Aldi launches recruitment campaign in Chatteris
A supermarket which is due to open in Chatteris shortly is looking to recruit 30 staff.
Aldi is looking to immediately hire around 30 people for its new store in Chatteris which is due to open in the New Year.
The supermarket is currently transforming the former Co-Op Store in Bridge Street, which closed earlier this year.
Aldi currently requires a store manager, three assistant store managers, five deputy store managers, 15 store assistants and five stock assistants.
The firm has announced that from February 2016, all UK employees will receive a new minimum rate of £8.40 per hour, regardless of their age.
Candidates who possess retail or people management experience are being targeted for Aldi’s managerial positions, including Store Manager, Assistant Store Manager and Deputy Store Manager roles.
Aldi is particularly looking for candidates who have experience managing teams of at least eight people for its assistant store manager roles, which start at £24,500.
Deputy store managers are expected to work closely with the store manager and assistant store manager and will have the responsibility of managing the store team in their absence. Deputy store manager roles start from 30 hours per week, with a starting salary of £9.15 per hour rising to £10.75 per hour, plus £3.95 extra per hour when managing the store.
Candidates applying for Aldi’s store assistant positions will be required to demonstrate a good level of numeracy to effectively carry out accurate and efficient till operation, and will be responsible for stock management and merchandising. Full training will be provided over a 12 week period, and store assistant roles are available from 20 to 30 hours a week with market-leading retail salaries starting at £8.15 per hour and realistic prospects for progression.
