ALDI creates twelve new jobs in Donegal

ALDI has announced the creation of 12 new jobs in Donegal as part of a new national recruitment drive.

The retailer also announced their commitment to becoming the first supermarket to adopt the new recommended living wage.

The retailer, which currently employs over 4,650 people and operates a network of 155 stores across the country, are to create more than 360 new jobs across Ireland, due to the on-going expansion of the ALDI store network.


ALDI has also committed to becoming the first supermarket to adopt the new recommended living wage on February 1 – increasing its minimum pay to €13.85 per hour.

“We are continuing to reinvest in Ireland by creating and maintaining jobs throughout the country and adopting the minimum wage for colleagues.

“We have seen continued strong demand in the market for the unbeatable value that ALDI offers,” said Niall O’Connor, Group Managing Director, ALDI.

The retailer has made this promise on the back of a survey commissioned by ALDI that was published earlier this week.

The survey highlighted that 77 per cent of the population have financial worries due to the on-going cost-of-living crisis.

The survey also found the cost-of-living crisis is making 30 per cent of people ‘fearful or anxious’ about the future.

It also showed that more than 72 per cent of people are conscious of the price of goods and that almost half, 47 per cent, are seeking value for every cent they spend.
