Careers rarely develop the way we plan them. Our career path often takes many twists and turns, with particular events, choices and people influencing our direction.

People management experience and understanding is vital, the ability to get the best out of those around will always make you successful. A degree is needed to be considered for this job as an entry point, but for those without a degree, Lidl has an excellent record on internal promotion. I started as a deputy store manager with 2 years management experience from a previous employer and worked my way to this position over 5 years. An interest in supply chain management and personnel management are essential to perform at the highest levels in retail. Flexibility, commitment, determination, maturity and good communication skills are required for this position. Enthusiasm for the role is often overlooked as a factor in success. I find that those who love their work really do succeed more often.

Social?
Social 
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.
