Corporate Buying Assistant

Posted 3 December by Aldi

Working closely with your Buying Director, you'll make sure that they have everything they need to negotiate the very best deals.

Our buying teams – if it's possible – have to move even quicker than the rest of the business. And they have to keep ahead of our customers too: second-guessing what they want and need before they do. You'll get involved in every aspect of the buying lifecycle, from putting together tender documents and crunching numbers, to preparing samples and reviewing market data. The proposals start with you.

We do things our own way at Aldi. But whatever we're doing, we must be getting it right. With a wave of impressive sales figures behind us, we're opening new stores at lightning speed. And to keep on top of that wave, our buying teams have to do something pretty special to keep our customers coming back for more.


We now have an exciting opportunity for a Buying Assistant to join our busy Produce team within our Corporate Buying Department.
