Aldi is one of the fastest growing supermarkets in the World and now has over 740 stores in the UK, with a view to increasing this to 1000 stores by 2022. At the core of these stores is a busy, streamlined Distribution Centre ensuring the right goods hit the right stores in the most efficient way.

In 2015 Aldi unveiled plans to open a brand new, state of the art Distribution Centre to be based in Neats Court on the Isle of Sheppey, supporting stores across the South East of England. This investment will create 400 jobs, and we are currently looking for Warehouse Operatives to be part of this brand new site from the get-go.

As a Warehouse Operative, your role will be to achieve service levels at all times, whilst contributing to an efficient and co-operative working environment, optimum productivity and minimal inventory loss.

Your duties will include:

  • Selecting products accurately and efficiently, ensuring care in the handling and positioning of stock to minimise damage and optimise pallet height/ stability.
  • Achieving the set picking targets
  • Ensuring completed pallets are secured and clearly marked with the correct store number and placed in the correct despatch lane.
  • Operating the Mechanical Handling Equipment (MHE) in a safe and efficient manner, reporting any faults to the Maintenance Manager and ensures the trucks are put on charge supply at the end of the shift.
  • Ensuring the workplace is kept clean and tidy and ensures all spillages/ breakages are cleared immediately.

Candidates will need to demonstrate the following:

•     Be fit, healthy and able to undertake a physically demanding role

•     Be a team player and able to achieve both individual and team targets

•     Be flexible in working hours as shift length can vary dependent on stock volumes

•     Appreciation of safe working practices and its importance in the workplace

**No experience needed as full training will be given**

Applicants from varying backgrounds will be considered, so if you are hard-working, enjoy physical work and want to be part of a stable and growing company then we want to hear from you.


If successful you will be required to undertake training prior to the site opening in 2019. Training will take place at the Chelmsford Distribution Centre and transport will be provided by Aldi.

Due to the location of the Regional Distribution Centre, and the hours of this role your own transport is essential.
