Careers with Lidl for Property graduates
Since opening in Ireland in 1999, Lidl has grown to become a major player in the Irish grocery market, and was recently named the Most Reputable Food Retailer in Ireland in 2020. Our people are at the core of our success, and we’re looking for the best and brightest graduates to join our ambitious team. At Lidl, we do not set a specific cut off when it comes to how many graduates we recruit each year – we welcome candidates from any discipline who we feel will be the right fit for our fast-paced, dynamic business.
We are pleased to share that despite enhancing our virtual recruitment process, there have been no changes made to the programme as a result of Covid-19. When it comes to your application, soft skills such as effective communication, entrepreneurial actions, organisational and problem-solving skills are key to successful candidates. Put simply, we’re looking for graduates with the drive to challenge themselves, develop and progress within the company.
Our “Essential Graduate Programme” gives you responsibility for real projects from day one with experience working with teams across the business. In return, you’ll receive competitive benefits and the best development opportunities available, supported by professionals at every level of the business, including a one-to-one mentorship with a member of our Board of Directors. Lidl’s multi-award-winning graduate programme has recently been accredited by City & Guilds, a mark of the highest quality for a training and development programme.
Lidl is far more than a shop, and our property portfolio is far more than our stores.
The Portfolio & Facilities Department manages all aspects of the company’s property portfolio. We acquire suitable development sites, achieve planning permission for stores and construct these according to our standard corporate specification. The network of open stores together with warehouses, offices and ancillary property requires ongoing active portfolio management to ensure that we are maximising the value of our assets.
Facilities Management is responsible for how the store is presented daily to the customer. Customers and managers want an inviting and attractive store with no maintenance issues. Facilities Management is also responsible for installing and maintaining all of the stores technical equipment and shelving that keep our products front and centre.
Our mission is to increase the company’s market share through strategic expansion activity that will deliver return on investments, manage our existing property portfolio in order to maximise turnover, and to pro-actively manage all of our facilities.
In short, we give our Sales colleagues the equipment and in-store experience that enables them to maximise customer satisfaction.
