During your first three years, you’ll work in two out of the following four areas:

  • Logistics operations. both our inbound and outbound teams are responsible for delivering an efficient and simplified flow from our processing centres to our stores. In this team you’ll be responsible getting goods through customs and complying with international trading laws; overseeing the European logistic network as part of a team; developing efficiency strategies; decreasing costs and making life simpler for our partners. It’s a serious challenge, involving several deliveries a week – each containing thousands of items – but one our teams thrive on.
  • Supply chain planning and partnership. working alongside buying and merchandising this team enable the smooth and efficient flow of goods. You’ll be responsible for driving greater service and efficiency through effective planning and partnership. You’ll also provide all educational materials for processing centres to fulfil their service to stores.
  • Strategy and analytics. providing specialist capability and leadership to underpin strategy and growth. This is more than just keeping things running smoothly day-to-day. In this team you’ll also work with teams across the business; develop strategy and plan infrastructure to keep great fashion and homewares hitting the shelves.
  • Technology and engineering. This team is responsible for delivering capital projects, new and existing Distribution Centre expansions and leveraging expertise to drive innovation and build relationships with third party providers. Here you’ll be directly involved in growth and new technology.

What does my career path look like?

You become a valued member of the team from the day you start. Over the course of the programme, your personal drive and passion can propel you from Analyst to Manager – and that’s just the beginning. You’ll be given our full support to grow your career in the way you want, at the pace you set.

Start date: September 2020.

  • An analytical mind and great communication skills
  • Flexibility to work in different locations
  • Enthusiasm for great off-price products
