ALDI Australia is currently seeking applicants for its 2023 Graduate Program.
According to the retailer, participants will be provided with the right tools and training for success and are paired with a mentor who supports them throughout the duration of the two-year program.
ALDI says the program focuses on all areas of leadership, with the aim to help develop graduates in the areas of:
- Business acumen
- Leading a team
- The commercial requirements of ALDI’s operations
- The logistics involved in providing essential goods to Australian shoppers
“Moreover,” says ALDI, “they will learn about ALDI’s growth strategy, explore new markets with our property teams and understand the frontline of our ‘Good Different’ store network.”
ALDI Group Director of Human Resources and Projects Hayden Rydberg says the fast-paced program is very rewarding as graduates are given the opportunity to take ownership of their careers early on, learning skills that will benefit the entirety of their professional working life.
“It’s not just the industry leading remuneration, five weeks annual leave and fully expensed company car that makes the program lucrative for professionals just out of university…,” he says. “It’s an opportunity for ambitious future leaders to hit the ground running in a supportive environment where you will learn directly from industry leaders, all while accelerating your career with a rewarding and dynamic retail business.”
Upon successful completion of the program, the graduates take on the role of Executive Manager of Store Operations and have responsibility for three to five “efficient and successful” ALDI stores and mentor a team of up to 100 retail employees at all levels.
