We have some new and exciting opportunities to join our Buying team, with our first ever cohort on our Buyer Development Programme where you could kick start your buying career in one of the fastest growing discount retailers in the UK!
As part of the role you will complete an 18 month Level 4 apprenticeship in Buying and Merchandising through SCL Education Group, where you will finish with an industry-recognised qualification and the chance to take on your own product category and continue to build your buying career with us.
This role will allow you to experience the buzz of the fast-paced retail industry, and provide you with invaluable hands on experience in the full product lifecycle from conception to being stocked in our 600 stores nationwide. This is a rare opportunity to learn from inside a unique organisation that has been built on innovation and commercially minded buying.
We are investing in our future and into our next generation of buying talent. With a Category Manager as your mentor, you will work alongside experienced Senior Buyers and Buyers to generate ideas for new ranges, analyse market data and trends and liaise with suppliers to deliver the best product ranges for our customers.
You will be fully site based in our Liverpool Head Office throughout the course of your apprenticeship, and will have dedicated time during your working week to attend virtual workshops, tutor meetings and complete other tasks that contribute towards your off-the-job hours, which are all part of your overall learning and course completion.
This is the perfect opportunity if you have a passion for product, being hands on and creative and thrive in a fast-paced environment. We are also looking for individuals who have an analytical mind, are meticulous with detail and have good commercial understanding.
With a continually growing and evolving product range in stores and a determination to deliver the best to our customers, there is no better place to join and start your buying journey than here!
We are now accepting applications for intakes in both January/February 2024 and May/June 2024.
