About us:
In 1994, we launched our very first Lidl GB store - and we haven't stopped growing since. Over 25 years later, our 31,000+ talented colleagues, working across over 960 stores and 14 warehouses, deliver the highest quality products to millions of customers, all over the UK.
We believe that as we get bigger and better, our people should too. To us, that means giving them every opportunity to flourish and thrive. It means helping them keep busy doing the things they love to do. And, last but not least, it means providing them with whatever they need to keep moving forward. After all, it’s our people who got us to where we are today – and will get us to where we’re going tomorrow too. From store to warehouse to head office, we’re working together with our employees to take our business to extraordinary places.
A career a Lidl less ordinary.
Working here is a unique experience. No matter whether you join us in one of our stores or warehouses, or become part of our head office or regional office teams, you’ll find life at Lidl moves fast.

We believe that by giving our people everything they need to make what we do better, we’re creating a place, and a pace, that helps everyone have a career they’ll enjoy.
