Aldi - A Story of Success

With roots dating back to 1913, Aldi (short for Albrecht Discount) entered the Irish market in 1999. Aldi is one of the fastest growing supermarkets in Ireland* and one of the world’s most successful retailers. We have a vast network of over 140 stores across the country and ambitious plans to open many more. There are currently more than 6,200 stores across our international portfolio including stores in Ireland, the UK, Europe, Australia and the USA.

Aldi Careers - To be the best, you need to learn from the best.

On the 12-month Graduate Programme, you’ll gain a well-rounded view of how we do things at Aldi to become part of our growing talented Area Manager team.

First up is your induction. Over two weeks, you’ll build up a clear picture of the business and what makes us so different. That's followed by a period of intensive training, taking in everything from stacking shelves to making decisions on how the store is run.

Then the challenges really kick in as you're given the keys to your own store, and get to grips with managing your team and a €multi-million business.

By the end of your first year, you should be ready to take on a full Area Manager role, with all the responsibilities that entails, from motivating employees to encouraging excellent performance. We give you the tool kit to deliver great results.

The combination of on-the-job training and soft skills training will equip you with the necessary skills to achieve your potential as an Area Manager. Your ultimate aim? To develop your store teams to achieve the highest possible sales while ensuring an efficient and cooperative working environment, great customer service, minimal costs and maximum productivity.


Secure a place on our Graduate Area Manager Programme and you'll enjoy a remuneration package that is unsurpassed, including:

  • €61,000 starting salary rising to €102,850 
  • Permanent contract
  • Training and support with a dedicated mentor from day one
  • A fully expensed BMW 3 series from the day you join
  • Work laptop and iPhone
  • A pension scheme, private healthcare and five weeks holidays (plus bank holidays)
  • Prospects of international secondment

Applications for our 2021 Aldi Graduate Area Manager Programme are now open. Applications will close 30 November 2020.

So you’re ready to apply. Spaces go very quickly and it’s really competitive. However, if you’re the kind of person we’re after, that won’t put you off. In fact, you’ll be thinking ‘bring it on’
