In a nutshell, you'll help ensure only the very best products are chosen for our stores.
Quality Assurance puts in place the processes and procedures that help us make well-informed purchasing decisions. It means your day-to-day will be both interesting and varied: from designing templates that allow a panel to test a new product in a more objective way, to scientifically analysing what goes into a product. After all, only the best will do.
We do things our own way at Aldi. But whatever we're doing, we must be getting it right. With a wave of impressive sales figures behind us, we're opening new stores at lightning speed. Naturally, the products we select for these stores are central to our success. And Quality Assurance is an essential part of this winning formula.
