National IT Placement (Hardware, Systems and Infrastructure)

We are looking for someone to work alongside our Infrastructure Team who has hands on experience of switches, routers and firewalls with the ability and willingness to improve their knowledge on a steep learning curve.

Ideally you will have experience working with programmes such as Cisco, Juniper, Fortinet, Motorola/Zebra and HP hardware. There will be the opportunity for you to lead network deployment within new Regional Distribution Centres and coordinate and lead national IT projects.

Ideally you will be working towards a 2:1 in an IT based degree and have knowledge configuring and maintenance of VPNs, knowledge of Wide Area Network (WAN) technologies such as MPLS and experience patching and installation of structured cabling. You will be provided with the necessary level of supervision throughout the placement but should be able to confidently communicate with different areas of the business so good people skills would be required.

Trust us, there is always plenty going on at Aldi - our business is constantly growing and developing. Yes, the placement can be daunting. However, it can also be a fantastic opportunity to learn and be inspired by a company that is so different to all the others.

From the moment you start at Aldi, we’ll look after you properly. You’ll get £25,375* 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.

The National IT department

The National IT department is at the very heart of Aldi. We're made up of small high-performing teams, and you can expect plenty of exposure plus hands-on experience of an IT department within a global company. Typically, you could join us as part of a technical team supporting the live business, part of a large scale project team or even have responsibility for a smaller scale project by yourself.

Many of the opportunities available will depend on what's going on with the business at the time. We have opportunities in various exciting areas of IT, including: Hardware and Systems, Business Intelligence and Reporting, E-commerce, Store Payments and Ahead Project Coordinators.

About Aldi

At Aldi, we’re committed to giving talented students the responsibility and opportunities to have the best start to their career. So, whichever Placement you choose you’ll be in the thick of the action from the start.

You’ll join the 5th largest retailer in the UK and one of Rate My Placement’s Top 100 Undergraduate Employers and over the year, you’ll experience early responsibility as well as rare exposure to the internal workings of Aldi. With determination and extraordinary focus you’ll learn a lot about yourself, as you tackle brand new situations and prove your worth in our fast-paced retail environment.

Yes, it’s demanding – but we provide incredible support. Plus, you’ll have the chance to apply for a permanent role after you graduate.
