ALDI HAS ANNOUNCED it is to recruit 1,050 new store staff in Ireland this year.

The supermarket chain said the new roles include 700 permanent positions and 350 temporary jobs to support the current trading period. 

Aldi plans to open four new stores in the coming months in Dunshaughlin in Meath, Douglas in Cork, Newbridge in Kildare and Bayside in Dublin. 

Additional stores are due to open in Cahersiveen and Killarney later this year. 

Aldi has also submitted new store planning applications in the past year, seeking permission to open new stores in Castlecomer, Roaches Street Limerick, Ballybrit, Ballyhaunis, Kanturk and Shannon.

The supermarket chain said additional staff are required to help meet ongoing customer demand across its network. 

Employment opportunities are available for positions such as store assistant, store manager and assistant store manager. 

Welcoming the announcement, Tánaiste and Minister for Employment Leo Varadkar paid tribute to all supermarket workers who he said have made a “crucial contribution” to Ireland throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
