Working in Regional Administration

Every Aldi Region (and there are 13 across the UK and Ireland) has its own dedicated team of Administrators. They support every area of the business, so it’s a fast-paced, professional, hard-working culture (well, this is Aldi after all). There’s also a very strong culture of efficiency, and working past your normal hours (8am – 4.30pm) doesn’t tend to happen, unless there’s a real business need (we did say we’re hard-working). Many of our colleagues say it feels like a family and that there’s plenty of support, all the way up to Director level.   

Browse our Regional Administration roles

There are a variety of roles in this area, it depends where your skills and interests lie. Whichever role you choose, you’ll need to be ready for an environment where colleagues are professional, focused and never waste a minute. Choose which level suits you the best.

Property Assistant

Your role is mainly a financial one, as you’ll be invoicing contractors and getting involved in financial reporting and projections, that kind of thing. You’ll also be the main point of contact for all queries associated with new builds and repairs to existing properties. So you might be speaking with Area Managers, construction management teams, legal teams, utility companies, local residents or people offering sites that Aldi could build on.

You’ll also support the Property Director by collating board packs when they need to present a new site to the board, and review the running costs and profitability once a new store is open. So you might well be looking at monthly projections and capital expenditure. There are plenty of guidelines and procedures to help you, so there is not too much pressure in terms of decision-making (apart from how you manage your workload). Some accounts experience would be useful here.

Salary

£28,755- £32,075 rising in increments to £36,320 - £39,330 in year 5 (regional differences may apply).

Holiday allowance

5 weeks’ annual leave plus Bank Holidays.

Hours and benefits

You’ll work a 40-hour week, working from Monday – Friday. Plus, you’ll receive a company pension and private employee medical insurance after 4 years, company maternity and adoption leave as well as company paternity pay after 2 years.

Logistics Assistant

Providing support to our Logistics Director, you’ll get involved in all kinds of tasks such as managing our fleet of company cars and new iPhones. You’ll need to order cars for new colleagues (along with fuel, oil and car wash cards), provide admin support to Section Managers in the warehouse, carry out fleet inspections (dealing with any accidents or repairs) and set up new iPhones for Area Managers.

It can be quite challenging collecting information about mileage and fuel from our busy Area Managers or predicting how many cars will be needed. But you’ll be a smart, energetic individual who’s ready for anything.

Trading Assistant

You’ll be ordering all the stock into the warehouse that will eventually be taken to our stores. Quite tricky when you need to factor in things like customer behaviour or our unpredictable weather. Trading Assistants will be ordering specific categories (in response to information from Corporate Buying) and then entering orders that are automatically emailed to suppliers. 

There’s plenty of liaison with suppliers, hauliers and the warehouse about delivery issues, and you’ll need to communicate with stores on a daily basis (via a store bulletin). Importantly, you’ll recommend volumes for new product orders, look at how well products are performing and feed back to Corporate Buying. You’ll also respond to any RFS (removal from sale) or EPW (emergency product withdrawal) issues. We don’t look for specific experience, but you’ll certainly need to know your way around an Excel spreadsheet.

Store Operations Assistant

You’ll be there to support the Store Operations Directors with all kinds of activities. Things like (deep breath…) admin support, regular liaison with Area Managers (and monitoring their KPIs), frequent conversations with Buying and Advertising (regarding access to stores and supplier visits), national audit paperwork, Personnel paperwork (such as interview materials), arranging training for Area and Store Managers, ordering staff uniforms and some admin duties for the Store Operations Director. Did you get all that? It’s a very busy, very involved role and there’s a large amount of multitasking. A whizz with spreadsheets, you’ll also be full of common sense and with bags of energy and initiative.
