National Buying Placement (Branding)

Are you looking for an opportunity to join a Market Leading Retailer’s Brand 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.

If you have a flair for creativity and branding along with project management skills then we have the perfect role for you.

Working collaboratively with our Buying and Quality teams on our product launch process you will be responsible for effectively managing packaging projects of our own label brands with support from our external stakeholders.

The role will involve liaising with and building strong relationships with internal and external stakeholders of all levels, taking packaging design briefs, reviewing designs to ensure they are on brand, managing critical paths and analysing external stakeholders reporting and key performance indicators.

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.

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.

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.
