Budget supermarket chain Aldi is looking to recruit 10 apprentices for its stores across Suffolk.

The retailer is looking for between one and three apprentices per store for its shops in Ipswich, Sudbury, Bury St Edmunds, Haverhill and Brandon.

It is urging students to consider an apprenticeship as an option amid the joy and heartache of receiving their GCSE results.

It is part of a national bid to recruit 650 apprentices.

Aldi store apprentices are trained in all aspects of retail management during the three-year course.

The scheme offers store assistant training in year one and store management training in years two and three, with a salary of £5.30 per hour rising to £7.63.

Those who successfully complete the apprenticeship scheme will be offered a deputy manager position, and can progress onto assistant store manager with a salary of £24,500 – or even be fast-tracked to store manager if they excel during training.

“With increasing tuition fees making it harder for young people to attend university, students are seeing the benefits of the chance to earn while they learn, while gaining on-the-job experience.
