Discount supermarket chain creating nearly 100 more jobs

Supermarket chain, Aldi, wants to recruit 95 more workers for the logistics arm of its business, as part of a project to transform its Goldthorpe Distribution Centre with a new IT system.

The business is looking to hire people with a background in logistics to be based at the distribution centre, in South Yorkshire.

The breakdown of roles available include 63 daytime warehouse selectors, 21 night time warehouse selectors and 11 logistics assistants.

Gavin McMurtry, warehouse operations director, said: “We live in a volatile world in which technologies develop and change rapidly, where competition increases constantly and where the needs of our customers change continuously.

“By responding to these demands with state-of-the-art automated systems, we will improve the workload for our warehouse colleagues and make routine tasks more efficient.

“The project will ensure Aldi stays on top of changes in the food retail market and will, at the same time, simplify workflows and processes, plus create jobs for the area. We’re extremely excited to implement these changes in the Goldthorpe Distribution Centre this summer.”

Kelly Stokes, HR director, added: “We are looking for individuals around the South Yorkshire area with curious minds and a passion for learning.

“It’s essential that we look to the future and take our colleagues on this journey with us, as we expect anyone at Aldi to have the drive to grow with our business.

“We’re looking forward to meeting lots of potential future candidates and accelerating the amazing progress we have set out to achieve.”
