About Us

Aldi stores are springing up all over the country. In fact, we’re now one of the UK’s fastest-growing supermarkets. But while it’s always nice to see queues of vehicles coming out of the car park, we also know that a silky smooth logistics strategy is more essential than ever.

So what can you expect from the Logistics arm of our business? Market-leading pay, first-class vehicles, shiny new Regional Distribution Centres (RDCs) and an unusual culture of recognition, trust and clarity. Everyone knows what’s expected of them. They feel completely respected, listened to and integral to the business.

Our Managers feel empowered to make their own decisions. Our Drivers can get their hands on the latest kit. Our Selectors can see exactly how they fit into the bigger picture and are loving their role. (They’ve even worked past the end of their shift before ‘without realising’.) The fact is, people might join us for the generous pay or the quality equipment – but they stay for an awful lot more.

A lot can happen in 24 hours

What kind of roles are there

Aldi have nine Regional Head Offices across the UK and two in Ireland. Within each one there is a Regional Distribution Centre, made up of three key areas: Transport, Warehouse and Maintenance. These work together to provide our stores with a world-class service.

  

                

 

Who we're looking for

Not just anyone can walk into one of our Regional Distribution Centres and get to work. You need to love getting both the big and little jobs done and have a ‘get on with it’ attitude that makes everything run beautifully. If you do, we’re sure you’ll find the perfect home for your fabulous skills. But whichever area you join, we will say this: there is an ‘Aldi type’.

We really care about what we do and we’d go to the ends of the earth to get it done (well, maybe not the end – but you know what we mean). So if you want take things easy and like to make a single job last all day, we’re probably not for you. But if you’re ready to make brave decisions, support people around you and get a kick out of being part of a world-class logistics operation, our doors are wide open.

Maintenance >

We’re a business that tries hard to get everything absolutely perfect. And we see you as the icing on our cake. You’ll join the team who keep everything working beautifully so we can create a world-class operation for our customers. You enjoy completing tasks, you like helping the team out and you motivate everyone with your ‘get on with it’ attitude.

Quality Control >

You’ll find an abundance of dedicated perfectionists in this area. The kind of people who share our passion for the very strict criteria that Aldi products must live up to. (In fact, quality is so important that we have a zero tolerance policy.) Whichever role you’re in, it’s going to be challenging, but extremely rewarding.

Transport >

You’re on a mission to get our products exactly where they should be, right on time. But you’re also a problem-solver. Whether you’re a Driver faced with an overcrowded car park or a Section Leader experiencing a huge volume of stock over Christmas, you just make it work. We trust you to make good decisions because you’re the one doing the role.

Warehouse >

You’ll need a strong work ethic. No one would dream of sitting in the corner with a cup of tea. It’s fast-paced, with very high standards of professionalism and efficiency. While you take personal pride in every task, you also see the value in helping everyone else out.

Did you know... every year we travel the equivalent of 2,584,400 laps of the Olympic track to deliver products into Aldi depots. If Usain Bolt could run continuously at his 100m speed, he would be running non-stop for 192 years.

Did you know... we've been working really hard at reducing our company carbon footprint? In fact, we were awarded a 'Carbon Trust' accreditation for showing a 27% reduction.

Where are we?

There are new stores (and store extensions) opening all the time. But right now, the picture looks something like this. The UK’s divided up into 10 Aldi regions. Each region has its own Head Office led by a Managing Director, a group of Directors and our wonderful team of Administrators. Importantly, each region also has its own Regional Distribution Centre (or RDC) which takes care of the flow of goods, ensuring that our customers get all their favourite things on time.

 

A detailed map of our UK regions and also our international presence can be found on the 'About us' page.
