This is your chance to get a real taste of retail, as you're exposed to every facet of our business over the 12 months of your placement.
The National IT department is at the very heart of Aldi. We're made up of small high-performing teams, and you can expect plenty of exposure plus hands-on experience of an IT department within a global company. Typically, you could join us as part of a technical team supporting the live business, part of a large scale project team or even have responsibility for a smaller scale project by yourself.
Many of the opportunities available will depend on what's going on with the business at the time. And, trust us, there's always plenty going on at Aldi - our business is constantly growing and developing. Yes, the placement can be daunting. But it can also be a fantastic opportunity to learn and be inspired by a company that's so different to all the others.
