Graduate scheme


Fast-track your career

We’re looking for people who are ready to help shape the future of Ocado Logistics and the wider global business. As an Operations Management graduate, you’ll be supporting a network of people within our highly automated, fast-paced fulfilment centres unlike anything you will have ever seen before.

We will empower you from day one and you’ll be given genuine development opportunities and continued support, so you can have a successful career here at Ocado Group. Some of our previous graduates have progressed within the business to enrol into a leadership role or project management.

Throughout the two-year programme you’ll be working towards a full management position with the expectation that you will progress through the organisation to more senior management or specialised roles in double-quick time.

If you are bursting with energy, drive and initiative and are striving to make a difference in a pioneering business changing the way the world shops, this role is for you.

What you’ll do:

  • Four six-month placements across the UK network
  • Your first year is all about understanding our state-of-the-art Customer Fulfilment Centres, from inbound to despatch. You'll be managing parts of the operation, taking responsibility for people and production.
  • In your second year, you’ll be able to tailor your scheme to suit your career goals and aspirations from Operational Excellence and Supply Chain to Delivery Operations and Zoom, our on-demand grocery service.

What you’ll need:

  • A bachelor's degree in any subject from any university.
  • You’ll need to be a highly motivated individual with a focus on working as a team and moving towards collective goals.
  • You'll need to work with stakeholders from across the business. Communication and listening skills are essential.
  • Our operation is live 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so you will need to be flexible to work shift patterns that would include both day and night shifts and weekends.

About your benefits:

Our people are at the heart of our business and without them we wouldn’t be able to deliver our award-winning service to millions of customers across the country each day. So it’s important to us that along with safe working environments we offer a competitive salary and fantastic benefits. Some of our most popular benefits are:

  • A range of discounts at various retailers including 15% off online shopping at Ocado
  • The ability to share in our success through a range of share plans
  • Tools & support for your health and wellbeing
  • Option to purchase additional holiday

A career at Ocado Group can lead to many things with fantastic opportunities available in various parts of the business.

We offer flexibility on your location

Wherever possible, we offer the option to work from almost any location* for up to 30 calendar days a year, giving our teams the flexibility to be closer to family, expand their horizons, or simply have a change of scenery.

Balance and wellbeing are important to us, and taking a break is key. We also want everyone to use all of their annual leave. That’s why we offer you the possibility of attaching up to two weeks of annual leave to your work-from-anywhere, giving you the chance of extending your stay in your chosen destination.
