Using customer insight, we create beautiful and innovative ranges at great prices which encourage customers to keep coming back. We want to build a brand that customers love and trust, at affordable prices.

 

The ENSPIRE apprenticeship programme welcomes people with a ‘passion for fashion’ with the get-go to want to help customers across the world. We’ll support you throughout the three year programme, giving you the time to study for your qualification with the Fashion Retail Academy. We’ll also give you a buddy and a mentor, as well as unique leadership training, setting you up for a great start in your career.

Earn as you learn

The great thing about apprenticeships is the ability to learn as you earn. Over the three years, you'll split your time between the office and working towards your Level 4 Diploma within Merchandising and Buying at the Fashion Retail Academy. This allows our apprentices to continually develop, and put everything they’re learning into practice!

Buying and Merchandising - what’s what?

A Buyer works closely with our suppliers to ensure that we’re sourcing the right products for customers. They make key decisions on colours, trends and materials. A Merchandiser delves into the detail of data, helping us to ensure we have the right amount of stock at the right time and in the right place. This is a highly proactive and strategic area of the business.

Training: Insights

As an F&F apprentice you will be supported through your programme with a great training programme which will enable you to develop both your technical skills and leadership skills. Our Insights training course supports our apprentices to learn more about themselves and their style. These training days are done alongside fellow apprentices and graduates, so they’re a great opportunity to network too!
