Iceland foods Ltd

Iceland is redefining frozen food. Because, when food’s frozen at source, it’s fresher at the point of use than the great majority of chilled food sold by our competitors. 

We think Britain deserves to know and that consumers deserve the choice. And it’s revolutionising our reputation in the market.

We’re now recognised as one of the most innovative food retailers in the UK, leading the way in product development and pioneering initiatives. We’ve won multiple awards for our products, service and the way we treat our people. Now, we’re ready to set your career on a fast track to the top with one of our bespoke Graduate programmes.

Why work for us?

We’re already one of the biggest names in UK food retail. But that doesn’t stop us from shooting for ever-greater goals.

That’s what makes this the perfect environment for someone as ambitious as you are. You want a company that will let you really make an impact from an early stage, but still support you. And that’s exactly who we are.

Our unparalleled training and development is designed to bring out the very best in you. At Iceland, we acknowledge that we can’t create talent, but we can certainly help to shape and nurture it.

That’s why we hear so many of our Graduates saying things like, ‘It’s what you make of it – if you want it, the chance is there to go out and get it.’ Actual quote. Isn’t that exactly the kind of atmosphere you’re looking for?

What it's like here?

The culture here is one of our greatest assets. It’s that perfect balance of high professionalism and fun.

That’s because our Graduates are genuinely spurred on by the achievement they know lies ahead. In other words, it feels good to know you’re getting ahead fast and destined for a positive future.

But don't just take our word for it. See what some of our brilliant Graduates have already said about their Iceland experiences!

Recruitment Process

Put simply, your journey will begin with an online application. From here we'll shortlist based on the following criteria:

  • You'll either have, or be on track for, a 1st class or 2:1 Honours degree
  • You’ll have minimum of 250 UCAS points
  • Ideally, you’ll have also completed an Industrial Placement or relevant work experience under your belt

(In order to get the most out of the schemes, Graduates will ideally have a full UK driving licence. Normal eligibility rules also apply).

The next stage of the process is for you to complete a series of online psychometric tests. Should you pass these tests, we will arrange a telephone interview with a member of our HR team. 

If we like what we hear, you’ll then be invited to attend a two-day assessment centre in our Head Office, where we’ll assess your ability to rise above the rest. 

The final stage of our application process is to meet with one of our Directors and take part in some final testing that will assess your fit for the company and the role.
