An Aldi colleague in Lanarkshire is celebrating a work anniversary milestone this month after working at the supermarket for 20 years.   

Jillian Cahill, Assistant Store Manager at Aldi in Kirkton St, Carluke, first joined the supermarket in 2002 as a Store Assistant.  Within a year Jillian had been promoted to Deputy Store Manager and then went on to progress to her current role. 

Jillian began her career at Aldi when she was just 24 years old in the original Wishaw store and quickly worked her way up to a management role. Following the birth of her second child, Jillian made the move to the Aldi Carluke store, as this allowed her to work closer to home.  

Jillian considers herself to be a “Specialbuys enthusiast”, who is always excited to discover what’s new on Aldi’s middle aisle.  

Speaking about her long service, Jillian said: “It has been a real privilege to work at Aldi for 20 years, and I’ve really enjoyed being part of Aldi’s journey. It’s incredible to see how far we’ve come. I’ve loved working here and want to thank my amazing colleagues who make it such a great place to come to work every day. I’m looking forward to the next 20.”  

When asked about her favourite products at Aldi, Jillian replied: “I have a real sweet tooth, and absolutely love the Mrs McGregor’s Caramel Shortcake Slices. They are just perfect with a cup of tea at the end of a long day.” 

Richard Holloway, Regional Managing Director for Scotland said: “Without the hard work and dedication of our colleagues, we wouldn’t be able to provide customers with the excellent and efficient service we’ve become known for.  

“Colleagues like Jillian are the cornerstone of our business and I thank her for her continued dedication throughout the last 20 years.”
