Aldi To Recruit 1,000 Workers In Spain In Fourth Quarter

German discount supermarket chain Aldi said on Monday that it is looking to recruit 1,000 workers in Spain during the last quarter of the year, ahead of the festive season.

The company said it plans to increase the number of workers hired in the country by 16% to 7,500 following an expansion in stores across different Spanish regions.

Aldi is among the eight biggest supermarket chains in Spain by number of customers, according to recent data from consulting firm Kantar.

Aldi's British arm is also looking to recruit 3,000 workers ahead of the holiday season.

Ireland Recruitment Drive 

Aldi Ireland also announced on Monday that it has initiated a recruitment drive to fill 450 vacancies across the retailers’ 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.

UK Recruitment Drive 

The British arm of German discounter Aldi said on Thursday 6 October that it was looking to recruit 3,000 workers ahead of the festive trading period.

Privately owned Aldi, which earlier this month overtook Morrisons to become Britain's fourth-biggest supermarket group, said it is looking to fill over 2,000 temporary and permanent store positions.

It is also recruiting for more than 850 roles across its 11 regional distribution centres.

Britain's labour market is tight and a raft of retailers have recently announced pay rises.
