About the programme

Million-pound budgets; wonderful stores; hundreds and thousands of items; scores of staff; and a multi-channel retail strategy. These are just some of the things you’ll manage as a Graduate Retail Manager.

If you’re 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 department, leading and inspiring a team, interacting with thousands of people and balancing a huge budget. And as well as the satisfaction of seeing your decisions making a difference to customers and business stakeholders alike, you’ll also enjoy some great rewards.

To prepare for your Commercial Manager role, you’ll be hands-on in different store areas including Food, Clothes, Home and Store Operations, and will spend time with HR learning about our people policies. 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 skills to inspire a team of Section Managers, run an area of the sales floor and open up numerous career options.

So if you are outgoing, analytical, calm under pressure and with a passion for perfection; if you can think on your feet, spot where improvements can be made and then have the confidence and determination to make them happen, this could be the perfect programme for you.
