Retail Degree Apprenticeship - 2020
We’ll make you into a brilliant Retail Manager.
You’ll help make Morrisons.
This 3-year programme will see you thinking quickly on your feet, all to help provide our customers with a great shopping experience in store.
It’s important to remember, and you’ll know as a customer yourself, that retail isn’t Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm. That means your role will involve some early starts or late finishes, night shifts, weekend work and bank holidays.
It may be hard work, but it’s also very rewarding. Let’s tell you how…
What will you be doing?
On the Morrisons Retail Degree Apprenticeship you’ll learn about our store trading operations and systems giving you the skills, knowledge and most importantly experience you need to successfully complete the programme and become a senior manager in one of our stores.
It all starts with a 14 week induction where you will be welcomed to Morrisons and learn about each area of the store operation . During your first few months you will have the opportunity to see the Head Office operation and also during the first year spend a week in Logistics to understand our ‘farm to fork’ mission.
From there you’ll take on a team leader role and month-by-month gain more experience as you move into management roles with more technical training, wider work experience and specific responsibilities.
All this is preparing you to successfully roll-off the programme into one of our level 3 management roles where you’ll be responsible for 10-80 colleagues across your department and the successful contribution to and delivery of your store annual sales, anything between £7.5 and £57million.
Leading by example, as a successful Morrisons Retail Manager, you’ll inspire your colleagues with passion and understanding to ensure they effectively delivers operational routines, get recognised for their contributions and deliver the Morrisons culture in all that they do.
You will be directly contributing to an enhanced shopping experience for OUR customers in YOUR local community.
