Aldi UK CEO Giles Hurley said: “Our colleagues work incredibly hard and 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 as we progress towards our goal of making affordable, quality food accessible to everyone.”  

The recruitment drive is part of the retailer’s broader strategy of opening 500 additional stores across Britain, with an investment of £1.4bn planned for 2023 and 2024.  

This investment will expand its distribution and store network and enhance existing stores and technology infrastructure. 

Aldi operates 1,000 stores in the country and employs 45,000 staff.  

In January 2024, Aldi UK revealed plans to hire 500 individuals for its national apprenticeship scheme.
