Aldi ramps up recruitment

aldiAldi Australia has announced it is recruiting for over 400 new positions across Perth and its surrounds, as it prepares for its Western Australian expansion in 2016.

This new hiring announcement comes following a successful recruitment period for Aldi, with 45 store manager and assistant store manager positions having been filled. These managers were selected from over 3,000 applicants and will begin training in January 2016.

The company has now opened applications for trainee store managers, and retail assistant positions.

“We’re delighted to see such strong enthusiasm from the Western Australian public to join the Aldi business,” said Viktor Jakupec, MD, Aldi-Western Australia.

“As one of the country’s fastest growing retailers, Aldi is looking for dynamic, enthusiastic and ambitious people to help bring the Aldi difference to Western Australia,” said Jakupec.

“Aldi employees are highly motivated and dedicated to delivering the best shopping experience to our customers. In return, they are provided with rewarding careers, development opportunities and industry-leading employment benefits.”

New employees will undergo extensive training to learn the company’s way of conducting  business.  Western Australian store managers are currently receiving in-store training at one of Aldi’ existing stores on the eastern seaboard.

“Our commitment to the personal development of Aldi employees starts from day one,” Jakupec said.

“Aldi’s training program sets our employees up for career success. We’ve enjoyed seeing our staff grow alongside our business and independent employee surveys have consistently shown high levels of job satisfaction.”

As the company’s Western Australian expansion continues to progress, confirmed locations of interest include Cannington, Southern River, Halls Head, Kwinana, Rockingham, Harrisdale, Australind, South Lake, Joondalup, Butler, Camillo, Mundaring, Mandurah and Ellenbrook.
