Retail Management Placement 2023 – Aldi – Darlington


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.

What we’ll offer you:

  • A competitive salary – we know just how challenging a programme like this is. Which is why we’ll reward you generously for it. On top of some amazing benefits, you’ll receive a £26,000 salary for the 12 months you spend with us.
  • Holiday allowance – there’s no denying that you’ll work really hard here at Aldi. Which is why it’s important that you have time to relax. So with four weeks’ holiday allowance, plus bank holidays, you’ll be able to put your feet up and come back raring to go.
  • Future opportunities – if you’ve worked hard and successfully completed the Retail Management Placement, you could be offered the opportunity to return after graduation on our Graduate Area Manager Programme. Your Direct Leader will need to recommend you first though.
  • Wellbeing – our wellbeing programme links to five key areas of wellbeing: physical, mental, nutritional, financial and social. Colleagues have access to an online wellness portal containing information and guidance, 24/7 Employee Assistance Programme and wellbeing related benefits.
  • Training & Support – with a dedicated mentor from day one, you’ll get the support you need. And even once the programme ends, you’ll get great development opportunities throughout your Aldi career.
  • Health & Lifestyle – you can also join our discounted Health Cash Plan and take advantage of gym membership discounts, discounted cinema tickets, money off holidays and more!
