From today, 24,500 Lidl GB colleagues will be benefiting from the highest hourly wage in the sector, receiving up to 16% more than their counterparts at traditional and premium priced supermarkets.

Store and warehouse colleagues working outside the M25 will see hourly pay increase to £11.40 from £11.00, rising to £12.30 with length of service. Meanwhile, pay for those inside the M25 will increase to £12.85 from £11.95, rising to £13.15.

This represents an overall investment of £8 million and equates to a combined investment of over £60 million into colleague pay over the past year alone.

The discounter, which is actively recruiting for roles across the country, is also in direct contact with Wilko’s HR team, to provide support with jobs.

Ryan McDonnell, CEO at Lidl GB, commented: “Our people are at the core of everything we do, and this investment recognises the hard work and contribution they make in serving communities across the country every day.”

Lidl GB is encouraging individuals looking for new jobs to get in touch to find out about vacancies across its operations – from local stores to the discounter’s warehouses, as well as Head Office roles.

Stephanie Rogers, Chief Human Resources Officer at Lidl GB, added: “Back in 2015, Lidl GB became the first supermarket to pay the voluntary Living Wage. This marked a fundamental change within the industry and continues to set the bar for other supermarkets.

“Over the last seven years, we’ve continued to uphold our commitment to ensuring that those working at Lidl GB receive a pay rate that not only recognises their hard work, but also aligns with rising living costs. I’m incredibly proud to be part of an organisation that puts its people first.”

This follows the introduction of new colleague benefits earlier in the year, including life assurance and optional health and dental insurance schemes. This forms part of an already competitive package offered to colleagues, such as enhanced holiday entitlement, ongoing development opportunities and 10% discount in stores.
