Team Lidl

Our objective is to become Northern Ireland’s top employer and a great place to work, encourage health and wellbeing, provide equal opportunities to all and develop our employees to reach their full potential.

Overview Overview

It is important to us that all our team members are proud of what we achieve together in Lidl.

Our #WeAreLidl people strategy brings to life our philosophy that our colleagues are part of one team. This strategy focuses on developing sustainable relationships by engaging leaders, prioritising employee wellbeing and implementing consistent and transparent two-way communication, while positively contributing to business objectives. This has, and continues to, engage colleagues and embeds a culture driven by our values – Respect, Recognition, Responsibility and Trust.


Work Safe. Live Well. Work Safe. Live Well.

When it comes to employee wellbeing we ensure exacting high standards. Work Safe. Live Well. is the ethos of our health and wellbeing strategy. Designed to take an holistic view of employee health and wellness, the strategy focuses on 3 core areas; physical safety at work, physical and mental health, and financial wellbeing.

The programme focuses on safety in the workplace, mindfulness, fitness, nutrition and provides an impressive employee benefits package. Additional programme benefits include pension, healthcare scheme, employee assistance programme, anniversary payments, tax savers, sabbatical leave, maternity and paternity top up and the recently introduced paid volunteer day.


Living Wage Living Wage

We were delighted to be the nationwide retailer in Ireland and Northern Ireland to commit to paying the 2018 living wage as a minimum to each of our team members. The living wage is an independently assessed and measured rate of income considered necessary to meet basic needs such as housing, food, clothing, transport and healthcare – the cost of which is not always covered by the national minimum wage.

“Key to our success here is the dedication shown by our team across all levels of our organisation and we are delighted to be able to introduce the increased living wage to entry level employees. Having the best paid team in the sector is something we pride ourselves on.”

At Lidl, all employees are provided with the training and support they need to reach their full potential and to progress within the organisation. In fact, many of our managers successfully advanced their careers from starting positions in our stores. Structured, on-the-job training is the foundation of our training concept, giving our employees the opportunity for further development, both professionally and personally.
