M25 staff will see a pay rise of £12.85 an hour.

It comes just two months after a pay rise was introduced, which gave store assistants £11 an hour.

Aldi said the series of pay rises mean staff will be earning around 13% more than in the same period last year.

The retailer said it has invested more than £100 million in associate pay over the past 12 months, amid ongoing competition to secure and retain workers amid labor shortages.

Giles Hurley, chief executive of Aldi UK & Ireland, said: “We recognize that our associates are the best in the sector and we are committed to ensuring they are paid the best too.

“We are incredibly proud of every single member of Team Aldi and are delighted to be the first UK supermarket to pay all store assistants the minimum of £11.40 an hour.”

The supermarket has also outlined plans to create more than 6,000 new jobs this year, adding to the 4,500 created last year.

Aldi’s pay rise has been followed by a slew of rivals including Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Lidl.
