ALDI begins WA recruitment drive

ALDI Australia this week opened applications for store managers and assistant store managers across Western Australia, as it prepares for statewide expansion in 2016.

Other roles including trainee store manager and store assistant positions will open from December 12, with almost 400 new positions across WA available in total.

ALDI Managing Director Western Australia Viktor Jakupec says the retailer is looking for “dynamic, enthusiastic and ambitious people to help bring the ALDI difference to Western Australia”.

“ALDI employees are highly motivated and dedicated to delivering the best shopping experience to our customers,” he said. “In return, they’re provided with rewarding careers, development opportunities and industry-leading employment benefits.”

As part of its commitment to staff, ALDI offers paid maternity leave (18 weeks at half pay), five weeks’ annual leave for full-time employees, and salaries the retailer describes as “well above industry standards”. New employees will undergo extensive training to learn the ALDI way of doing business. West Australian store managers and assistant store managers will also receive in-store training at one of ALDI’s stores on the eastern seaboard.

“Our commitment to the personal development of ALDI employees starts from day one,” Mr Jakupec said. “ALDI’s training program sets our employees up for career success. We’ve enjoyed seeing our staff grow alongside our business, and independent employee surveys have consistently shown high levels of job satisfaction.”

As ALDI’s West Australian expansion continues to progress, confirmed locations of interest include Nedlands, Lakelands, Belmont, Australind, Mandurah, Cannington, Camillo, South Lake, Haynes, Halls Head, Wattle Grove, Lakeside, Joondalup, Midland, Rockingham, Ellenbrook, Southern River, Busselton, Kwinana, Maddington, Mundaring, Secret Harbour and Waikiki.

ALDI’s first store-manager and assistant-store-manager positions will be filled from December 2015, with hiring for all levels to continue throughout 2016. Applications are available via
