 The following basic requirements must be met:

And what is the right profile?

 If you are over 18 years old and have finished ESO, you are probably leaving home to apply at Lidl. But don’t rush because first you need to find a profile that fits what they are looking for in these supermarkets. You must demonstrate:

  • Teamwork
  • Dynamism and energy
  • Motivation and optimism
  • Flexibility in working hours
  • Organization and planning
  • Customer service skills

How to send your CV to Lidl through the website

 Most importantly, it’s time to send your CV to Lidl. You already know that you can use the classic and direct way, presenting yourself in the offices closest to where you live. But if you don’t even want to leave it, everything is as simple as using your computer.

  • All you have to do is follow these steps:

 As you can see, the procedure is very simple and in a few minutes you can start your online application to apply for a job at Lidl. If you have never accessed this page before, you must register as a new user. You will be asked for a phone number, email and password.

 On the other hand, the forms ask for information about your education, experience and skills. It’s like filling out an online resume. Of course, the portal gives you the option to attach additional documents such as references, references, letters of recommendation, etc.

 In this sense, it’s a good idea to upload a personalized and original CV so that you don’t just stick with the general CV on the portal. After all, it is the one that most candidates will use and it will not differentiate you from the rest.

 Anyway, the last thing you should do is click save and register for the offer.
