At Asda, our Graduates get much more than just experience and a well-known name to put on their CV. In fact, our brand-new programme gives Graduates more opportunities than ever to shape our future. This means enormous scope to explore a variety of different teams, really understand our broader business and get to grips with the ins and outs of leadership.
It all starts with a six-month placement in our stores. Here, you’ll manage a number of colleagues in different teams during our busiest time of the year. It’s demanding, but you’ll take decisive, in the moment actions that’ll have a wide-reaching impact on our business. Then it’s on to the next 18 months, where you’ll move into your chosen path in either Operations or Commercial.
In Operations, you’ll continue being at the heart of our business, either working your way up to Store management or in Head Office, which could include home shopping, Retail Central Operations, property, logistics or compliance.
In Store it’s all about gaining a full understanding of the different store formats, such as Supermarket, Superstore and Asda Living. And you’ll do the same for our departments like fresh, ambient and non-food.
For our Commercial Graduates, you’ll experience an exciting variety of rotations. This could include merchandising, technology, design, quality, procurement, compliance, supply and marketing. These rotations will be based at our Head Office - Asda House - in Leeds. You’ll build your commercial and leadership skills, helping to ensure our stores have exactly what they need to serve customers better.
Of course, with a brand-new programme, we needed a brand-new set of entry criteria. And to make sure we find the most talented Grads, we’re no longer looking at grades. Now, it’s all about you – your real passion for Retail, can-do attitude and positive approach. In return, you won’t just get the skills, experience and knowledge to become a future leader of our business. You’ll also receive a competitive salary and other fantastic benefits, including dental and health cover, sharesave plans, reviews with senior business leaders and much, much more.
