Our marketing campaigns have successfully introduced our business to a much wider audience. Gone are the days when Aldi was thought of as merely ‘a discount retailer’. We’re now more appealing than ever with quality products, warm humour and a sense of doing the right thing by our customers and suppliers. Now, we need to make sure our strong communications continue, across every kind of media. As a relatively small team, so that means more responsibility, more focus on strategy and more chance to make an impact.
Our Marketing & Communications department is lean, smart and hugely effective. As with any Aldi department, we don’t need hundreds of people milling about. We have the right people getting some fantastic results for the business. So it’s not a place where you can relax and put your feet up. You’re expected to work very hard but you can see how the decisions you make are driving the business forward. Every task you do is important.
Our brand is everything to us so we’re very careful about who we have looking after it. As our Marketing Manager, you’ll be our brand guru, ensuring that the Aldi personality is always unique, powerful and consistent in the marketplace.
Reporting to the Marketing/PR Director, you’ll manage a team of Marketing/PR Assistants and oversee all our advertising, marketing and PR processes and systems. Importantly, you’ll work with marketing agencies to ensure that we tackle every challenge with efficiency, innovation and insight. For instance, if we need to get an ad in tomorrow’s national press, you’d swiftly get the agency on board, get the ideas, have them approved and get them out to press in around six hours. It’s incredibly fast-paced but you’ll be the kind of person who loves every minute.Apply

We’re a relatively small, tight-knit team who are passionate about what we do. The most important thing is that we always present Aldi in a unique, powerful and consistent way in a tough marketplace.
Providing knowledgeable and insightful support to the Marketing/PR Manager in all areas of advertising, marketing and PR, you’ll work with your colleagues to ensure that Aldi’s message is crystal clear. You’ll be a great multitasker, able to deliver on time and on budget to a high standard. You’ll also manage the accurate flow of information into (and out of) the department in an efficient and discreet way. But perhaps your biggest quality is to remain calm under pressure. That way, we can get that press release out or that ad in the paper in a fast, efficient and effective way. True Aldi style.Apply
