Deputy Store Manager

Being an Aldi Deputy Store Manager

Organised. Hardworking. Responsible. Incredibly friendly. That’s you. Someone who can work closely with the Store Manager and Assistant Store Manager – and deputise when they’re away. You’ll be eager to learn with the enthusiasm to ensure we have a happy team, even happier customers and an efficient, high-quality store. Prove yourself, and there’s every chance to progress to Assistant Store Manager.

Meet our Deputy Store Managers

Being a Deputy Store Manager is incredibly varied. One day, you could be serving customers or receiving deliveries; while the next day you could be taking charge of the whole store. So as you can imagine, our Deputy Store Managers are great people to ask about life at Aldi. Watch their videos to hear what they have to say. 


Market leading package

As an Aldi Deputy Store Manager, you’ll earn £10.10 rising to £11.41 per hour, plus an additional £4.00 per hour while running the store. If you’re in London, you’ll get £11.55 rising to £11.89 per hour.

Amazing work-life balance

Your usual contracted hours will be around 25 hours per week, but can vary from 15-35. And to keep you refreshed for the dynamic, fast-paced Aldi life, you’ll get 28 days paid holiday.


We’re also committed to looking after you. Which is why you’ll get sick pay, long service awards, and maternity, paternity and adoption leave after 2 years.

Health & lifestyle

Alongside the great pay and benefits, you can also join our Health Cash Plan, and take advantage of some fantastic lifestyle perks, such as gym membership discounts, discounted cinema tickets and money off holidays.

Learning from the best

On top of the full training programme when you first join, you’ll get some of the best training and development in the retail world throughout your Aldi career.

Great working environment

With so many amazing developments, Aldi stores keep getting better and better. Not only that, you’ll help make sure it’s a place where you and your team can do great things and express your ideas.

Future opportunities

We value you for what you can do, rather than where you’ve come from. So we’ll recognise your contributions and often implement your ideas. If you really excel, you could progress to Assistant Store Manager, or even move over to become a Deputy Store Manager Trainer.
