This Level 2 programme gives you a rare insight from some of the industry’s most talented people. You’ll learn all about how our products get from suppliers to our customers’ shopping baskets, and work your way towards a Level 2 Supply Chain Operative qualification.
It’s a fascinating process, with lots going on, but you’ll discover all the techniques to take on this rewarding challenge. And, with a structured career path, you’ll be well on the way to becoming a success within our business.
We don’t hang around at Aldi, and neither will you. So from the moment you start, you’ll be straight to it, signing your contracts, meeting your Assessor and completing all the paperwork to enrole onto your qualification.1 (of 12)
Focusing on your Level 2 Supply Chain Operative qualification, you’ll get to grips with our logistics operation, complete theory work and have regular reviews with your Assessor.2 (of 12)
Employee welfare is key, so we’re razor sharp about health, safety and security. From taking action if there’s an incident, to using emergency equipment correctly, you’ll learn how to keep yourself and everyone around you nice and safe.3 (of 12)
On top of your daily duties, you’ll also have to complete theory work. But don’t worry, while you might need to do a bit of revision later down the line, there’s very little you won’t have learnt from doing the job.4 (of 12)
Developing great relationships with colleagues is vital to an efficient and successful business. It’s about knowing when to help, when to ask others for a hand, and building plenty of trust in those around you.5 (of 12)
Here, you’ll learn the incredibly important job of picking goods that are ready for dispatch. You’ll then wrap and pack them, ensuring they end up where they’re supposed to be. In perfect condition.6 (of 12)
You can’t carry everything. Which is why you’ll learn how to use special logistics equipment to move goods. And we’ll teach you how to lift, transfer and settle goods to perfection (and safely, of course).7 (of 12)
Stock levels are the lifeblood of retail. Too much, and you’ll waste a lot. Too little, and our customers won’t find what they need. Which is why we’ll show you how to do inventory checks, and stay on top of stock levels and records.8 (of 12)
You’ll learn how to operate equipment within logistics, which could be mobile or fixed. It’s not just about knowing what bit of kit to use, but how to operate it safely and pack it away when you’re done.9 (of 12)
Every three months, you’ll meet up with your Section Leader, Logistics Manager and Assessor. Again, this is just to make sure you’re on track and performing well.10 (of 12)
On top of Assessor visits and Quarterly Reviews, you’ll also have Progress Reviews. Less formal than a Quarterly Review, they’re there to give you constant feedback about how you’re doing.11 (of 12)
Graduation is just the start of your amazing Aldi career. You’ll now be given the chance to move into a permanent position within the team – where you’ll begin to discover even more exciting opportunities.12 (of 12)
If you give your absolute best, we’ll make every effort to show our appreciation. That’s why we offer a whole host of benefits.
We like to keep things nice and straightforward. There’s an online application form to highlight your key skills and experience. Once you’ve submitted your application, our hiring managers will screen your answers. If you are successful at this stage, you’ll then be invited to the next stage of the process.
Your Individual Interview or Group Assessment will take place at the Regional Distribution Centre. You'll be asked a series of questions and scenarios relating to the job role you have applied for.
Finally, you’ll take part in the ‘Aldi Experience’ where you’ll discuss the personal strengths you can bring to the role, and gain an insight into what working at Aldi’s really like.
We know…we’ve mentioned this rather a lot, but it’s important. You have to be the Aldi type to succeed here. You need to be right for us; and we need to be right for you.

We’ve got so many great things to say about our Logistics Apprenticeship Programme, but sometimes it just helps to hear from actual apprentices. Which is why we asked current Logistics Apprentices Lewis and Andy to talk about their experiences (and we even got one of our Hiring Managers to give you some hints and tips). So just hit play, sit back, and enjoy. Who knows, this could be you one day.
You don’t need any qualifications to apply for the Career Starter programme. You just need to be conscientious, ambitious and able to do things without being asked. You should have bags of common sense and take responsibility for yourself.
The Logistics Apprenticeship takes 12-15 months to complete. Providing you successfully complete your Level 2 Supply Chain Operative qualification (according to our high standards) you will move into one of our roles in the Warehouse.
You can apply during your final year at school. However, you must be at least 16 and have received your exam results before you start on the Apprenticeship Programme.
We’ll be accepting applications for our Logistics Apprenticeship throughout the year as we recruit for our programme all year round.
We accept applications all year round and start dates can be flexible.
