Retail

There is a vast range of roles in the retail sector: from management, buying and merchandising to product technology and fashion design. With the continued growth of online retailing, there are also many technology-related roles available. Graduates could work for retailers with only an online presence, only a high street presence, or a mix of both (sometimes known as ‘brick and click’).

Retail has had a tumultuous time since the start of the pandemic. However, retailers that have been understood to hold up well during Covid-19 restrictions – including Amazon, Asos, Asda, Aldi and Tesco – feature prominently on the list. Please note that the Arcadia Group went into administration after our survey opened.
