The best careers come in Lidl packages. It’s as simple as that! Every year we’re growing bigger and better and the reason for our success is our people.
After all, they’re the ones who keep the smiles on our customers’ faces, the products on the shelves and everything running smoothly behind the scenes. That’s why we give them everything they need to keep doing what they do best.
So, read on to find out five key benefits of working at Lidl.
1. A benefits package that ticks all of the boxes
To reward their efforts, we offer an excellent package which includes a competitive salary, a generous holiday entitlement and a contributory pension scheme.
That’s not all. Andrew Harvey, Team Manager, says, “It’s phenomenal how people-focused the company is, with the rewards and the amount of training they put in.”
We make sure we look after your health and wellbeing too. We’re committed to having policies and processes in place that look after the many aspects of your life to help you achieve that perfect work-life balance.
“I’m a Magistrate in my personal life. I’m able to balance that and my current role, so I feel very lucky. I have a team that’s there 24 hours a day, but they don’t rely on me being available 24 hours a day. I’m very happy with that.” says Nicola Cosgrove – Team Manager (Selection and Goods Out).
2. Much more rewarding than anywhere else
Best of all, besides our many perks, we’re proud to pay above market rate. We introduced the living wage long before our competitors.
Along with training and development opportunities to see you grow personally and professionally, it all adds up to a fantastic career.
“It works perfectly for me. I have a healthy life. I come to work, I go home, go to the gym and I still get my evening with my missus. It’s normal life but suits me 100%.” Says Jack Cooknell – Warehouse Operative (Goods Out, Recycling).
We have a lot to be proud of at Lidl. Our achievements, our growth, our unwavering commitment to quality. In a recent employee survey, our employees told us what they think are the best things about working for Lidl. Some of the highlights included team culture, competitive salaries, loyalty and job security. That makes us very proud too.
3. A culture that brings out the best in you
Every employee here is an important piece in the Lidl puzzle and everyone’s contribution is valued. We foster a culture of respect, one that encourages employees to be themselves, and work together to be even better.
Jack Cooknell, Warehouse Operative (Goods Out, Recycling) tells us, “I feel proud every day here. No matter how big the challenge is, we all work together as a team and overcome whatever hits us.”
4. A future that’s getting bigger
With big plans for the future unfolding, it’s an ethos that’s felt right across the business.
“I think the biggest one for me is that we’re growing at a rate of knots. We’ve just confirmed plans for more warehouses in the UK and we’ve currently got 13. With that comes enormous opportunities to grow professionally too.” Nick Brookes, Warehouse Team Manager, Selection.
5. We’re serious about having fun at Lidl
As an employer we have a simple philosophy – we keep our employees happy, our employees keep our customers happy, and our business continues to grow and flourish. Everybody wins!
“I love working with the people here. It’s fun. We work hard, but we have lots of jokes” says Alexandra Keironoska – Warehouse Operative – Selection.
