DOZENS of jobs are being advertised in Warrington as part of a huge recruitment drive by Aldi.

The national supermarket chain has five stores in the town in Stockton Heath, the town centre, Birchwood, Orford and a new store at Gemini.

The German discount retailer also recently said it was on the lookout for sites in town centres or on the outskirts of towns to set up shop – with Warrington a key area for expansion.

At present, Aldi is looking to hire 290 colleagues in Cheshire this year as the company looks to open new stores and update others.

A search of the recruitment website of Britain’s fourth largest supermarket shows around 100 roles are available in Warrington.

Aldi is on the lookout for people of all levels of experience to fill roles, with salaries of up to £65,995 on offer.

The roles include full and part-time positions such as store manager and store assistant, and the recruitment push is part of a nationwide expansion drive, with Aldi pledging to create a total of more than 5,500 new jobs up and down the country in 2024.

Store and warehouse assistants at Aldi receive a starting salary of £12-per-hour, rising to £12.95 nationally.

Aldi is also the only supermarket to offer paid breaks, which for the average store colleague is worth more than an additional £900 a year.

Giles Hurley, chief executive officer of Aldi UK, said: “Our colleagues work incredibly hard, and they are without a doubt a huge part of our success at Aldi.

“We continue to welcome more and more customers to Aldi stores every week, not just because of our unbeatable prices and British sourcing, but also our amazing colleagues.

“We are looking forward to welcoming even more colleagues up and down the country to Team Aldi during 2024.

“This is another step in accelerating progress towards our goal of making affordable, quality food accessible to everyone.”

Aldi recently committed to opening 500 more stores across Britain and is investing more than £1.4billion throughout 2023 and 2024 as it progresses towards hitting this long-term target.

This investment includes work to expand its distribution and store network, as well as further improving existing stores and technology infrastructure to support growth.
