What it’s like to work in this area

  

We strive to give our customers what they want, when they want it. Our product team are at the forefront of our customer offer working with over 8,000 suppliers. This fast-paced and exciting environment gives our apprentices a great opportunity to develop themselves and really drive our strategy and the growth of our business. We use insight and feedback to help deliver successful plans and bring new and exciting products to market.

 

Our programme runs in both General Merchandise and Food areas of our business so you will work in one of these teams. In General Merchandise you could work in buying or merchandising, and in Food in buying or selling.

 

What you will be doing

Our Level 4 Apprenticeship programme will give you a breadth of experience into different areas of our Food and General Merchandise teams. No two days are the same, one day you could be negotiating costs and selling, and another strategic planning and visiting supplier factories. There's also an opportunity to experience our different store formats and test new products with our developers to decide the next trend we should go after. It's really rewarding to make an impact at such a large scale.
