  • Supply Chain / Administration / Property
    Join one of our office-based teams and learn more about a future where you can thrive, working alongside our talented teams on a range of essential tasks and projects.
  • Regional Project
    Your regional management team will give you the responsibility and autonomy to run your very own project, giving you exposure to project management with the opportunity to have a lasting impact on the business. Past projects have improved our audits, customer service training and property negotiations.
  • ​​​​​​​Head Office Experience
    Spend 2 weeks with our Head Office team, working with one or two departments to discover what life is like inside our UK HQ.

The time will fly, but it’s an incredibly rewarding opportunity. You will experience a placement year like no other, build your leadership skills and find the direction you want to take your career.

This isn't getting by. This is getting what you deserve. Working at Lidl is rewarding, in every sense, because we give you the training to succeed in your role and plenty of opportunities to progress your career here.
