Aldi is one of Ireland’s fastest growing supermarkets and one of the world’s most successful retailers. We have a vast network of over 130 stores across the country and ambitious plans to open many more. We currently employ more than 3,000 people across Ireland alone and over 138,000 people worldwide, continuing our expansion in countries such the US, the UK, Australia and China to name but a few. Each year we look to recruit the most ambitious and dynamic graduates to join our 12 month Graduate Area Manager Training Programme. We look for graduates who combine intellect and fresh ideas with a determined, ‘roll your sleeves up’ attitude. The role is dynamic, evolutionary and filled with opportunity. If you’re looking to kick start your career in a dynamic, fast-paced environment, then a career at Aldi could be perfect for you.
On the 12-month Graduate Programme, you’ll gain a well-rounded view of how we do things at Aldi to become part of our growing talented Area Manager team. First up is your induction. Over two weeks, you’ll build up a clear picture of the business and what makes us so different. That's followed by a period of intensive training, taking in everything from stacking shelves to making decisions on how the store is run. Then the challenges really kick in as you're given the keys to your own store, and get to grips with managing your team and a €multi-million business. By the end of your first year, you should be ready to take on a full Area Manager role, with all the responsibilities that entails, from motivating employees to encouraging excellent performance. We give you the tool kit to deliver great results. The combination of on-the-job training and soft skills training will equip you with the necessary skills to achieve your potential as an Area Manager. Your ultimate aim? To develop your store teams to achieve the highest possible sales while ensuring an efficient and cooperative working environment, great customer service, minimal costs and maximum productivity.
