Kaufland kicks off 2018 with further Aus business expansion
German discount supermarket Kaufland has begun the new year expanding its Australian business by advertising for several new employees.
Kaufland is currently advertising seven new Australian positions on its website with roles including property developers, architectural planning manager, building services engineer and head of business intelligence.
The roles are in various locations including Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane.
Kaufland has not yet announced store numbers or locations for Australia but purchased its first Australian property in the outskirts of Adelaide’s CBD in October 2017.
At the time of the purchase, Kaufland told Australian Food News that the purchase was “an important step on the way to entering the Australian market.”
Kaufland is owned by the Schwarz Group, a privately-operated German company which also owns discount German supermarket chain, Lidl.
The company is headquartered in Neckarsulm, Germany and the first Kaufland store was opened in Neckarsulm in 1984. It describes itself as the world’s fourth largest retailer and stocks up to 60, 000 product lines.
Kaufland currently has more than 1, 230 stores across Germany, the Czech Republic, Poland, Bulgaria, Croatia, Romania and Slovakia. It employs approximately 150, 000 employees.
Alongside the usual supermarket staples and alcohol, Kaufland also sells general goods such as electronics, describing itself as a “hypermarket”. It has been compared to Australian chains like Woolworths’ Big W and Wesfarmers K-mart.
