Aldi to pay minimum of £11 an hour to all store assistants

Aldi is to raise its store assistants’ starting pay to £11 an hour nationally and to £12.45 within the M25.

Aldi will also be increasing the rates of pay for thousands of logistics workers by introducing starting salaries of at least £10.90, in line with the Real Living Wage.

Giles Hurley, chief executive of Aldi UK and Ireland, said: “Just as we promise Aldi customers that we will always offer the lowest grocery prices in Britain, we are committed to being the highest-paying supermarket for our colleagues. We are incredibly proud of every single member of Team Aldi and are pleased to become the first UK supermarket to pay a minimum of £11 per hour to all Store Assistants, exceeding the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended Real Living Wage.”

Aldi’s store expansion plans are set to create over 6,000 new jobs this year to add to the 4,500 permanent roles introduced in 2021.
