ALDI Australia is recruiting for more than 400 positions across Perth and its surrounds, as it prepares for its Western Australian expansion this year.
The retailer has opened applications for trainee store manager and retail assistant positions, with all applications available via ALDICareers.com.au. Recruitment closes January 29, 2016, before being reopened for a second round later in the year.
This new hiring announcement comes following a successful recruitment period for ALDI, with 45 store manager and assistant store manager positions having been filled. These managers were selected from more than 3,000 applicants and this month began training at ALDI’s stores on the eastern seaboard.
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, industry-leading training and salaries that ALDI Australia claims are “well above industry standards”.
“Our commitment to the personal development of ALDI employees starts from day one,” ALDI Managing Director – Western Australia Viktor 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 Western Australian expansion continues to progress, confirmed locations of interest include Cannington, Southern River, Halls Head, Kwinana, Rockingham, Harrisdale, Australind, South Lake, Joondalup, Butler, Camillo, Mundaring, Mandurah and Ellenbrook.
