Aldi offers an Audi
Despite figures revealing that overall graduate work placements have declined by more than 17%, Aldi is offering university leavers £40,000 a year, plus a new Audi A4.
The £40,000 wage packet significantly exceeds the £25,000 offered by upmarket rival Marks & Spencer.
While the economic downturn has hit graduate placements at many firms, cost-cutting shoppers are flocking to cut-price supermarket Aldi – leading to a 50% increase in graduate placements.
