Alongside the Quality Control Leader, you'll make sure our short-life products are meticulously checked - stepping in, and up, when needed.
You'll be out on the floor with the team, making sure our food products are in perfect condition. Because nothing less will do. Your attention to detail and passion for our products is beyond compare. And your stamina for precision checking is impressive. That's why you're a Deputy.
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. But that doesn't mean our standards can waver. That's what Quality Control is all about.
Out in the warehouse, we have a busy team of Quality Control Assistants checking our short-life products before they leave for our stores. Whenever the QC Leader is called out, for example to a supplier or to a meeting with the Trading Director, you’ll step in to take the reins.
An energetic leader, you’ll offer your expertise to keep things moving smoothly. A real people person, you’ll keep the team happy and motivated, ensuring that our products comply with our standards. Attention to detail is a must – after all, you’re passionate about our produce and what we’re trying to achieve for our customers.
