ALDI Australia is recruiting for almost 400 new positions across South Australia, as it prepares for state-wide expansion in 2016.
From today, Australia’s Supermarket of the Year* has opened applications for Store Managers and Assistant Store Managers. Trainee Store Manager and Store Assistant positions will open from September 1, with all applications available via ALDICareers.com.au.
“As one of the country’s fastest growing retailers, ALDI is looking for dynamic, enthusiastic and ambitious people to help bring the ALDI difference to South Australia,” said Viktor Jakupec, ALDI Managing Director – South Australia. “ALDI employees are highly motivated and dedicated to delivering the best shopping experience to our customers. In return, they are provided with rewarding careers, development opportunities and industry-leading employment benefits.”
As part of its commitment to staff, ALDI offers paid maternity leave (18 weeks at half pay), five weeks annual leave for full-time employees and salaries that are well above industry standards.
New employees will undergo extensive training to learn the ALDI way of doing business. South Australian Store Managers will also receive in-store training at one of ALDI’s existing stores on the eastern seaboard.
“Our commitment to the personal development of ALDI employees starts from day one,” Mr Jakupec said. “ALDI’s training program sets our employees up for career success. We’ve enjoyed seeing our staff grow alongside our business and independent employee surveys have consistently shown high levels of job satisfaction.”
As ALDI’s South Australian expansion continues to progress, confirmed locations of interest include Hawthorn, Mount Barker, Hallett Cove, Seaford Heights, Gawler, Woodcroft, Victor Harbor, Parafield Gardens, Blakeview, St Agnes, Kilburn, Gilles Plains, Golden Grove, Berri, Aldinga, Noarlunga, Modbury, Mount Gambier and the Barossa.
ALDI’s first Store Manager and Assistant Store Manager positions will be filled from July 2015, with hiring for all levels to continue throughout 2016. Interested applicants should visit ALDICareers.com.au for more details.
