Our National Office

Our National Office is located in Naas, Co. Kildare with additional departments located in Mitchelstown, Co. Cork.  Our Naas office is where you will find our Buying, Marketing, PR, Sustainability and Supply Chain teams.

We are a fast-growing team of dedicated individuals working together to achieve a common goal, which is to ensure we continue to provide our customers with great quality products at the lowest possible prices. That means we have to understand what customers are looking for and how we can offer it to them. It’s dynamic work where we have to adapt quickly and rely on our entrepreneurial spirit.

Browse our National roles

There are many key roles in this area of the business, from those who carve a strategic path to those who assist our daily activities. Don’t be fooled by the ‘Assistant’ aspect. You’ll also be looking after product ranges and driving our National Department forward. 

National Buying Assistant (Naas Only)

As a National 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).
