Aldi UK To Hike Pay And Recruit 3,800 More Workers

The British arm of discount supermarket Aldi will recruit more than 3,800 store level positions this year and increase pay as part of its drive to hire the best staff for its expansion across the country.

Britain's fifth-largest supermarket said its minimum hourly rate would rise on February 1 to £9.40 (€11.03) from a previous £9.10 (€10.68), while the rate for workers inside the M25, which circles London ,will rise to £10.90 (€12.79) from £10.55 (€12.38).

Aldi, which currently trades from 874 stores, said it remains on track to achieve its long-term target of 1,200 UK stores by 2025.

“We have the most efficient and productive workforce, and this is why they earn the highest rates of pay in the grocery sector," commented Giles Hurley, Aldi UK chief executive.
