Commercial Graduate Programme

Job description

Working in one of our commercial teams whether it be in food, general merchandise or procurement gives our graduates the opportunity to experience the scope and scale of our business that is full of varied opportunities. We give our graduates the tools to shape their own future with a career path that meets their own personal goals and aspirations. This fast-paced and exciting environment gives our graduates a great opportunity to develop their commercial skills and really drive our strategy and the growth of our business.

What you will be doing

No two days are the same, one day you could be out visiting suppliers, then the next analysing data and negotiating costs for the business. You will also spend lots of your time building relationships with your internal and external stakeholders – even entering commercial negotiations with suppliers. Whatever part of commercial you are placed in for your graduate programme, whether it’s in food, general merchandise or procurement, it will allow you to develop all the skills you need.

What we are looking for

Within any of the Commercial teams you will need to be driven, ambitious and willing to learn. It’s not essential that you have any previous experience but we’re looking for graduates with great communication and influencing skills when collaborating with their stakeholders. Having a strong commercial mind is really important as well as being comfortable with analysing data. Being curious around market trends will also be really valuable in this role.
