What it takes to be an Executive Manager in Store Operations (aka Area Manager)

At ALDI, we do things differently. To be an Executive Manager in Store Operations you don’t need years of retail experience. You will need a passion for leading and developing people, an unwavering focus on results and a willingness to learn. We’ll teach you the business from the ground up. After a year of training, you’ll be responsible for 3-5 multi-million dollar stores. You’ll work with your Store Managers to recruit, train and develop all store staff, set targets and continually improve the quality and efficiency of your stores. It’s a fantastic opportunity to utilise the interpersonal skills, commercial awareness, and management abilities you’ve developed in previous roles and transfer them to a retail environment. Never thought of retail as a career? At ALDI, it can be!

It’s about taking personal responsibility. If you work hard, gain the respect of others and be resilient, nothing can hold you back from progressing in this business
