ALDI Ireland has initiated a recruitment drive to fill 450 vacancies across the retailer’s 153-store network in Ireland.
The company noted that it is recruiting for store assistants, including 330 permanent positions and 120 fixed-term contract positions.
Recruitment has begun, and ALDI is keen to fill all positions as soon as possible, as the company continues to open new stores and sees an increase in customer demand across its existing store network, while the retailer prepares for the busy Christmas period.
Welcoming the recruitment drive, Niall O’Connor, group managing director, ALDI Ireland, said, “We have a dedicated and talented team of 4,650 people across our 153 stores who support the business in delivering for our customers each and every day. We are always looking for talented, hard-working and committed people to join the ALDI family, as we continue to grow and develop the business in Ireland.
“We’re keen to fill these 450 positions quickly, as our stores are busier than ever, and as we approach the Christmas period. We look forward to welcoming new people to our team who will join a company committed to its customers and our value promise, which has never been more relevant or important than in these challenging economic times.”
According to the discounter, vacancies include roles at new stores and existing positions.
The jobs are available across the country, with 112 open vacancies in Dublin, 93 in Cork, 88 in Dublin, 40 in Galway, 28 in Kildare, 24 in Mayo, 17 in Wexford, 15 in Wicklow and 14 in Meath, in addition to vacancies in all other counties.
The new recruits will join the 4,650-strong ALDI team in Ireland and benefit from a competitive package, including market-leading pay and access to dedicated employee benefits and well-being supports, in addition to career progression opportunities.
The company created 1,050 jobs at the beginning of 2020 and added 600 new jobs to that in 2021, supporting the additional four new stores opened last year.
The recruitment drive comes following a number of significant investment announcements by ALDI in recent weeks, including the €63 million investment in the West of Ireland and the creation of 140 jobs, an €8.5 million supplier contract announcement with Broderick’s and Cookie Dó, and the ongoing expansion of ALDI’s store network, with the opening of its Ballina and Tuam stores, representing a €10 million and €12 million investment, respectively.
