Working in Property

Aldi is growing. Quickly. And Property plays a pivotal supporting role. Because with growth like this, there’s a real need to build up our property portfolio of stores, Regional Distribution Centres, warehouse and freezer environments, as well as National offices.

We deal with everyone from local councils to architects, developing strong relationships and creating robust project plans that fulfil our ambitious targets. Many of the projects we run are on fully active sites, so there are a lot of challenges to overcome. It means you’ll join a team that offers a lot of variety - not to mention exciting learning curves.

As one of the UK’s fastest growing supermarket chains, we’re opening new stores at lightning speed. It means our Property Teams are always kept on their toes and everything needs to run smoothly.

Regional Property Director

This role offers an enormous breadth of responsibility during a busy and exciting time for Aldi. Essentially, you’ll be expanding and improving our store network: identifying and recommending sites to the Managing Director, negotiating the purchase, sale or rental agreement, determining the site layout and appointing the team who will make it all happen.

There’s a huge amount of variety too. You might be dealing with a relatively small store extension or a multi-million pound development involving a huge team of consultants and suppliers. Whatever the project, you’ll make sure there’s minimal disruption, strong due diligence and accurate accounts. You’ll be skilled in dealing with councils – and the public – when submitting planning applications. Added to that, you’ll take care of everything from authorising property adverts and appointing property agents to implementing safety measures and structural checks.

You’ll have a talented team to support you, and you’ll be relied on to keep them motivated and performing to their best ability. As you would expect there are plenty of personnel duties too, for example, authorising holidays, organising training and carrying out performance reviews.

Massive change. Incredible growth. Huge responsibility. An opportunity in Property that’s hard to beat.
