Supermarket chain Aldi said it is to create around 400 jobs at its new 856,000 sq ft regional base in Goldthorpe, South Yorkshire which is expected to open in 2015.
The German firm said it was starting to recruit staff this month. It has said it wants 250 warehouse workers, 100 for transportation roles and 40 for office jobs.
Liam Rafferty, financial and administration director at Aldi, said: “The regional distribution centre at Goldthorpe will provide a hub for Aldi’s growing portfolio of stores across South and West Yorkshire, Lincolnshire and Derbyshire.”
The discount supermarket chain recently reported £157.9 million of UK pre-tax profits for 2012, a rise of 123.9 per cent and its market share by 3.2 per cent. In October, the company opened its 500th store in the UK.
