What University did you study at?
What University programme did you study?
Exercise and Sports Sciences where I was awarded 1st class honours.
Did you follow a Graduate Scheme?
Yes – Aldi Graduate programme It’s a gruelling 12 month programme learning how to run stores and manage people. After the year of training, I took on the responsibility of three of my very own stores. I managed 3 direct reports and almost 100 personnel reports. I ran that area in South East Wales for 2 years before being 1 of 9 Area Managers in the U.K selected to establish a new project area manager role overseeing recruitment, training and development across the 64 stores within my Region. During that time, I also oversaw the National Apprenticeship programme. Following a 12 month secondment to that role, I have since returned to managing a 4 store area in the extended Cardiff area. I have 4 direct reports and almost 120 personnel responsibilities. I recently opened the new flagship store in Culverhouse Cross which was very exciting. No two days are the same in my role and I thoroughly enjoy my work.
