The initiative is part of Aldi’s broader expansion strategy, which added 6,000 new jobs in 2023.  

Aldi UK learning and development director Lisa Murphy stated: “We’re on the lookout for hardworking and driven individuals to bolster our Aldi team. By joining our apprenticeship scheme, individuals will become experts in their roles and receive in-depth skills training at one of the fastest-growing retailers in the country.  

“The apprentices of today are the leaders of tomorrow, so we’re always on the hunt for more amazing individuals from all backgrounds to join our team.” 

In December 2023, Aldi announced price reductions for more than 40 of its most commonly purchased items, including coffee, tinned soups and pet food.
