Retail Management Placement - Darlington

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

This is your chance to get a real taste of retail, as you're exposed to every facet of our business over the 12 months of your placement.

You'll spend the first few months in store, learning about (and actually doing) everyone's different roles. It can be very hard work: you could be stacking shelves, operating the till, serving customers… whatever's required, you're there with a helpful smile and a good head on your shoulders. Once you know what goes into every role, you'll be better equipped to manage and lead the team.

Along the way, you'll complete a number of different projects in a variety of areas across the business, including logistics, administration, property and trading. You'll also work alongside an Area Manager, getting a real insight into their role. As a result, you'll be perfectly placed to hit the ground running on our Area Manager Programme once you've graduated. It can be daunting – but it can also be a fantastic opportunity to learn and be inspired by a company that's so different to all the others.

From the moment you start at Aldi, we’ll look after you properly. You’ll get £25,375* for the 12 months you spend with us, together with four weeks’ holiday allowance (plus bank holidays). If the role fits, we’d love you to apply for a permanent role after you graduate.

*Based on a 50 hour contract.

What we are looking for

To be eligible to apply, you’ll need to be working towards a 2:1 in any discipline on a sandwich degree course. You’ll also have a minimum of 96 UCAS points (240 if using the old tariff) from your top three A-levels (excluding general studies). Please note we also accept 63 Scottish Highers (150 points if using the old tariff) as an equivalent to UCAS points. It’s important you have the right to work in the UK, a driving licence and access to a car.
