From today, Australia’s Supermarket of the Year has opened applications for Retail Assistants and Store Management Trainees, with all applications available via ALDICareers.com.au.
Recruitment closes on 27 September 2015, before reopening for a second round in February 2016. ALDI has already received more than 12,000 expressions of interest for these roles. The new hiring announcement comes following a successful recruitment period for ALDI’s first South Australian Store Managers, who started their roles with the business earlier this month.
“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 Retail Assistants and Store Management Trainees will also receive in-store training in various locations across South Australia.
“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.”
