About Us

There’s been a lot of excitement around our new eCommerce website. Now we’re able to bring great quality, great value wine and non-food Specialbuys to customers across the UK. This is your chance to work with one of the world’s biggest retail brands – and make it even better, as we launch our brand new eCommerce venture. Opportunities don’t come any bigger. 

The atmosphere in the department is unique. Nothing’s set in stone and there’s a real culture of challenging how and why we do things. You’ll have a sense of ownership and you’ll feel like you’re making a big contribution to what Aldi are delivering to the marketplace. There’s a real sense of pride in what we’re achieving.   

This is perfect for people with a passion for retail and online shopping, consumer behaviour and the psychology behind it. You’ll share our passion for giving our customers the best possible experience. 

What kind of roles are there?

Although we started with just four people (with furrowed brows, involved in very high level thinking and planning) we now have a number of teams operating at different levels:

  • eCommerce Manager
  • eCommerce Analyst
  • eCommerce Specialist
  • eCommerce Assistant
eCommerce Manager

eCommerce Manager

Our eCommerce team is like a business in its own right, with its own Trading, Merchandising, Logistics and Technology teams. Working closely with the eCommerce Director, you’ll help us build a strategy that enables us to source and select the right products and present them to our customers in exactly the right way. With the freedom to challenge, implement and manage methods, you’ll make proposals, monitor KPIs (including website analytics and operational metrics) and use marketplace trends to suggest improvements.

Managing your team, you’ll ensure that everyone understands the vision, and is working hard to achieve it. Because of your guidance, everyone can see how their ideas and passion will play a key role in our future. Hugely inspiring and energetic, you’ll take pride in giving our customers new and exciting ways to shop.

  • Nice working environment

    Fresh. Energised. Attractive. Those are just some of the terms you could use to describe where you’ll work. It’s the kind of place where you can do great things. A place where your ideas will be heard and you’ll have the freedom to put them into action.

eCommerce Analyst

This new venture is a big deal for us. It’s crucial that we keep on top of our online performance and use what we learn to constantly evolve and improve it.

You’ll also be a fantastic communicator, ready to liaise with a range of people, from external providers to internal auditors. In particular, you’ll strike up a good relationship with your Managers who will rely on your data to make well-informed business decisions.

eCommerce Specialist

eCommerce Specialist

eCommerce is a genuine passion for you and you can’t think of anything better than to help drive the online success of such a major retail brand.

You’ll help us deliver that competitive edge we need to keep our customer offering exciting, compelling and true to our brand and core values.

You’re ready to explore the mindset of the Aldi customer so that you truly understand what they want, how they behave online and what gets them clicking. You’ll analyse business processes, co-ordinate training and offer technical support to the whole department. Essentially, you’ll be our ‘eCommerce guru’, a central point of communication for Corporate Buying and the wider business – and we couldn’t do without you.

eCommerce Assistant

eCommerce Assistant

This is a massive new opportunity for us – and for you. Being part of such a new team, everything feels really fresh and exciting. You’ll be that safe pair of hands that provides invaluable support to the eCommerce Manager. In true Aldi style, you’ll have plenty of freedom to use your initiative and suggest ways that will make the department even more efficient.

Highly organised and able to think on your feet, you’ll manage all the correspondence and information that comes into (and goes out of) the department. You’ll also maintain an efficient filing system and co-ordinate the diaries of the Manager or Director. Everything will need to be treated with the utmost discretion and you’ll always keep any data secure. Importantly, you’ll be a great communicator who can nurture great relationships with external providers and act as the ‘go to’ person for the Corporate Buying team and the wider business.
