Supermarket Chain Set To Create 400 New Jobs

Thursday December 5 2013

SUPERMARKET chain Aldi said it is to create around 400 jobs at its new regional base.

The new site at Goldthorpe will incorporate a distribution centre and regional offices and is expected to open in 2015.

The German firm said it was starting to recruit staff this month.

The discount supermarket chain recently reported £157.9million of UK pre-tax profits for 2012, a rise of 124 per cent.

In October, the company opened its 500th store in the UK.

Liam Rafferty, financial and administration director at Aldi, said: "The regional distribution centre at Goldthorpe will provide a hub for Aldi's growing portfolio of stores across South and West Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire."

Businesses get funding from government to take on unemployed people, even if it's on temp contracts. ASOS and Amazon do exactly the same

To start off, the wages will be a lot better than Asos , and you are looking towards the end of 2014 for any jobs coming up.

Apparently you need to apply online, certainly do not have any application forms at Wath Upon Dearne store where I work!

This is great news - to those whinging about romas etc you are bloody idiots, granted the jobs market is tough there are jobs to be had, you'd expect the same treatment you got here if you went to another country you hypocrites.

well dont to the government..lol.what a loada tosh. you mean well done to the tory bastards for dangling carrots offering people of barnsley a pittance to work. with little work. i.e working the workers when they want them. we need regular work. not agency work. work that pays well. so people can afford to have holidays. we need to work to live. not live to work.!!!. asos and the likes are making millions. and no doubt the theif who owns the place will be made a knight at some point. shame on the govt i say.
