What you will do in your working day

  • We don't hang around at Aldi and neither will you. So from the moment you start, you'll be straight to it, signing your contracts, meeting your Assessor and completing all the paperwork to enroll onto your qualification.
  • Focusing on your Level 2 Supply Chain Operative qualification, you'll get to grips with our warehouse operation, complete theory work and have regular reviews with your Assessor. 
  • Pick, Wrap and Pack! You'll learn the incredibly important job of picking goods that are ready for dispatch. You'll then wrap and pack them, ensuring they end up where they're supposed to be. In perfect condition. 
  • Stock levels are the lifeblood of retail. Too much, and you'll waste a lot. Too little, and our customers won't find what they need. Which is why we'll show you how to do inventory checks, and stay on top of stock levels and records. 
  • You'll learn how to operate equipment which could be mobile or fixed. It's not just about knowing what bit of kit to use, but how to operate it safely and pack it away when you're done. 

The training you will be getting

  • Earn while you Learn! You'll be completing your Level 2 Supply Chain Operative qualification whilst carrying out your daily duties. 
  • You'll learn on the job, allowing you to put your theory based learning into practice. 
  • You'll learn how to use special warehouse equipment to move goods and we'll teach you how to lift, transfer and settle goods to perfection (and safely, of course). 
  • Every three months, you'll meet up with your Section Leader, Warehouse Manager and Assesor. This is just to make sure you're on track and performing well. 
  • On top of Assessor visits and Quarterly Reviews, you'll also have Progress Reviews. Less formal than a Quarterly Review, they're there to give you constant feedback about how you're doing. 
  • Graduation is just the start of your amazing Aldi career. You'll now be given the chance to move into a permanent position within the team - where you'll beging to dicsover even more exciting opportunities. 

What to expect at the end of your apprenticeship

  • Once Apprentices have completed their Level 2 programme they will have the opportunity to move onto a permanent Warehouse Operations Assistant contract. Further training opportunities are available.
