ALDI ramps up SA recruitment drive

ALDI Australia is recruiting for more than 100 new positions across South Australia, as it ramps up recruitment for statewide expansion in 2016.

The retailer has opened applications for retail assistants and store management trainees, with applications available via www.aldicareers.com.au.

Recruitment closes September 27, before reopening for a second round next February. ALDI has already received more than 12,000 expressions of interest for these roles.

The new hiring announcement follows a successful recruitment period for ALDI’s first South Australian store managers, who commenced their roles last month.

“As one of the country’s fastest-growing retailers, ALDI is looking for dynamic, enthusiastic and ambitious people to help bring the ALDI difference to South Australia,” ALDI Managing Director – South Australia Viktor Jakupec said.

“ALDI employees are highly motivated and dedicated to delivering the best shopping experience to our customers. In return, they are 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 that are well above industry standards.

New employees will undergo extensive training to learn the ALDI way of doing business. South Australian retail assistants and store management trainees will also receive in-store training across the state.

As ALDI’s South Australian expansion continues to progress, areas of interest include West Lakes, Hawthorn, Mount Barker, Hallett Cove, Seaford Heights, Woodcroft, Victor Harbor, Parafield Gardens, Blakeview, St Agnes, Kilburn, Gilles Plains, Berri, Aldinga, Noarlunga, Modbury, Evanston, the Barossa, Golden Grove, Salisbury, Mt Gambier, Marion and Yorke Peninsula.
