Manufacturing Degree Apprenticeship

We’re the UK’s 2nd largest fresh food manufacturer with 18 sites across the UK.

We’re unique in the way we source and make most of our fresh food ourselves. Our different manufacturing capabilities make us stand out in the world of retail. You can play a key role in working in the heart of your community with our Manufacturing 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 Manufacturing Degree Apprenticeship, delivered in partnership with the University of Bradford, 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

Did you know, at Morrisons we make 60% of our fresh food in-house? This puts our manufacturing team right at the heart of our business. Join us, as a Manufacturing Degree Apprentice, and you’ll get to make an impact from day one, as you work on exciting projects and help us make our manufacturing processes simpler and more efficient.

Along the way, you’ll learn how to run production lines and lead production teams while getting to grips with a wide range of manufacturing equipment, processes and technologies, and gaining exposure to a variety of manufacturing teams. This should help you develop the skills and experience you need to become a Team Manager before too long and progress to a Shift Manager by the end of the programme.

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 BSc (Hons) Management and Business at the University of Bradford. 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. And, in return for your hard work and determination, you’ll gain full chartered membership of the CMI (Chartered Management Institute). What’s more, you’ll have the experience you need to step into a Shift Manager role at the end of the programme.

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 Grace C (4) or above 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.
