Aldi Australia has been named the top employer for graduates looking for a career in retail and fast moving consumer goods at the GradConnection Top 100 Awards.

The supermarket was also ranked 5th out of 100 employers in the Most Popular Graduate Employer category.

Aldi said over the past 12 months it has seen a significant jump in soon-to-be graduates applying for its 18-month graduate program.

“Aldi is changing the landscape of the retail sector in Australia, driving down prices for consumers while providing a working environment that offers a high level of career development and employee satisfaction,” and Aldi spokesperson said.

Those who enter Aldi’s graduate program undertake training which rotates them through all aspects of the business. At the end of the 18-month program they take on the role of an area manager. Graduate salary packages are AUD $85, 000 annually accompanied by a company car.

Aldi accepts graduates from all disciplines including law, accounting and fine arts.

The success in the GradConnection Top 100 Awards follows on from Aldi’s success in the 2016 Australian Retailers Association’s Retail Awards where the supermarket was awarded runner-up Retailer Employer.
