved, therefore a keen interest in how international supply chains operate is a must.
Within the placement you can expect to spend time with all the teams within Corporate Logistics who look after the various elements of the Aldi supply chain, prior to being handed a major project to undertake, which could focus on any element of our Logistics network and how service can be improved or costs can be reduced. You will have real responsibility that will culminate in a tangible bottom line value being added to a major global business within your time on the placement. This is something that will certainly set you apart when returning to your final year of study!
What you really need for this programme is inherent curiosity. But ideally you’ll also 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. Placements in Atherstone don’t require access to a car, but you’ll still need a driving licence.
