Lidl – Why Work With Us?


We're proud of the progress we’ve made – not only as an organisation, but as an employer.

We owe our past and future successes to our people - without their drive, ambition and hard work we could never have become one of the fastest growing retailers in Europe.

Our goals and values resonate throughout the business, through every employee, reflected in one message. WE ARE LIDL.

This is the foundation of our Employer Brand and supports the pillars that represent our people. We are proud of our successes and performance driven, we are one team with limitless potential, we are dynamic - able to overcome obstacles and make things happen.

We have big ambitions and are still growing, with new opportunities available every day. Join Lidl GB and play your part in the next chapter of our success story.

You'll be joining a proud bunch here at Lidl. Proud of our success, proud of our growth, and proud of our commitment to achieving our goals - and you will be too. You’ll be serious about your work, but you'll be able to enjoy yourself as well.


Lidl GB is a diverse network of teams who rely on each other to get the job done. That’s why we’re not surprised to hear of the strong bonds that are made - some colleagues can even say they’ve made life-long friends at Lidl.

We’ve also had a fantastic response to our recent partnership with the NSPCC, with colleagues teaming up across the nation with fresh fund-raising ideas for the ‘Speak Out, Stay Safe’ programme. A chance to have fun while raising money for a good cause! Events so far include tournaments, bake sales and fancy dress days.

Other official events include the Great North Run, Cardiff Marathon and London Marathon - and we sponsor both the annual Bananaman Triathlon and Kingston Breakfast Run.

Joining Lidl GB you'll see your career grow alongside our success, in a culture you can thrive in. If you’re ready to face an exciting new challenge, we look forward to hearing from you.

We are Lidl. Together, we make it happen.

Bring Your Best. We'll Do The Rest.

We’ll plan your training so that week after week, your confidence and capability keep growing. You’ll get stuck in and see results of your hard work. And we’ll support you every step of the way.
