This is about providing invaluable support to your Director, managing the systems and processes in your area to keep things running smoothly.

You'll play a key role in ensuring an efficient and co-operative working environment. It'll involve day- to-day organisational work, data processing and analysis. Naturally, you'll need to be on the ball and well organised, with excellent attention to detail and a willingness to learn.

We do things our own way at Aldi. But whatever we're doing, we must be getting it right. With a wave of impressive sales figures behind us, we're opening new stores at lightning speed. And to keep on top of that wave, we have to do something pretty special to keep our customers coming back for more.
