Graduate Opportunities with The Co-operative Group
NOTICE: This job has now expired and will not be accepting any more
Why join one business when you can join a whole mix of them?
WeÆre not just a food retailer; weÆre also the UKÆs largest independent travel agent, a funeral director, a pharmacist and more. WeÆve won a plethora of industry awards spanning every one of our chosen markets, with recent accolades including the prestigious Multiple Retailer of the Year, and UK Travel Agent of the Year.
But the real difference lies not just in what we do; itÆs what we are. A co-operative. ItÆs an altogether different business model, where everything we do is for the benefit of our members. WeÆre driven by our social goals and our co-operative values give us a positive advantage û for instance, we already sell more Fair Trade products than any other high-street retailer.
Unlike a plc, we donÆt have a board of shareholders to answer to. But that doesnÆt mean weÆre any less commercially ambitious. We operate in fiercely competitive markets, and weÆre focussed not only being the most successful consumer co-operative business, but also on leading the retail sector as a whole. WeÆre responding to our membersÆ needs with large-scale change initiatives spanning the length and breadth of the Group; and we need more people who are equally passionate about what we can achieve.
This is your chance to join a business with integrity û and play a pivotal role in shaping our future. There are opportunities all over the business for commercially focussed graduates to take up leadership positions. But while early responsibility and a high profile are exciting prospects, it wonÆt be easy to earn the credibility and respect youÆll need to make an impact. You need to be open-minded, tenacious, resilient and flexible.
So ask yourself: have you got what it takes?
