Aldi is hiring more than 1,000 people to work in its UK stores on a temporary basis over the Christmas period as part of its biggest-ever festive recruitment drive.
The supermarket is looking for people to support its permanent colleagues with replenishing stock and picking and packing orders made through click and collect and Deliveroo.
Aldi is extending its click and collect trial to 200 more stores before Christmas, while almost 130 Aldi stores now offer an on-demand delivery service with Deliveroo.
The 1,000 temporary Christmas roles are in addition to the 4,000 permanent jobs Aldi has already created in 2020. It currently has over 900 stores and employs around 35,000 people throughout the UK.
Store assistants at Aldi earn an industry-leading minimum hourly rate of £9.40 nationally, and £10.90 inside the M25.
Kelly Stokes, Recruitment Director at Aldi UK, said: “We always need extra support over the busy Christmas period, but this year we need more people than ever before to help keep our shelves fully stocked for the festive season.
“We look forward to welcoming new colleagues to the team, including those whose jobs in retail may have been impacted by the pandemic.”
