Everything you need to know about our Area Manager Programme

We’ve had lots of incredible success with our Area Manager Programme. In fact, we’re No.5 in the Times Top 100 ‘Best Graduate Employers’, and many of our Directors (even our CEO) started out as Area Managers. To top it off, it’s not only for recent graduates. It’s also an amazing opportunity to change your career. You can certainly expect hard work, but you’ll also experience all of the support, development and training to succeed. Once you get the keys to your own area, it will feel like you’re running your own €multi-million business. Amazing.

 “I wanted to work with Aldi because of the level of responsibility you’re given. You’re expected to take accountability for everything you do, which I really like. If you’re going to succeed at Aldi, you have to push yourself and I think that’s important for people to know early on.”
