Maintenance

About Us

Every Aldi region will have a busy, streamlined Regional Distribution Centre at its core. But everything that happens here has a huge impact on our bottom line.

Any delays or downtime, or equipment malfunctions cause a major knock-on effect across the business.

Our Maintenance team are the ones who keep all these kind of problems at bay so we can deliver the right goods, at the right time, to our network of stores.

What kind of roles are there?

There are three key roles in Warehouse Maintenance and, to be honest, we couldn’t do without them. If anything breaks or goes wrong, we get on the batphone (well, ok, we radio across the warehouse) and our trusty team are ready to help. Could we count on you? 

Maintenance Manager

Maintenance Manager

In this senior role, you’ll report to the Logistics Director and manage a team of Maintenance Assistants. Together, you’ll ensure that our Regional Distribution Centre (RDC) and its equipment are safe, efficient and well maintained. There are plenty of personnel responsibilities too. We’d like you to supervise the team’s performance, as well as take care of the rotas and holiday schedules. You’ll also recommend potential new hires to the Logistics Director.   

Day to day, you’ll report and repair any defects you might find with the electrical or mechanical installations (or recommend the purchase of extra equipment). We’ll also need you to keep a close eye on the physical quality of the environment: is the vehicle wash and fuel area safe and well maintained? Is the paintwork clean and smart in the loading dock? You’re also a registered key holder who will need to attend any alarm call outs at the RDC. As you’d expect, this role is full of responsibility.

Maintenance Engineer

As warehouses go, our Regional Distribution Centres (RDCs) are an Engineer’s dream. Everything’s purpose built and the equipment’s first class and designed to operate to the highest standard.

You’ll be part of the team that keeps everything running smoothly. Reporting and repairing problems, you’ll use your engineering skills to keep a wide range of machinery in full working order. From refrigeration units to the racking that holds pallets, you’ll make sure our RDCs are ready to handle whatever the business needs from them.

Maintenance Assistant (Days/Nights)

Maintenance Assistant (Days/Nights)

Our warehouses need to operate in tip-top condition, so we’ll need you to help maintain the building and its equipment. The Maintenance Manager will trust you (and your colleagues) to ensure that a large variety of machinery, manual equipment and different alarms are all working perfectly.

There are all kinds of tasks you could be asked to do, so there’s plenty of variety. You’ll report and repair any defects, perform health and safety checks, repair paintwork and perhaps even carry out some welding, depending on what’s necessary. Above and beyond the day-to-day tasks, you’ll be recommending maintenance firms to your boss, or the purchase of any new equipment. It’s a really challenging, satisfying role.

Benefits

We’re good at lots of things at Aldi, but we’re particularly good at looking after our people. Yes, you’ll need to work hard and we expect you to be committed (you know, turning up on time, working hard, that sort of thing) but we’ll make every effort to show our appreciation. That’s why we offer the following benefits:

Market-leading package

Yes, the rumours are true: we pay incredibly well. But in return, we’ll ask a lot of you. That’s why we want you to feel looked after.

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.

Excellent work-life balance

We always make sure our people have a great work-life balance. Plenty of time off, fantastic benefits and some decent salaries to holiday in style.

Great opportunities to develop

At Aldi we’ll value you for what you can do, rather than where you’ve come from. So we’ll accept, recognise and often implement your ideas and recognise your contribution.
