We have over 3,400 shops across the UK, from our small Express stores to our large Extra stores, and our colleagues are the beating heart of those shops.
Serving millions of customers a week in our stores, our internship roles aren’t just about having a passion for our products and motivating a large team to deliver complex tasks. It’s about making a difference and understanding what matters for our customers and inspiring all of our colleagues to serve our customers a little better every day.
It is fast paced with no two days being the same. It’s a chance to put your skills, experience and instincts to the test by exploring opportunities and finding better ways of working. In addition, you will be supporting and developing our colleagues and also acting as a role model for your team.
During your paid 10 week programme, you will develop towards running a department as a team manager for two weeks in one of our large stores. You will be supported through your programme through a variety of learning that will build your skills and develop your knowledge. It will be a mix of self–led training, development days and experiences, which will focus on our store operation, your leadership style and understanding our customers.
Within our store team you will need an energetic and enthusiastic attitude, not forgetting a passion for retail. We’re looking for somebody who can effectively communicate with customers and colleagues, loves a challenge as well as being able to think on their feet. The real success in this role will come from working as part of a team and being great with people.
We kick off our internship programmes with an induction where you will learn more about our business and your programme plus it’s a great opportunity for you to meet your fellow interns. You will then be introduced to your team where you will get to know more about the area you will be working in.
The time you will spend in store will help you to learn how our stores operate, how they link to your role or project and help you to understand our customers.
You will gain experience from working in a role within your team which will help to give you a breadth of knowledge about your area and our business. You will find out more about this during your induction.
We will support your development with e-learning, and in addition you will have the opportunity to learn from others and on the job.
