Aldi Stores (Ireland) Ltd.
Aldi opened its first store in Ireland in 1999, and now have over 120 stores in Ireland with over 8000 stores worldwide. We are one of Ireland’s fastest growing grocery food retailers with ambitious plans to open many more stores across Ireland. Our business model is built on creating efficiencies at every level – from store construction, to distribution, to the products we stock. Our success shows we are as much a philosophy as we are a grocery store. Every aspect of our operations has been rethought and reinvented to maximise the quality of our products and savings of our customers. As a result, we need to recruit candidates of the highest calibre. The things that make Aldi a great retailer also make us a great employer. Clarity features throughout our business: everyone knows what is expected of them. We continuously work to ensure our products are both great value and high quality, and we’re delighted with the results -but don’t just take our word for it! Aldi are one of the most awarded retailers at the Irish Quality Food Awards, the Great Taste Awards and the Blás na hEireann awards.

Store Assistant

You’re a bundle of enthusiasm and positivity. Someone who absolutely loves rolling their sleeves up to keep the store running as efficiently as possible. A naturally friendly colleague who loves smiling at customers to make their day.  A queue of customers at the till? You’ll jump on a different till and halve their waiting time. A pallet of bananas waiting in the stockroom? You’ll put them out in the store, rather than wait for someone else to do it. You’re thoughtful, flexible and full of initiative.


You’ll need to be comfortable with numbers, but other than that this is about having a friendly personality, a ‘get on with it’ kind of attitude and a passion for the business
