Supply Chain Assistant Team Manager Trainee Programme for the West


This isn’t only seeing how a global business works. This is making your mark on its future. Our Regional Supply Chain Departments are looking for proactive, adaptable and self-motivated Trainee Managers to join their growing team on a two year programme. We want to make sure you have all the training you need so we’ll start by sending you on an intensive structured 6-12 months training programme where you will experience our Regional Distribution Centres, our stores and Head Office.

For the training you could be based at any one of our sites in the West so you would need to be flexible on location. Please note that our Regional Distribution centres in the West are based in Exeter, Avonmouth and Bridgend.

What you'll do

Your first year is all about understanding how Supply Chain works. You’ll have structured hands on training in our regional distribution centres familiarising yourself with our network of over 800 stores. You’ll get to see all areas of Supply Chain including stock management; write off management, promotional control, availability management and stock holding management. You’ll also learn about the role warehouses play in our wider business, as you spend time in-store and other key areas. 

What you'll need

  • The ability to communicate confidently and effectively across all levels of the business
  • Outstanding organisation and multi-tasking skills to prioritise conflicting deadlines
  • Natural leadership and get the best out of everyone
  • An adaptable communication style to get your message across to anyone
  • Self-motivation and determination to succeed in a fast-paced, challenging environment
  • The desire to learn, develop and challenge yourself in a demanding and dynamic environment
  • Experience in supply chain is beneficial
  • A full UK/EU driving licence
  • To be legally entitled to work in the UK on a full time, permanent basis
  • The ability to travel to various UK sites for initial training during your first year

What you'll receive

This isn't getting by. This is getting what you deserve. Working at Lidl is rewarding, in every sense, because we give you the training to succeed in your role and plenty of opportunities to progress your career here. We're proud to offer a competitive salary starting from £32,500 to £41,000 (depending on experience) with a generous holiday allowance. Save for your future with our pension scheme, or save today with an in-store discount, plus extra discounts on days out, cinema tickets and much more.

As part of your training you will have the opportunity to undertake an 18 month Team Leader Supervisor apprenticeship, delivered in partnership with our Apprenticeship Provider. If successful for the role and wish to undertake the apprenticeship you will be subject to third party eligibility checks for the programme.

What to expect when you apply

We’ll invite you to complete online exercises, designed to help us find out if you’re a future Lidl leader. You can find out more and complete a practice exercise when you visit: http://getstarted.cut-e.com
