Retail Degree Apprenticeship
Now you don’t have to choose between starting your career or studying towards a degree. At Morrisons, we are giving hard-working school and college leavers the chance to have the best of both worlds.
Our Retail Degree Apprenticeship, delivered in partnership with the University of Bradford and Sheffield Hallam University, 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 all your course fees for you, but you also get to work and earn a salary while you’re studying – so money is never a concern.
What you’ll be doing?
Want to learn what it takes to keep a Morrisons store running smoothly? As a Retail Degree Apprentice, you’ll spend three years gaining the skills, knowledge and experience you need. You’ll learn about our store trading operations and systems. You’ll develop your project management skills by supporting live business projects. Plus you’ll get an early taste of leadership when you take on responsibility for a team of colleagues within a department.
By the end of the three years you’ll be a Senior Manager in one of our stores, with accountability for a range of departments. Show us real potential, and you could even progress onto our Store Manager Development Programme.
Make no mistake, retail management is not for everyone. It’s a fast-paced world where roles tend to be shift based, and where you often have to do early starts, late finishes and weekends, as well as working bank holidays and during peak times of the year.
Achieve a valuable degree
While you’re working with us, you’ll also be studying towards a BA (Hons). Balancing work and a degree course will be challenging. But we’ll offer you at least half a day leave a week to concentrate on your university studies.
What you’ll need to join us
We’re looking for resilience, determination and good leadership skills, along with the flexibility to meet the changing needs of our business. You’ll also need a minimum of 104 UCAS points (based on the new UCAS tariff or 260 based on the old tariffs) and Grade C (4) or more in Maths and English GCSEs.
