Type of opportunity:
Million-pound budgets; wonderful stores; hundreds and thousands of products; teams of great colleagues; and a multi-channel retail strategy. These are just some of the things you’ll manage as a Graduate Retail Manager.
Are you looking for a fast-track into a high-powered career, something different to your usual 9-5 office job? Just imagine the opportunities that come with managing an entire store or department, leading and inspiring a team to make every moment special for customers, interacting with thousands of people and balancing a huge budget. And as well as the satisfaction of seeing your decisions making a difference to our customers and business stakeholders alike, you’ll enjoy some great rewards.
To prepare for your Store Management role, you’ll be hands-on in different store areas including Food, Clothes, Home and Store Operations. You’ll learn about every aspect of how a store runs from supply chain to shop floor and all about our brand and our customers. We’ll expect you to work a mixture of shifts covering early mornings, evenings and weekends so you see the full operation of the store and most importantly be on the shopfloor with our customers during our busiest trading windows. All this will come with serious responsibility early on, but every step of the way you’ll be coached and supported by some enthusiastic colleagues, as well as the people who’ve been there before – our team of experienced managers.
Once your training is complete, you’ll have the leadership skills to inspire your Team Managers and really engage and connect with colleagues. You’ll be able to effectively run a store or sales floor and open up numerous career options.
So if you are outgoing, analytical, calm under pressure and passionate about products; if you can build relationships, think on your feet, spot where improvements can be made to make every moment special for customers – and then have the confidence and determination to make them happen – this could be the perfect programme for you.
