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:

  • €67,925 starting salary rising to €111,300
  • Permanent contract
  • Training and support with a dedicated mentor from day one
  • A fully expensed company car from the day you join
  • Work laptop and iPhone
  • A pension scheme (after two years), private healthcare and five weeks holidays (plus bank holidays)
  • Prospects of international secondment

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’
