Aldi is calling for staff affected by the collapse of Wilko to get in touch, with more than 6,000 jobs currently available across its UK stores.
Britain’s fourth-largest supermarket, which recently announced that it is creating 800 jobs in new stores over the coming months, said today that it is also recruiting for a large volume of other store roles across the country to support its continued expansion.
Aldi hopes to offer these long-term retail roles to those who have lost their jobs as a result of the Wilko downturn, with a range of positions available from Store Assistant and Caretaker all the way to Store Manager.
Kelly Stokes, Recruitment Director at Aldi UK, said: “We continue to welcome more and more customers to Aldi stores every week, and we are working hard to meet the huge demand for our unbeatable prices.
“That means finding thousands of new Aldi colleagues to support this growth, which will hopefully be of interest to those who have recently lost out due to closures elsewhere.”
Aldi colleagues are the best-paid in the UK supermarket sector. Store Assistants receive starting pay of £11.40 per hour and those based in London receive £12.85 per hour, while it is the only supermarket to pay for breaks which can be worth up to £972 a year.

Aldi is spreading the festive cheer and bringing together local communities by donating Christmas lunches to those in low-income areas across the UK.
Britain’s fourth-largest supermarket is working in partnership with Company Shop Group to provide free Christmas dinners at Community Shops in the run-up to Christmas.
Aldi has announced when its stores will be open over Christmas and New Year.
From Monday 18th December to Saturday 23rd December, shoppers can visit Aldi stores between 7am and 10pm to pick up everything they need to celebrate Christmas, at the lowest possible prices.
