If you’re on the hunt for a new role – or career entirely – you might want to take a look at Aldi’s recruitment website, which has some incredibly generous opportunities.
The discounter is currently on the look out for new area managers with a starting salary of more than £44,000 a year, rising to £76,000 after five years.
It’s after those with a keen interest in retail management – and is willing to pay thousands for your commitment.
Once qualified, you will manage and maintain several branches in your area – which can be anywhere in the UK.
The 12-month programme offers extensive training, looking after a store for three weeks after the first quarter of the year where you will plan the rota, manage orders and indeed your own team.
As part of the role you will be expected to meet sales targets and liaise with the wider business to carry out new initiatives. You may even end up travelling to Europe, the US or Australia to work in stores there.
The job ad said: “You’ve probably heard a lot about the Area Manager Programme by now – that we give our graduates a fantastic package (including an Audi A4 or a BMW 3 series) and that it’s ‘really hard work’. These are true.
“But there’s so much more. We’re also a responsible employer who thrives on giving graduates unparalleled exposure, training and support.
“Throughout the year, you’ll learn the ins and outs of store life, before discovering what it takes to lead your own Area.”
It said it could be the start of an exciting career where you can work your way into the senior ranks of Aldi.
Candidates need to be “hardworking, eager to learn and driven” as the role is fast-paced and varied.
You also need to have a 2:1 degree in any subject – although there are entry routes based on experience too.
After the year is up, you will be in charge of your own area of three to four stores.
The starting salary is £44,000, which then rises to a whopping £76,495 after five years.
When you apply for the programme, you will be asked to select your first and second choice regions.
