The supermarket’s new roles are being filled in preparation for Christmas

Budget supermarket Aldi is creating more than 500 new jobs in Yorkshire, ready for the expected influx of Christmas shoppers.

Overall, the supermarket has announced it will be creating more than 2,000 jobs across the country between now and Christmas – and nearly 600 are going to be in stores around Leeds.

Places where Aldi is looking to hire include neighbouring towns of Bradford, Doncaster, Hull, and York.

However, it’s also been reported that Aldi has eyes on new sites in West Park and Otley, Pudsey, Sowerby Bridge, Heckmondwike, Wakefield, Batley, Halifax, Bradford and Mirfield amongst others – so positions may come up closer to home too.

The chain currently has more than 920 stores dotted across the UK and employs around 38,000 people in various roles.

Positions are not just available in sales, but also in administrative and managerial roles with the supermarket offering a decent range of employment options in the region.

The supermarket has 80 spaces for new graduates on its graduate scheme, and they’re also currently recruiting for more than 900 positions at their 13 Regional Distribution Centres which are located across the UK.

And at the supermarkets head office in Warwickshire, there’s a further 175 vacancies up for grabs.

Kelly Stokes, Recruitment Director at Aldi UK, said: “As we continue to grow, we’re looking for ambitious and hard-working individuals to join our team at stores and distribution centres across Yorkshire.

“There’s something here for everyone, from new starters looking to take their first step on the career ladder to more experienced team managers seeking a new challenge.

“Our amazing colleagues are central to everything we do at Aldi and remain one of the key factors in our success. We’re looking forward to welcoming our new recruits to the team.”
