Life at Lidl

We’re growing bigger and better every year and we believe one of the reasons behind our success is our brilliant people. Everyone here plays an important part in all of our achievements and pulls their weight – in return, you can expect an inclusive team culture and a firm commitment to your training and development. Add to that a simple, lean approach to business that makes life here challenging, but also enjoyable, because you’re really pushed to make the very most of yourself – and then some. Our carefully structured training plans and programmes will give you all the feedback and development you need, so that you always feel supported no matter what role or environment you are working within.

What we want in our graduates

We’re ambitious and bright as a business and that’s exactly what we’re looking for in our graduates. We’re not looking for one type of person. Or one set of skills. We’re certainly not looking for polished abilities and tonnes of experience. What we are looking for is personality and potential. Potential to go far, do big things. And then do even bigger things. You can start your Lidl journey in our stores, with various part-time roles available. If you are in your penultimate year you could join our one-year Retail Placement Programme or if you are looking for what’s next after your studies, you could join on one of our award winning graduate opportunities – our challenging and incredibly rewarding graduate programmes or a variety of graduate roles at management level.

Whatever your talent is and however you can show it off, we’re looking for that person with one-of-a-kind potential. Bring your best, we’ll do the rest.
