Aldi announces 400 jobs for Goldthorpe development

A MAJOR discount retailer has announced that it is creating around 400 jobs for its new regional offices and distribution centre in Goldthorpe.

Aldi will begin its recruitment drive this month for positions including 250 warehouse staff, 100 transportation staff and 40 office-based positions.

The development, which was granted planning permission in 2008, is set to open in 2015 but Aldi is looking to fill some office and administrative roles immediately.

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.

“We’re looking to engage with the local community to identify suitable candidates who want the opportunity to work for a successful and growing retailer.”

Aldi has appointed Baxter Personnel Limited to handle the initial recruitment for the Goldthorpe site.
