Six deputy store managers and 20 store assistants are needed for the Barnfield Drive supermarket.

All of Aldi’s UK employees receive a minimum rate of £8.53 per hour regardless of their age and full training will be provided for store assistant roles over a four week period.

Graham Hetherington, Aldi regional managing director, said: “Our new store brings a significant number of employment opportunities for people across Chichester, and we would encourage anyone interested in a rewarding career with us to apply on our recruitment website.

“We are looking to attract applicants from a diverse range of backgrounds who can demonstrate relevant experience, and the ability to thrive in a fast-paced environment.”

Store assistant candidates should have strong numerical skills to carry out responsibilities such as accurate and efficient till operation, stock management and merchandising.

Roles are available from 15 to 30 hours a week, with salaries starting at £8.53 per hour, rising to £10.15 per hour, and a realistic prospect of progression.

The supermarket is also seeking people with management experience for its deputy store manager positions.
