National Buying Placement (Quality Assurance)

Are you looking for an opportunity to join a Market Leading Retailer’s Quality Assurance department? This is your chance to get a real taste of retail, as you’re exposed to every facet of our business over the 12 months of your placement.

A fantastic opportunity for an ambitious individual to develop, grow and be inspired by a company that’s so different to all the others.

Throughout the 12 month placement you will gain invaluable exposure and experience by working within a dynamic and fast paced environment.

The successful candidate will ideally be working towards a food-related degree, however this is not compulsory.

You will work cross functionally with our Corporate Buying team and our external providers to ensure all products are safe, legal and meet the required quality standards. You will be involved in developing and implementing the overall QA Strategy, as well as collaborating with National and International colleagues.

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.

To be eligible to apply, you’ll need to 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.

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.
