Property

It means the world to us.

From the environment to equality, see how we make sure the Aldi way is the right way.

About Us

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 corporate offices. 

So this team is constantly dealing with a variety of people, from councils and local residents to builders and architects. It’s all about developing strong relationships and creating robust project plans that fulfil our ambitious targets. 

Every day, we get involved in an array of challenges. Many of the projects we run are on fully active sites, where Aldi people are busy working. With every project there are Health & Safety, due diligence and key negotiations with the rest of the business. This is an extremely active – and proactive – team that offers exciting learning curves for everyone involved. 

What kind of roles are there?

There are two divisions within this area that focus on either Corporate or Regional Property. Corporate specialises in anything to do with acquisitions, equipment and construction of our Distribution Centres. This includes any extensions at our Head Office in Atherstone, any related projects such as new fridges or freezers, together with Group Acquisitions. We might also spot opportunities to work with other companies to purchase land, and look after enhanced and accelerated capital allowance claims.

Regional Property drive through acquisitions and new builds, and look after any improvements made to existing stores within particular regions – whether that’s an extension to a car park, to the surrounding landscape, the rollout of anything new (such as refrigeration), as well as general building and maintenance, or tenant and landlord issues. We work with a range of quality contractors – from Architects to Quantity Surveyors and Site Managers - so there’s a lot of knowledge out on site and we always choose people with the same work ethic as us.

These are the kind of roles to expect in each area. Would one suit you?

  • Regional Property Director
  • Corporate Property Manager
  • Regional Property Manager
  • Regional Property Assistant
Regional Property Director

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.
