Retail Degree Apprenticeship

We have nearly 500 friendly stores in our local communities and they have never played a more important role in our customers’ lives than they do right now as we continue to feed the nation. You can play a key role in working in the heart of your community with our 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 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 £20,000 starting salary while you’re studying.

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 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 can be hard graft. 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. But if you love thinking on your feet at the heart of the action and want to have great ideas to provide our customers with a great shopping experience, then this could be the perfect opportunity for you.

Achieve a valuable degree and the start of a great career

We’re confident you’ll find working at Morrisons rewarding, our team spirit is hard to beat! We celebrate individuals and their achievements, it’s all about getting stuck in, learning tons, and bringing what makes you special to make us better (No wonder we were awarded Best School Leaver/Apprenticeship Strategy at this year’s ISE Awards!).

While you’re working with us, you’ll also be studying towards a BA (Hons) Retail Leadership Integrated Degree at Bradford University.

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 and willingness to move between stores and locations. 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.

Company

Morrisons offers you the chance to be part of a different kind of retail business. Whether you’re a school leaver, student or graduate, our early careers give you a unique perspective, real responsibility and tons of valuable experience.  

You see, unlike our competitors, we own most of our own supply chain. We’re both food makers and shopkeepers, home to diverse teams that create success together. That means you’ll find an amazing scope for learning here.

We’ve a real variety of paths to choose from, each giving you a brilliant head start. But wherever your journey takes you, you’ll find all the support you need to thrive in your career. Because together, we all make Morrisons.

Feeding the nation and doing the right thing for our customers and colleagues is what drives us at Morrisons.

A team of more than 120,000 people, we work in partnership with communities, suppliers and British farmers to provide great shopping experiences and fresh food from field to fork.

Join us, on our Degree Apprenticeship Programme and we can offer you an experience of retail that you won’t be able to get anywhere else.

Created in partnership with the University of Bradford and Sheffield Hallam University, this unique programme gives you the chance to work, earn and learn while studying towards a degree AND preparing for a career in management. (No wonder we were awarded Best School Leaver/Apprenticeship Strategy at this year’s ISE Awards!)

There are a number of different schemes to choose from, including Manufacturing, Logistics, Corporate, Retail, and Food Technical. All of them are designed to help you unlock your potential by learning on the job, taking responsibility for people and projects, and working towards either a Chartered Management and Business Degree Apprenticeship, a Retail Leadership Degree Apprenticeship or a Food Industry Professional Degree Apprenticeship (we also offer a level 4 Finance apprenticeship).

Throughout the programme you’ll enjoy getting paid for doing a real role. We’ll also look after you with great perks, lots of career opportunities and the training and support you need to be the best you can be. Because together, we all make Morrisons.
