THE national discount chain Aldi has launched a new apprenticeship scheme that will see it take on trainees at its stores across Cornwall.
The firm is appointing two apprentices at each of its 28 stores in the South and South West, including Truro, Newquay, Camborne and St Austell, with further vacancies expected later in 2013.
The scheme is being run in conjunction with City of Bristol College Retail Skills Academy, which is helping Aldi's application process and identifying suitable candidates.
To apply visit the website www.aldirecruitment.co.uk and applications are open until January 18 next year, with candidates expected to start during March. Apprentices are trained in all aspects of retail management within three years.
The programme offers store assistant training in year one and store management training in years two and three with a salary of £5 per hour rising to £7.15 per hour and working towards a title of deputy manager upon completion.
