About ASDA

Employing almost 150,000 colleagues and serving over 18 million customers every week, we’re a big business offering big opportunities for apprentices here at Asda.

An Asda Apprenticeship really can change your life. It can open doors to all kinds of careers. It can help you gain professional qualifications. And you can experience the best of both worlds – continuing to learn and starting to earn at the same time.

As an apprentice, you will help us bring fresh ideas to the way we do things. You’ll help us challenge our thinking while learning at pace and getting stuck into a variety of projects.

Supported by extensive internal and external learning opportunities, being an apprentice at Asda means you get the chance to experience your learning in action in the real world. It means you can see the difference between what works in theory, and what works in practice, essential insights to have in the fast-paced world of retail.

But while there’s so much to experience, so many different angles and aspects to our business and so many career paths to forge, you’ll find the right support within our culture.

As Future Talent you are, naturally, the future of our business and we want you to help shape it. Whether you are looking to progress in a specialist area, or are searching for a business career that really grabs you, we will support you every step of the way as part of our Future Talent Network.

We currently offer two Apprenticeship programmes:

Asda Technology

Our Technology Apprenticeships are designed to give you a real deep-dive into a technical specialism, as well as all the ongoing training and support you need to develop to your full potential. It’s all about problem-solving, and that spark of potential we see in you is far more important to us than any previous technology experience or qualifications.

Asda Business Services

In the early stages of your career, we realise it can be overwhelming deciding which area of business you want to develop in. So, if you are keen to pursue a career in business but are not sure which direction to take, our ABS apprenticeship has been designed with this in mind. It offers you the opportunity to experience working in a number of different departments before choosing an area to specialise in.

Our apprenticeships run for 3-4 years, and offer the chance to gain professional qualifications.

As a business that evolves at a rapid pace, we’re all about reimagining retail for the future and embracing change. We want our apprentices to challenge us – our ideas, our ways of working, the way we use technology and data. Having a voice is a big part of being at Asda and if you’ve got an idea, we want to hear it.

Asda is a fun, informal, ‘let’s get on and do it’ type of culture, too. It’s important to us to enjoy what we do and share great rewards from it. For those with curiosity, imagination and determination, developing your career at Asda really does offer endless possibilities. Our vision, our scale and our culture can really take you places.
