What it’s like to work in this area
We have over 3,400 shops across the UK, from our small Express stores to our large Extra stores and our colleagues are the beating heart of those shops.
Serving millions of customers a week in our stores, our internship roles aren’t just about having a passion for our products and motivating a large team to deliver complex tasks. It’s about making a difference and understanding what matters for our customers and inspiring all of our colleagues to serve our customers a little better every day.
It is fast paced with no two days being the same. It’s a chance to put your skills, experience and instincts to the test by chasing opportunities, finding better ways of working, supporting and developing our colleagues and also acting as a role model for your team.
What you will be doing
During your ten week programme, you will develop towards running a department as a team manager for two weeks in one of our large stores. You will be supported through your programme through a variety of learning which will build your skills and develop your knowledge. It will be a mix of self–led training, development days and experiences which will focus on our store operation, your leadership style and understanding our customers.
What we are looking for
Within our store team you will need an energetic and enthusiastic attitude, not forgetting a passion for retail. We’re looking for somebody who can effectively communicate with customers and colleagues, loves a challenge as well as being able to think on their feet. The real success in this role will come from working as part of a team and being great with people.
