ALDI launches High­lands re­cruit­ment drive

The Oban Times - - Business -

ALDI is look­ing to re­cruit 19 em­ploy­ees across the High­lands within 2017, as it con­tin­ues to at­tract more new cus­tomers than other UK su­per­mar­kets.

The jobs in the High­lands in­clude deputy store man­agers, store as­sis­tants and ap­pren­tices and will be spread across the re­tailer’s stores in In­ver­ness, Fort Wil­liam and Aviemore.

As the UK’s high­est pay­ing su­per mar­ket, all store em­ploy­ees will earn a min­i­mum of £ 8.53 an hour. The re­cruit­ment drive fol­lows a surge in sales, with more than 418,000 new cus­tomers head­ing to ALDI in Scot­land in the past year. As part of ALDI’s com­mit­ment to Scot­land, the re­tailer re­cently out­lined plans to boost its in­vest­ment in prod­ucts.

ALDI will in­crease its range of Scot­tish prod­ucts from 350 to more than 400 in the next two years, un­der­lin­ing a long-stand­ing sup­port of Scot­tish pro­duc­ers across all sec­tors of the food and drink in­dus­try.

ALDI cur­rently has 74 stores in Scot­land with plans to open an ad­di­tional four by the end of the year.

Richard Hol­loway, man­ag­ing direc­tor for ALDI in Scot­land, said: ‘At­tract­ing the best peo­ple is cru­cial to our fu­ture ex­pan­sion plans.

‘Our ap­proach is to re­cruit the best peo­ple in re­tail, build amaz­ing teams and in­vest in each em­ployee’s long-term ca­reer de­vel­op­ment to en­sure they op­er­ate in an en­vi­ron­ment where they feel en­gaged, mo­ti­vated and chal­lenged.

‘Work­ing at ALDI comes with mar­ket-lead­ing pay, ben­e­fits and ca­reer op­por­tu­ni­ties that are un­ri­valled in the supermarket sec­tor, and we’re look­ing for­ward to re­ceiv­ing ap­pli­ca­tions for th­ese new roles in Scot­land.’
