Aldi UK – CSR (Ethical Sourcing)

We have been a trusted recruitment partner for Aldi UK since 2013.

Role

Corporate Responsibility Manager - Ethical Sourcing (Food)

Background

When you are the Retailer of the Year 2018, Supermarket of the Year 2018**, and Best Value for Money Supermarket 2018***, you definitely have the right people on board!

Since 2013 we have contributed to the massive success of Aldi by finding them the top talent they’ve needed to drive their business forward. We have a deep understanding of the Aldi mind-set, because after 5 years we know how they work and what they need. Our understanding is so deep, that we are their trusted recruitment partner – you can read details of our RPO by clicking here.

Corporate Responsibility roles were a growing function within the Aldi business and the three we have worked on are highly specific, with a high level of industry knowledge and a very defined skill-set required. It certainly taught us a few things too; these were some of the most interesting candidate backgrounds we have heard! Aldi’s headquarters also represent a geographical challenge – there are no other major food retailers in Warwickshire, so relocation would be a factor for the successful candidate.

We worked closely with Aldi to identify the ideal candidate for this particular role and established they would ideally bring the required knowledge from a bigger more established retailer. The candidate we found wanted to relocate to the Midlands for family reasons – she was so perfect that Aldi only took her through the process!

The candidate is still in role. Client returned to us with next role Corporate Responsibility Manager – Farming, Forestry & Fishing.
