Ger­man dis­count su­per­mar­ket chain Aldi is cre­at­ing 4,000 new jobs in the UK to match ris­ing sales, with new jobs in­clud­ing store as­sis­tants and deputy store man­agers. The gro­cer, which has more than 700 UK stores, said that it saw 900,000 new cus­tomers walk through its doors last year. The group said it re­mains on course to open 1,000 stores by 2022.

“The suc­cess of Aldi in the UK is due to the hard work and com­mit­ment of our em­ploy­ees, and they are cru­cial to our fu­ture ex­pan­sion plans,” said Chief Ex­ec­u­tive, Aldi – UK and Ire­land, Matthew Barnes. To­gether with its Ger­man peer Lidl, Aldi has en­joyed im­pres­sive suc­cess in the UK in re­cent years, ap­peal­ing par­tic­u­larly to cash-con­scious spenders and those who have re­cently started to feel the ef­fects of a sig­nif­i­cant pick-up in in­fla­tion.
