After a comprehensive induction and training plan, that includes classroom and practical workshops, you’ll begin to understand the fundamental partnership between Merchandising and Buying. This relationship is key to delivering value to our customers online and in store. 

You’ll be part of one of our wide-ranging product category teams, growing your knowledge and developing strong business relationships. As you progress within Merchandising you’ll develop the relationships and advanced skills necessary for making decisions that contribute to profitable sales. You’ll be supported by a capable network; that includes your managers, mentors and ‘team buddy’ throughout.

We’re an ambitious business with exciting expansion plans. We believe in nurturing talent, and view everyone as a potential leader of the future. You’ll be empowered to make decisions from the outset and learn quickly in our fast-paced environment. Acquiring the skills needed to perform these early roles, sets you on the path to become a great Merchandiser or Buyer in the future. You’ll gain experience across the business with opportunity work in a number of different product areas.

And you’ll build relationships with lots of different Merchandisers and Buyers – it’s the best way to learn what we do, and how we do it!

You will drive your own development with full support along the way.
