ALDI is looking to hire 47 people in Wales – and they are offering up to £46,000.

And it comes when the jobs market has never been more competitive.

The financial ruin coronavirus has inflicted has devastated the economy, with many companies having to cut jobs and very few hiring.

But one of Britain’s biggest supermarkets is bucking the trend and looking for new recruits.

Among the stores looking to fill vacancies in Gwent is Cwmbran and Spytty Road in Newport.

There are four vacancies for each store.

Aldi says they are looking for people of all levels of experience to fill roles; from stock assistant to assistant store manager.

“Our amazing colleagues are central to everything we do at Aldi and remain one of the key factors in our success, and we’re looking forward to expanding our team to provide an even better in-store experience for our customers.”
