Our 3-year Retail Degree Apprenticeship based in England, and 4-year programme in Scotland allows you to work towards a degree while preparing for a brilliant management career within our unique food retail business. Not only do we pay any course fees, but you also earn a starting salary of £22,000!
Achieve a valuable degree and the start of a great career
Get an early taste of leadership by taking on responsibility for a team of colleagues within a department. Experience all areas of our stores, gaining an overview of its operation and helping to keep our stores running smoothly. Day-to-day tasks that you will be responsible for could include:
- Ensuring the store is set up to the best standard to drive sales and continue delivering a great customer experience
- Spending time with other colleagues to understand each area of our stores and the part they play
- Supporting live business projects to develop project management skills
- Learning about our store trading operations and systems
As well as learning on-the-job, if in England, you’ll also be studying towards a BSc (Hons) Chartered Management Degree Apprenticeship at University of Bradford, or a BA (Hons) Business Management Degree Apprenticeship with University of Strathclyde if in Scotland. Balancing work and a degree course will be challenging. To support your learning, we'll offer study leave to complete university work stress free. At the end of the scheme, you’ll have built the experiences and skills needed to be a future store manager and will have gained a full chartered membership of the CMI (Chartered Management Institute for England only).
As the fast-paced world of retail isn’t 9-5, this role involves early starts, late finishes, night shifts and working weekends and Bank Holidays. It’s hard work for sure. But it’s also very rewarding. Every day is different, and we’ll support you every step of the way. If you love helping customers, learning to become a retail manager is a great idea!
