BRITAIN'S fourth-largest supermarket is on the lookout for new staff to fill roles across Hampshire.

Aldi is looking to hire 65 store colleagues in Hampshire as its latest pay rise comes into force this week, with people of all levels of experience invited to apply for several full and part-time positions now on offer.

The recruitment push comes as Aldi increases hourly pay rates for all its store colleagues across the UK from this week. 

The new pay increases will see the hourly rate of store assistants rise nationally from £12.00 to £12.40, and from £13.55 to £13.65 for those within the M25.

This marks the second pay increase for Aldi store colleagues this year and takes the supermarket’s investment in pay this year to £79m.

The supermarket also remains the only one to provide paid breaks, which is worth more than £900 a year for the average store colleague.
