I studied a double degree in Law & Commerce at university as I wasn’t 100% sure on the career path I wanted to take. I was doing seasonal work in event management overseas in the UAE when the position at Aldi presented itself to me – I certainly haven’t looked back since.
Lots of moving around and constantly meeting and building relationships with new people. Throw in some auditing, a bit of recruitment and responding to calls and emails and you’ve got an average day! There are definitely no two days that are the same as an ALDI grad.
Absolutely – there is no one specific mould that makes a good Area Manager. Any background that has encouraged critical thinking, attention to detail and relationship building will put you in great stead to take on the grad role.
The fact that I am not tied to one particular place, and that I have the freedom to move around between stores as I see fit in order to get the most out of each day.
It’s got to be Knoppers!
