Job description

Made for graduates who can make a deal.

At Morrisons, we give hard-working graduates the chance to be part of a different kind of retailer. We’re both food makers and shopkeepers. That gives our trading teams a unique perspective when it comes to dealing with our suppliers. It’s why they’re regarded as some of the best in the country. And it’s why our Buying Graduate Scheme offers a brilliant head start to a successful career in retail.

What you’ll be doing

Our two-year scheme gives you early responsibility in a fast-paced area. Starting as an Buying Assistant, you’ll negotiate with suppliers, work on the trading floor and go on in-store placements. We’ll give you your own buying area. You’ll get the chance to make us even more competitive, eventually taking charge of a category. Expect to play a role in everything from product development to product launches, marketing to packaging.

Person requirements

Qualifications and experience requirements

This involves understanding the fine detail of agreements and keeping up-to-speed with products, competitors and the market. Naturally, you’ll need the ability to build great relationships with colleagues and suppliers.
