Our Head Office is at the very centre of everything Aldi. Which is why we won’t waste any of your time. You’ll get an amazing introduction to our business, packed with world-class training. And you’ll have a mentor to support you throughout. Then, you’ll get immersed in at least one project, making decisions that will have a real impact on our business. There aren’t many students who can go back to university saying that.
Don’t be fooled by the word ‘Buying’ here. This large corporate department covers every aspect of the product lifecycle, from concept to shelf. During your training you will gain a broad overview of Corporate Responsibility (CR), Quality Assurance, PR & Marketing, and Corporate Logistics. None of these areas work in isolation, so it’s important to understand them all.
The rest of the your time will be spent specialising in say Corporate Responsibility or PR & Marketing, depending on the needs of the business, your choice of degree and your future plans Whichever area you join, you’ll be a real asset to your colleagues, working on personal and team projects, building relationships and solving problems in an environment where things change on a daily basis
We’re a business that welcomes fresh thinking so we’ll be hungry for new ideas and perspectives. You’ll be a naturally curious, enthusiastic person who is happy to speak up in meetings and get themselves noticed. This isn’t about your degree, it’s about your attitude: the passion you show for doing the very best job, whatever challenges you face.
Just like the rest of Aldi, we’re a positive, hardworking team who enjoy coming up with new processes and business change. But rather than having a commercial focus, we’re motivated by making a difference to people and the planet. Ideally with a relevant degree, we want to recruit an individual that is as passionate about British farming, food and our global environmental impact as much as we are. You’ll be based in our Resources team (Farming, Fish, Forestry and Fair Trade) but also get chance to work on projects across CR related to Health & Nutrition, Ethical Trading and Communities.
It’s a rare placement; relevant business experience that will stretch your thinking and question your lifestyle choices, as you help a global business implement social and environmental solutions
