The company which has over 870 stores in the UK has announced the news saying the rise comes as a result of their ongoing success.
Aldi the move means that the company has maintained its position as the UK’s highest-paying supermarket.
Staff at the Beverley store will see their pay increased by 30p to £9.40 for each hour worked. While those with three years services will move to an hourly rate of £10.41.
Giles Hurley, Chief Executive Officer for Aldi UK, said;
“The dedication and commitment that our store colleagues deliver every day when serving our customers underpin our success.”
“We have the most efficient and productive workforce, and this is why they earn the highest rates of pay in the grocery sector.”
All store colleagues at the UK’s fifth-largest supermarket will earn a minimum hourly rate of £9.40 nationally while those working within the M25 will be paid £10.90.
Staff will see the increase in their pay packets from the 1 February. They previously earned a minimum of £9.10 and £10.55 per hour respectively.
Aldi Looking To Recruit The Very Best Retail Staff In 2020
Aldi’s new rates exceed the Living Wage Foundation’s recommended real living wage rates of £9.30 per hour nationally and £10.75 per hour inside the M25.
The value of this pay increase is boosted in real terms. This is as a result of the fact that Aldi is one of the few supermarkets to still pay colleagues for breaks.
Aldi, which currently has 874 stores, is recruiting for over 3,800 store-level positions this year and remains on track to achieve its long-term target of 1,200 UK stores by 2025.
Giles Hurley added;
“We want to recruit the best people in retail, invest in their training and provide them with the opportunity to develop their careers with Aldi as our business grows.”
The supermarket’s current share of the UK grocery market is 7.8%. This is an increase of 0.4% during the last 12 months.
