In a big year for job hunting, Aldi has opened its jobs for next year.
“We are looking for a team of welders, contact tracers, contact welders.
We want to hire someone who can do everything from the welding, to the contact tracing, to our contact tracing.
So it’s a mix,” said the head of Aldi in India’s Rajasthan state, Manoj Kumar.
The job posting said the welders will be given a daily wage of ₹15,000 and receive training on contact tracing to improve their performance.
The company has already announced its hiring spree for 2017, with openings for 1,800 people across its stores.
The latest announcement from the company came on Friday, with a job posting on its website that detailed the roles available for the year.
Aldi has been in India since it was founded in 1971, and has more than 1,500 stores in all major cities and towns across the country.
The announcement comes as India’s biggest manufacturing firms such as the Hindustan Group and Hindustani conglomerate Tata are expected to announce big job losses as they ramp up their investments in the country in the face of slowing demand.
India has one of the highest unemployment rates in the world at 18.6 per cent.
