Are You Searching For An Exciting Place To Start Your Career?

Your Graduate journey in the Merchandising team begins as an Allocation Analyst. You will learn how to analyse and trade your business, the importance of the partnership between Merchandising and Buying, and how we deliver great value to our customers both in stores and online.

As an Allocation Analyst, your role is to ensure the right goods are in the right stores, and online, at the right time, to drive profitable sales for our business.

Responsibility from the start
Your first few months in the business begins with a comprehensive group induction course. This includes both classroom and practical workshops combined with on-the-job learning to help you take on responsibility from the start. With the support of a skilled network that includes your manager, mentor and buddy you’ll develop your knowledge, your Merchant skills, and the relationships you need in order to drive profitable sales.

Where Can My Career Go?
We nurture and develop our people, providing on-going training at every level. You will learn quickly in our fast-paced environment and are empowered to make decisions from the outset. You will drive your own development and be fully supported along the way. We’re a flexible European business, once you’ve developed your career in Merchandising you could go on to be a Buyer – or into other areas of business that excite you.

  • A degree in any discipline
  • Curiosity and passion for our business and retail
  • Commercially aware and customer focused
  • Comfortable with numbers
  • Able to build strong relationships and collaborate with others
  • Strong communication skills and confidence to openly share opinion with others
