Working At Lidl
In July 2000, Lidl burst onto the Irish grocery market. Since then, we have opened over 190 stores across the island of Ireland. What is our recipe for success? The answer is simple – our people. It is our dedicated and committed workforce that has helped us to cement our enviable position as one of Ireland's favourite grocery retailers.
Our Lidl DNA
We are proud to be leading the way in grocery retailing. As a team, our vision is to make our customers’ lives better by providing quality food at market leading value. We're an ambitious team and we are proud of the way we do things. Life in Lidl is fast-paced and challenging, no two days are the same and we wouldn't have it any other way. Hard work and fun go together in Lidl. We are a people business and having a good team around you is what we are all about. What does this mean for our team? Our values are core to everything we do. Respect Lidl is a melting pot of ideas and people. We respect each other’s differences and we’re consistent and fair. But we also respect our workplace, our products, their origin and our customers. And sometimes ‘respect’ is really as simple as helping each other out. It’s hard work being this dedicated. A helping hand shows that you care. Responsibility We serve the nation, that’s a huge responsibility. As individuals and as a business, we are role models in every community where we work, to our customers and to each other. Each and every one of us shares in that responsibility and we are always prepared to step up and step in when tasked with challenges. We don’t just serve the local community, we’re an important part of it. We have to be the best version of ourselves, every single day. Yes, we’re a shop, a warehouse, a support office - but we’re also responsible for serving the next generation, for fuelling Ireland, for giving people great food and great service that they can afford. Trust Our customers trust us to provide the best produce, the freshest food, the tastiest treats and a central aisle full of the best deals in the market. We trust each other to work hard, work smart and bring our expertise and enthusiasm to work every day. And you can trust the business to recognise your efforts, give you the training and development you need, but also trust you with the freedom to be brilliant. Recognition Honest feedback is so, so important. If any of us can do things better, we must. That’s how we stay ahead of the competition. But even more important than that is recognition for a job well done. Whether that’s financial rewards, promotion, a senior manager recognising what a colleague does for the business, or just a simple ‘thank you’ from a customer. That’s what gets us all out of bed in the morning.
"There is no doubt in my mind that our people are the secret to our success. And for that success to continue, we each need to be the best that we can be. Life in Lidl is fast-paced – be it in the warehouse, in the store or in the office – it’s all go! Lidl is committed to looking after our colleagues not only at work, but also in their personal life. That’s why we take health and wellbeing very seriously at Lidl. Our colleagues' wellbeing includes their physical wellbeing, mental wellbeing and financial wellbeing. We are committed to having policies and practises in place that reward them and look after the many aspects of their wellbeing. Lidl continues to move forward as an effective, HR-focused, organisation – one that leads the market in terms of HR policy development. In the past we’ve invested in many wellbeing initiatives, including the energising Step Challenge, life-saving Cardiac Screening, supportive and confidential Employee Assistance Programme, to name but a few. We pay above the market rate, and introduced the ‘living wage’ to all colleagues across the business. And, we go further, ensuring that their financial wellbeing is more than just that. We provide benefits to reward the hard work and commitment of our team and to look after their wellbeing. I am incredibly proud of who we are and all that we have achieved as a team so far. As we continue to develop and grow our business, our team can look forward to our efforts being continuously recognised." - Maeve McCleane, Director of HR *Competitive Salary *Commute to Work For Less *Bike To Work Scheme *Charitable Giving *Pension Scheme *Leave Policies *Maternity And Paternity Top-Up *Healthcare Scheme *Wellness Initiatives *Sports and Social Community
The Lidl Development Journey shows the opportunities for career development at Lidl and is easy to navigate. If our colleagues would like to move roles and/or progress in Lidl, they can move between stores, logistics and office teams. In fact that's exactly what most of our senior management team have done.
