Aldi has confirmed that it would welcome applications from Ukrainian refugees for its 8,000 job vacancies.
The announcement follows news that M&S, Asos and Lush have joined a group of 45 companies that have told the government they have up to 10,000 jobs available for people fleeing the Ukraine due to the Russian invasion.
Aldi has over 950 stores, where most of the roles are available, and 11 regional distribution centres serving all parts of the UK.
The supermarket said the vacancies span a wide range of roles including assistant store manager, store assistant, stock assistant, selector, logistics assistant and a range of office-based administration roles.
Aldi is in discussions with the government to find the best way to secure employment for refugees fleeing the war in Ukraine.
Kelly Stokes, recruitment director, at Aldi UK said: “We stand by the people of Ukraine and want to offer employment opportunities for those seeking refuge in the UK. By working with the government, partners and other employers, we hope to help as many people as possible and provide much needed stability and security in their lives.”
