Working in Supply Chain Management

So what’s Supply Chain Management? Well, we’re responsible for moving all Aldi products from our suppliers (from around the world) into our Regional Distribution Centres. It’s a really important part of the business, and we’re always looking to make it as cost-effective and efficient as possible. And the more we grow, the more important Supply Chain Management is. So, we’ve developed a network of consolidation centres outside our distribution centres. These work closely with suppliers to store stock for the regions to keep up with the demand – which we’ll need with the big plans we’re hatching.

This department has transformed over the last few years. The team is made up of a number of Directors, Managers and Assistants, all working together in a harmonious, highly effective team. Which role would suit you?

Supply Chain Manager

As a senior member of the team, you’ll make sure that Aldi products get from the suppliers through to our distribution sites across the UK. It’s about looking at the strategy to make sure that every stage of the supply chain (right back to the source) works effectively. It’s very fast-paced and there’s plenty of variety: you could be dealing with a supplier in Spain one week and Slough the next.

The way we work as a business is different to other Logistics operations. And that’s something you’ll particularly notice as a Manager. You’ll actually own an area and be given the autonomy to drive that individual strategy. Importantly, you’ll be responsible for developing and motivating a team of Assistants. What’s more, being an Aldi manager, you’ll understand that you need to give your team plenty of freedom too. So you’ll trust your Assistants in the decisions they make and the way they run their areas.

This is a high-profile, demanding role, but if you’re ready to apply yourself and keep improving, it will be hugely rewarding too.

Supply Chain Assistant

Supporting the team, you’ll make sure they have everything they need to keep our stores supplied and our business running smoothly. From checking invoices and keeping important documents secure, to organising filing and backing up information, you’ll make sure everything’s well organised. 

Because this is Aldi, the day-to-day responsibility for an entire area (such as a consolidation site), will fall to you. Managers won’t interfere – they’ll trust you to make the right decisions. That’s a lot to take on and it can be demanding. But for the right people, it’s a fantastic place to work.
