If retail’s your thing and you’re intrigued by the Aldi story, this is your chance to gain the perfect insight. Our year-long placements offer intensive training, so you can see how we tick from every angle. More than that, you’ll learn a lot about yourself, as you tackle brand-new situations and prove your worth in our extraordinary retail environment.
Whether you join us on a General Management, National Logistics, National Buying, eCommerce or IT Placement, you’ll be in the thick of all the action. Don’t forget, we’ve achieved our success through absolute determination and extraordinary focus so we’re not about to let you sit back and ‘take it all in’.
Over the 52 weeks, you’ll experience early responsibility and rare exposure to the internal workings of our business. We’re a big fan of rotating our students across different teams, it really demonstrates how operations fit together to ensure a smooth-running business.
Students interested in the programme should be working towards a 2:1 in any discipline on a sandwich degree course. And for our eCommerce or IT programmes, a relevant degree will definitely come in handy but is not essential. A minimum of 96 UCAS points (240 points if using the old tariff, or 63 points for Scottish Highers) from three A-levels/Scottish Highers will also be required along with the right to work in the UK. And, for those interested in our General Management Industrial Placement, a full UK driving licence and access to a car will be essential. All other placements in Atherstone don't require access to a car, but you'll still need a driving licence.
