UK: Aldi to create more than 6,000 new job roles in 2023

Aldi is set to create more than 6,000 new job roles as it looks to expand the business in 2023.

The discount grocer currently has more than 990 stores and employees around 40,000 people, however it is set to open new sites in cities such as Norwich and Newcastle this year.

Next month, Aldi will also be opening the doors to two new stores in Huddersfield and Shrewsbury.

Currently, the supermarket is recruiting for 450 jobs across its 11 regional distribution centres around the UK, offering store assistants a starting pay of £11 an hour nationally, rising to £11.90. For those within the M25, pay starts at £12.45, rising to £12.75, with all store assistants paid for breaks.

Aldi also increased pay rates for 7,000 warehouse colleagues this month, with selectors now receiving a minimum starting salary of £13.18 per hour, up from £11.48 this time last year.

“Demand for Aldi has never been higher as more and more people realise they can make significant savings on every shop without compromising on quality,” Aldi UK chief executive officer, said.

“It’s more important than ever that we are making it even easier for more people to shop with us – including by opening dozens of new stores.

“Our success is dependent on the amazing work that colleagues do, day in and day out, and we’re looking forward to welcoming thousands more colleagues to team Aldi throughout 2023.”
