Aldi To Create 5,000 New Supermarket Jobs In The UK

Aldi has announced further expansion plans which will see the German discount retail chain create around 5,000 new full and part time jobs in the United Kingdom.

Aldi is to open a further 130 supermarket in the UK before the end of 2020, creating an average of almost 40 full and part time vacancies at every new store.

Aldi has grown to be the fifth biggest supermarket chain in the UK & Ireland and will have over 900 stores when the latest round of expansion is completed over the course of the next two years.

The company already employs over 30,000 members of staff in the UK and Ireland but will swell their headcount by a further 16 per cent to cross the 35,000 milestone of employees over the next two years.

The German supermarket has previously said that it is aiming to reach 1,000 stores across the UK and Ireland by the end of 2022.

Announcing the new jobs, the chief executive of Aldi UK & Ireland, Giles Hurley, said: “Our future investment plans underline our continued commitment to growing responsibly in the UK. That means having a positive and lasting impact on the economies where we operate and improving the lives of British people.”

“Our fundamental purpose remains; to bring outstanding quality groceries at the lowest prices for our customers, creating jobs and supporting British farming and manufacturing. In 2020, Aldi will have been serving British shoppers for 30 years. In that time, we’ve become part of the fabric of British life. We’re proud to be reaffirming our commitment today,” added Mr Hurley.
