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.
The National IT department is at the very heart of Aldi. We support a great mix of applications and processes that have been around for a long time, combined with being at the cutting edge when we need to be. For example, we heard about Apple Pay, investigated what it would mean to our business, and then launched it on the day it was released. We’re proactive and able to react quickly to business needs which is critical in the fast paced world of retail.
Like the rest of Aldi we are made up of small high performing teams. You can expect plenty of exposure and hands-on experience of an IT department within a global company. Training will involve you spending time with everyone, getting a real feel for the whole department and being part of a “home” team with a mentor.
Typically, you could join us as part of a technical team supporting the live business, part of a large scale project team or even have responsibility for a smaller scale project by yourself. Many of the opportunities available will depend on the business needs at the time. And, trust us, there’s always plenty going on at Aldi - our business is constantly growing and developing.
We’ll invest real time in you and, by the end of the year, we want you to have delivered something tangible for Aldi. IT degrees are useful but it’s more about having a natural interest in IT and a passion for what we’re trying to achieve as a business.
