The supermarket chain Aldi is looking to recruit seven young people to take on as apprentices at seven of its outlets in Norfolk and Suffolk, including its Gaywood store.

Applications to join the Aldi Apprenticeship Scheme opened on Monday, at the start of National Apprenticeship Week, and will close on Friday, September 11.

Aldi store apprentices will receive training on all aspects of retail management during a three-year course.

In the first year, the scheme offers store assistant training, followed by store management training in the second and third years. The salary will start at £5.30 an hour rising to £7.63.

Successful apprentices will be offered a deputy store manager position after completing the course and the most successful apprentices can progress onto the position of assistant store manager, with a starting salary of £24,500.

In addition, apprentices will achieve a retail apprenticeship Level 3 qualification.

Applications for the scheme should be submitted through Aldi’s recruitment website www.aldirecruitment.co.uk and the successful candidates will be asked to attend a group interview followed by an “Aldi experience” at a local store.

Ruth Doyle, regional managing director at Aldi, said: “The Aldi Apprentice Scheme will deliver opportunities for committed and resourceful young people nationwide.

“Successful candidates will be joining one of the most dynamic and fast-growing retailers in the UK, with a proven track record in developing its staff. Aldi’s apprentices are given real responsibility from day one.”
