Aldi raises store staff pay for second time this year

Aldi has announced that it is raising the rate of pay for store staff for the second time this year.

The new increases will see the hourly rate of store assistants and deputy store managers rise from £12 to £12.40. For those within the M25, there will be an uplift from £13.55 to £13.65.

Aldi said the new rate, which will be introduced in June, means it will be “the highest level of entry pay ever to be paid by a British supermarket.”

The increase takes Aldi’s investment in pay so far this year to £79 million.

Giles Hurley, chief executive of Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “We firmly believe that our colleagues are the best in the business, so it is only right that they remain the best-paid and we are committed to never being beaten on pay by any other supermarket.

“Our store operations colleagues play an integral part in our ever-increasing popularity among shoppers and our continued investment in their pay is another way to thank them for the role they play in making Aldi what it is today.”

Aldi is planning to create 5,500 new jobs in the UK this year.
