Procurement and Supply Chain Summer Placement

Our 10-week summer placement programme is designed to increase employability in students whilst providing a valuable resource to the business. We’re looking for self-directed learners and self-motivated individuals who show potential to grow, learn and develop on our programme. You should aim to demonstrate a can-do, proactive attitude and a genuine interest and desire to learn more about our business and industry.  In return, we offer projects with a high level of responsibility and the opportunity to enhance and develop the fundamental skills required for working life, with a support network that’s second to none. We want you to stand out in the workplace and helping you establish your strengths and fulfil your potential is what our Summer Placement is all about. We also encourage you to get involved with community and charity activities. One of these is the Summer Placement Charity Challenge, which raises money for our chosen charities. In the last three years students have raised around £50,000 through various team initiatives – all while enhancing vital skills and networking across the business. If you perform well, you could leave us with an offer to join the Graduate Programme the following year.

We have locations across the UK – plus we arrange and pay for accommodation close to your place of work with other students based in the area.

Our Procurement team is responsible for spending in excess of £5bn per annum on everything the business requires to operate successfully.  We work closely with our internal colleagues to ensure that we understand their needs, researching supply markets and devising procurement and supply chain strategies to ensure we get the maximum value for our money.

We look for people who have an inquisitive nature; people who can grasp supply markets and the economic drivers of our suppliers, turning this knowledge and a strong understanding of our business needs into a sourcing strategy. We need people across a number of academic disciplines who have good influencing and stakeholder skills and believe they can turn their commercial acumen into
