About Us

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 Ireland's fastest-growing supermarkets, 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.

What kind of roles are there?

 

 

Buying Assistant (Naas Only)

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)

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.

Personnel Development Assistant (Mitchelstown Only)

Personnel Development Assistant (Mitchelstown Only)

Working in the Academy, 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 seen as 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

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. 

Benefits

  • €40,500 rising to €50,500 after 4 years   
  • 5-day/40-hour week   
  • 5 weeks’ annual leave

  • Long service awards

 

Please note conditions apply to the above and specifics will be discussed at job offer stage. 

Regional Administration Assistant - Store Accounts

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).

Benefits

  • €40,500 rising to €50,500 after 4 years   
  • 5-day/40-hour week   
  • 5 weeks’ annual leave

  • Long service awards

 

Please note conditions apply to the above and specifics will be discussed at job offer stage. 

Regional Administration Assistant - Merchandise Accounts

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).  

Benefits

  • €40,500 rising to €50,500 after 4 years   
  • 5-day/40-hour week   
  • 5 weeks’ annual leave 
  • Full training provided

  • Long service awards

 

Please note conditions apply to the above and specifics will be discussed at job offer stage. 

Regional Administration Assistant - Payroll

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. 

Benefits

  • €40,500 rising to €50,500 after 4 years   
  • 5-day/40-hour week   
  • 5 weeks’ annual leave 
  • Full training provided   
  • Company pension after 4 years

Please note conditions apply to the above and specifics will be discussed at job offer stage. 

Regional Administration Assistant - Finance & Administration

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. 

Benefits

  • €40,500 rising to €50,500 after 4 years   
  • 5-day/40-hour week   
  • 5 weeks’ annual leave 
  • Full training provided

  • Long service awards

 

Please note conditions apply to the above and specifics will be discussed at job offer stage. 

Regional Administration Assistant - Property

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. There are plenty of guidelines and procedures to help you, so there is not too much pressure in terms of decision-making (apart from how you manage your workload). Some accounts experience would be useful here.

Benefits

  • €40,500 rising to €50,500 after 4 years   
  • 5-day/40-hour week   
  • 5 weeks’ annual leave 
  • Full training provided   
  • Company pension after 4 years   
  • Private employee medical insurance after 4 years   
  • Company sick pay scheme   
  • Company maternity and adoptive leave after 2 years  
  • Long service awards

 

Please note conditions apply to the above and specifics will be discussed at job offer stage. 

Regional Administration Assistant - Logistics

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 and car wash 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.

Benefits

  • €40,500 rising to €50,500 after 4 years   
  • 5-day/40-hour week   
  • 5 weeks’ annual leave 
  • Full training provided   
  • Company pension after 4 years   
  • Private employee medical insurance after 4 years   
  • Company sick pay scheme   
  • Company maternity and adoptive leave after 2 years  
  • Long service awards

 

Please note conditions apply to the above and specifics will be discussed at job offer stage. 

Regional Administration Assistant - Trading

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. 

Benefits

  • €40,500 rising to €50,500 after 4 years   
  • 5-day/40-hour week   
  • 5 weeks’ annual leave 
  • Full training provided   
  • Company pension after 4 years   
  • Private employee medical insurance after 4 years   
  • Company sick pay scheme   
  • Company maternity and adoptive leave after 2 years  
  • Long service awards

 

Please note conditions apply to the above and specifics will be discussed at job offer stage. 

Regional Administration Assistant - Store Operations

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 Buying and Advertising (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. 

Benefits

  • €40,500 rising to €50,500 after 4 years   
  • 5-day/40-hour week   
  • 5 weeks’ annual leave 
  • Full training provided

Benefits

We pride ourselves on clarity here at Aldi. Yes you’ll work hard, but you’ll see exactly how your efforts, determination and fresh ideas are shaping our wonderful business. We don’t offer average packages because we don’t employ average people. Everything’s designed to ensure that you’re happy, fulfilled and proud to work for us.

Market-leading package

Yes, the rumours are true: we pay incredibly well. But in return, we’ll ask a lot of you. That’s why we want you to feel looked after.

Nice working environment

Fresh. Energised. Attractive. Those are just some of the terms you could use to describe where you’ll work. It’s the kind of place where you can do great things. A place where your ideas will be heard.

Excellent work-life balance

We always make sure our people have a great work-life balance. Plenty of time off, fantastic benefits and some great salaries to holiday in style

Great opportunities to develop

At Aldi we’ll value you for what you can do, rather than where you’ve come from. So we’ll accept, recognise and often implement your ideas and recognise your contribution.

Who We're Looking For

Let’s see where your skills lie. Do you love seeing how customers shop online? Are you keen to get award-winning products in the right stores at the right time? We’re sure you’ll find the perfect home for your fabulous skills. But whichever area you join, we will say this: there is an ‘Aldi type’. 

The thing you’ll find about Aldi people is that we really care about what we do. It means we go out of our way to do our absolute best – whether that’s for our customers or each other. So if you want to take things easy and like to stretch one bit of work across the whole day, we’re probably not for you. But if you’re ready to make brave decisions, influence the people around you and spot ways to make things happen quicker, smarter and more efficiently, our doors are open wide.

Buying >

This area drives the future growth of our business and demands high levels of commercial acumen and decision-making. Importantly, you’ll share our passion for doing business in the right way. We pride ourselves on how we treat our suppliers, and work hard to develop healthy relationships. This area promises pace, responsibility and the pleasure of seeing award-winning products on our shelves. 

Corporate Logistics >

This team aims to get our products from A to B (well, Supplier to Distribution Centre) in the most efficient way. Simple as that. We look for people who are willing to develop their potential through commitment and hard work. People who can use feedback as a learning tool and put a positive spin on every challenging situation..

Corporate Responsibility >

Behaving responsibly and ethically as a business is a huge deal to Aldi. You can’t join this team with a half-hearted interest in CSR. You’re right there, on the front line, celebrating best practice thinking with industry bodies, academic communities, retailers and suppliers.

Marketing & PR >

How would you cope if we decided: ‘Let’s put an ad in the national press tomorrow. You’ve got six hours’. Nice and calm? Or would you collapse in a quivering heap of sweat? This is the place for steady nerves, razor-sharp attention to detail and astonishing multi-tasking as you ensure Aldi’s message is bold, consistent and crystal clear.

Merchandising >

We advise the business on how products are displayed in an attractive and practical way. You can juggle conflicting priorities: balance what buying and store operations need, and come up with a solution that’s right for the business and our customers. Someone with the courage of their convictions, you’re organised, analytical and adaptable to change. 

Property >

This team is certainly feeling the impact of our astonishing growth. You’ll enjoy fast-paced days with an unusual level of responsibility. You’re driven, hardworking and you never cut corners – detail-conscious to the end. An element of humbleness will also go a long way. We work with quality consultants who have been with Aldi a long time, and we’re respectful of the knowledge they bring. 

Quality Assurance >

Aldi wouldn’t be Aldi unless we’re constantly challenging the status quo. Can we deliver products of the same (or higher) quality than the leading brand? Well, it’s working a treat so far. But only because we hire detail-driven, determined people who work tirelessly to ensure our product quality and safety standards are world class.

Quality Control >

You’ll find an abundance of dedicated perfectionists in this area. The kind of people who share our passion for the very strict criteria that Aldi products must live up to. (In fact, quality is so important that we have a zero tolerance policy.) Whichever role you’re in, it’s going to be challenging, but extremely rewarding.

Recruitment & Training >

You’ll be joining a lively, determined and focused team. We’re not looking for a specific ‘Personnel type’ - people have joined us from so many different HR, Admin and Retail backgrounds. But you will need to be a driven, hard-working and resilient individual. That’s what it takes to thrive in this department.

Where are we?

There are new stores (and store extensions) opening all the time. But right now, the picture looks something like this. Ireland is divided up into 2 Aldi regions. Each region has its own Head Office led by a Managing Director, a group of Directors and dedicated team of Administrators. Importantly, each region also has its own Regional Distribution Centre (or RDC) which takes care of the flow of goods, ensuring that our customers get all their favourite products on time.

 

 

    • Naas

      Opening in 2004, Aldi’s first Regional Distribution Centre in Ireland was located in County Kildare. All of our stores nationwide were serviced by this centre until demand and growth required the introduction of the Mitchelstown Regional Distribution Centre in September 2013.

    • Mitchelstown

      Further south, a second Regional Distribution Centre, located in Mitchelstown, North Cork, opened in September 2013.

  • United Kingdom

    • Aldi entered the UK market in the year 1990. We have 9 Distribution Centres across the UK with 50 - 100 stores in each region. Aldi is one of the fastest-growing grocery retailers in the UK and is also a regular contender for the top spot in The Times Top 100 ‘Best Graduate Employers’.

  • Germany

    • Back in 1961, the Albrecht brothers split the business into two groups: Aldi Nord (North) and Aldi Süd (South). The latter (which includes Aldi UK and Ireland) consists of over 5,000 stores. Did you know that Aldi Süd was the first big retailer in Europe to ban eight pesticides that were found hazardous to bees?

  • America

    • In 1976, one year after our 500th Aldi South store opened, Aldi US officially launched. We now have 1,500 stores across 34 states, plus recent expansion into California. This is where we initially launched our new concept store called ‘Aldi Food Market’ with fresh food and extensive chilled ranges at the heart of the offer.

  • Australia

    • Opened in 2001, we’ve got 400 stores serviced by 6 Distribution Centres. 91% of Aldi Australia’s fresh fruit and veg are grown within the country. Now that’s some sustainable sourcing. We were also the first Australian supermarket to join the Supplier Ethical Data Exchange (Sedex) which ensures more ethical practices in our supply chain.

  • Hong Kong

    • Not many people know we’re in Asia, but here we are. In 2012, we opened the Corporate Responsibility Unit Asia in Hong Kong. Not only does it realise our CR goals in the continent, it also helps to forge closer relationships with our suppliers.

  • Austria

    • We opened our doors in 1968. We’ve got 457 stores, 7 Distribution Centres and over 9,000 employees. Plus, we have 237 home-grown organic products and environmentally friendly cleaning products in our range. And, as of the beginning of 2016, we’ve been operating entirely carbon-neutral.

  • Switzerland

    • Opened in 2005, we’ve got 180 stores, 3 distribution centres and 2,410 employees. The first new store triggered a rush of bargain-hunters in one of the world’s most expensive countries. The car park at Altenrhein was full within 30 minutes!

  • Slovenia

    • Just like our Swiss stores, we opened in 2005. Although smaller in scale – we still have 78 stores, 1 distribution centre and over 1,300 employees. The stores carry around 700 food lines, including typical Slovenian products.

  • Hungary

    • We threw our doors open in 2008, across 107 stores, 1 Distribution Centre and with the help of over 1,800 employees. So far, we’ve won two ‘Superbrands’ awards (2014 and 2016). These awards recognise quality retailing in Hungary.
