ALDI Australia is commencing recruitment for almost 400 new positions across Western Australia, as it prepares for statewide expansion in 2016.
From today, ALDI has opened applications for Store Managers and Assistant Store Managers. Other roles including Trainee Store Manager and Store Assistant positions will open from December 12.
“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 Viktor Jakupec, ALDI Managing Director – Western Australia.
“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.”
As part of its commitment to staff, ALDI offers paid maternity leave (18 weeks at half pay), five weeks annual leave for full-time employees and salaries that are well above industry standards.
New employees will undergo extensive training to learn the ALDI way of doing business. West Australian Store Managers and Assistant Store Managers will also receive in-store training at one of ALDI’s 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.”
