Aldi is proud to have a loyal customer base. But we’re winning new customers all the time through price and quality. Customer Services is the key to keeping them, ensuring that we deliver the highest possible service to every individual who comes into contact with Aldi. We even work with many different areas across the business such as Buying, Quality Assurance and Stores to ensure our information can be utilised from every angle.
Things feel different here. We don’t have 101 processes that you’re expected to stick to. We want our people to be ‘Customer Champions’, doing what’s best for the customer by going that little bit further. You have room to manoeuvre, more flexibility, more head space to change things quickly and get the best possible results for our customers.
There are around 100 colleagues in this team which makes it one of the largest within Head Office. But as Aldi grows, it naturally follows that this team must grow too. We look for great communicators with integrity, passion and adaptability. The kind of people who know what it takes to keep every customer smiling.
What kind of roles are there?
We have a Director who heads up the department, supported by Customer Service Manager, Team Leaders and Advisors. Team Leaders typically have a background as an Advisor, but are now performing at a more senior level. Customer Service Advisors look after all the online, telephone and postal correspondence we receive from customers every day. To make sure we respond to all our customers quickly and efficiently, we have specific targets that we work towards.
Customer Service Advisor
Reporting to the Customer Service Team Leader, you’ll provide the very best service to our customers, using all your training, knowledge and initiative.
It’s a role that’s full of variety. The way our Advisors communicate with customers has massively changed over the past few years. As well as letters and phone calls, you’ll be responding to emails and social media postings, during and after the sale.
Success relies on your ability to really understand the needs and experiences of each customer and treat them as an individual. Then you’ll need to inject your own personality into each and every call or email so that the customer has no doubt they’re getting the kind of treatment they’ve come to expect from Aldi. Always, your goal will be to give our customers a great impression, and keep them coming back for more
The role is a full time position covering 40 hours across the week. The department is operational Monday - Saturday 8am-8pm and 10-4pm on Sunday so weekend working will also be required.
We’re good at lots of things at Aldi, but we’re particularly good at looking after our people. Yes, you’ll need to work hard and we expect you to be committed (you know, turning up on time, working hard, that sort of thing) but we’ll make every effort to show our appreciation. That’s why we offer the following benefits:
Yes, the rumours are true: we pay incredibly well. But in return, we’ll ask a lot of you. That’s why we want you to feel looked after.
Nice working environment
Fresh. Energised. Attractive. Those are just some of the terms you could use to describe where you’ll work. It’s the kind of place where you can do great things. A place where your ideas will be heard and you’ll have the freedom to put them into action.
Excellent work-life balance
We always make sure our people have a great work-life balance. Plenty of time off, fantastic benefits and some decent salaries to holiday in style.
Great opportunities to develop
At Aldi we’ll value you for what you can do, rather than where you’ve come from. So we’ll accept, recognise and often implement your ideas and recognise your contribution.
Did you know... our Customer Services team log around 940,000 calls, emails and letters from customers every year.
