Aldi is looking to hire 20 store colleagues in County Durham as its latest pay rise comes into force this week.

One of Britain's largest supermarkets is on the lookout for people of all levels of experience to fill roles across the region, including full and part-time positions.

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

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

Aldi says that this means they offer the best hourly rates in the sector, and they remain the only one to provide paid breaks, which is worth more than £900 a year for the average store colleague.
