Our Head Office

Here you’ll find the dedicated team of Aldi people sharing a fast-moving, dynamic, open plan environment. We call it our ‘engine room’ because everything that happens here drives the Stores side of our business. 

We’re talking Administration, Buying, Corporate Responsibility, Marketing & PR, Recruitment & Training and Property to name but a few. Believe us when we say, everything has to be silky smooth and working perfectly. The business depends on the actions and decisions we make.

It’s a place where you’re trusted to think for yourself, and take complete ownership over your role. What’s more, because we’re one of the world's most successful retailers, you get to do far more than you would anywhere else. For instance, if you’ve got a great idea that’ll help everything run even smoother and more effectively than it does now, you’ll be encouraged to put it into practice. After all, that’s how we get better. And why it’s so enjoyable to work here.

Buying Assistant (Naas Only)

As a Corporate Buying Assistant, you’ll play an incredibly important role in the whole Buying process. Working closely with a Buying Director, you’ll make sure that they have everything they need to negotiate the best deals.

That involves keeping up communication with suppliers and people across the Aldi business and making sure that every tender process is managed effectively. From ensuring we have great working relationships with our suppliers, to crunching the numbers and putting tender documents and contracts together, you’ll get involved in every aspect of the buying lifecycle. You might even get the chance to recommend products to your Buying Director and make presentations.

Obviously, you’ll need to be well organised and a good communicator, with an eye for detail and the ability to analyse statistics effectively. That may sound like a lot but, in return, you’ll enjoy the chance to put forward your ideas and influence our Buying process. In fact, join us and you’ll feel more like an Assistant Buyer, rather than a Buying Assistant (and yes, to us there’s a big difference).

Marketing/PR Assistant (Naas Only)

We’re a relatively small, tight-knit team who are passionate about what we do. The most important thing is that we always present Aldi in a unique, powerful and consistent way in a tough marketplace.

Providing knowledgeable and insightful support to the Marketing/PR Manager in all areas of advertising, marketing and PR, you’ll work with your colleagues to ensure that Aldi’s message is crystal clear. You’ll be a great multitasker, able to deliver on time and on budget to a high standard. You’ll also manage the accurate flow of information into (and out of) the department in an efficient and discreet way. But perhaps your biggest quality is to remain calm under pressure. That way, we can get that press release out or that ad in the paper in a fast, efficient and effective way. True Aldi style.

Human Resource Assistant (Mitchelstown Only)

Working in HR, you’ll help to research, design and implement the most cost effective, efficient tools and methods that support either the Recruitment or Training of our people. Always, it’s about making sure we’ve got the right people, with the right skills, in the right place. It’s also about keeping our people happy and motivated so that we continue to be an employer of choice.

There are plenty of challenges on a daily basis, so we’ll need you to take the initiative and share our passion for creating innovative, consistent recruitment and training. You’ll also be involved in helping to develop an effective PR and Marketing strategy so that we can continue to attract and retain the very best people. It’s a role that’s full of variety and challenge requiring a talented individual who’s used to supporting a busy department.

Regional Administration Assistant - Accounts

You’ll be the person who ensures that we pay all the invoices that don’t relate to merchandise (such as utility bills, repairs, window cleaning, that kind of thing). Among other tasks, you’ll collate all the sales from our stores, every seven days, and pass this information to Corporate. You’ll also compare store deposits with bank statements and deal with queries from suppliers who need paying. It’s a very varied, challenging role. However, there’s always support from the Finance & Administration Director. It’s always useful to have some accounting experience, but not necessarily an accounting qualification.

Regional Administration Assistant - Store Accounts

Responsible for all stock control in stores, you’ll play a valuable role. You might be sending information to stores to ensure that we’re always up-to-date with sales, processing inventory paperwork or charging stores for direct deliveries (such as milk and newspapers). Often you might need to respond to a query from an Area Manager during an inventory or deal with a claim from a store regarding over or under delivery of stock.

You might also need to maintain and distribute MDTs, which are machines that stores use to order stock. Store Accounts Assistants are often relied upon for their experience, especially since many of our Area Managers are quite new to the role. You’ll make basic, day-to-day decisions regarding store stock queries (depending on whether you feel that the store or the warehouse is correct).

Regional Administration Assistant - Merchandise Accounts

Your main objective is to pay all merchandise invoices on time to keep suppliers happy. In this instance, we mean all the goods that are sold in store, including the direct deliveries, such as newspapers and milk.

You’ll be entering invoices into the system (which could be over 2000 a week). If the system is happy with the value of the invoice (compared to the order) it will accept it. If not, it will highlight a query and you’ll need to investigate this. You’ll also deal with supplier queries and do the VAT return. It’s a very varied, challenging role and most people who join us have a basic understanding of accounts (rather than an accounting qualification).

Regional Administration Assistant - Logistics

Providing support to our Logistics Director, you’ll get involved in all kinds of tasks such as managing our fleet of company cars. You’ll need to order cars for new colleagues (along with fuel cards), provide admin support to Section Managers in the warehouse, carry out fleet inspections (dealing with any accidents or repairs). It can be quite challenging collecting information about mileage and fuel from our busy Area Managers or predicting how many cars will be needed. But you’ll be a smart, energetic individual who’s ready for anything.

Regional Administration Assistant - Payroll

You’ll ensure that everyone is entered into the payroll system so that they’re paid correctly at the end of each month. You might need to prepare a new starter pack, liaise with the stores regarding their rota, deal with requests for references, speak to agencies in relation to tax or PRSI contributions, as well as produce month end statistics… phew, busy, busy. Ideally, you’ll have some experience of payroll and HR, plus an understanding of topics such as tax, pensions and contracts of employment.

Regional Administration Assistant - Finance & Administration

You’ll get involved in all sorts of tasks to support the Finance & Administration Director (FAD).  You might be coordinating training for the Head Office team and managing the role out of new IT equipment. Added to that, you’ll be looking after the diary of the FAD, acting as an IT Administrator (for instance, creating users, changing passwords), project managing any office refurbishment and set up new IT equipment for Area Managers. So it’s a full and varied role, requiring a switched-on, capable individual.

Regional Administration Assistant - Property

Your role is mainly a financial one, as you’ll be invoicing contractors and getting involved in financial reporting and projections, that kind of thing. You’ll also be the main point of contact for all queries associated with new builds and repairs to existing properties. So you might be speaking with Area Managers, construction management teams, legal teams, utility companies, local residents or people offering sites that Aldi could build on. You’ll also support the Property Director by collating board packs when they need to present a new site to the board, and review the running costs and profitability once a new store is open. So you might well be looking at monthly projections and capital expenditure. Accounts experience would be useful in this role.

Regional Administration Assistant - Trading

You’ll be ordering all the stock into the warehouse that will eventually be taken to our stores. Quite tricky when you need to factor in things like customer behaviour or our unpredictable weather. Trading Assistants will be ordering specific categories (in response to information from Corporate Buying) and then entering orders that are automatically emailed to suppliers.  There’s plenty of liaison with suppliers, hauliers and the warehouse about delivery issues, and you’ll need to communicate with stores on a daily basis (via a store bulletin). Importantly, you’ll recommend volumes for new product orders, look at how well products are performing and feed back to Corporate Buying. You’ll also respond to any RFS (Removal from Sale) or EPW (Emergency Product Withdrawal) issues. We don’t look for specific experience, but you’ll certainly need to know your way around an Excel spreadsheet.

Regional Administration Assistant - Store Operations

You’ll be there to support the Store Operations Directors with all kinds of activities. Things like (deep breath…) admin support, regular liaison with Area Managers (and monitoring their KPIs), frequent conversations with the Buying and Advertising teams (regarding access to stores and supplier visits), national audit paperwork, personnel paperwork (such as interview materials), coordinate training for Area and Store Managers, ordering staff uniforms and some admin duties for the Store Operations Director. Did you get all that? It’s a very busy, very involved role and there’s a large amount of multitasking. A whizz with spreadsheets, you’ll also be full of common sense and with bags of energy and initiative.
