Buying Graduate Scheme

At Morrisons, we give hard-working graduates the chance to be part of a different kind of retailer. We're both food makers and shopkeepers. That gives our trading teams a unique perspective when it comes to dealing with our suppliers. It's why they're regarded as some of the best in the country. And it's why our Buying Graduate Scheme offers a brilliant head start to a successful career in retail.

What you'll be doing

Our two-year scheme gives you early responsibility in a fast-paced area. Starting as an Buying Assistant, you'll negotiate with suppliers, work on the trading floor and go on in-store placements. We'll give you your own buying area. You'll get the chance to make us even more competitive, eventually taking charge of a category. Expect to play a role in everything from product development to product launches, marketing to packaging.

What you'll need to join us

Along with a minimum 2:1 degree, you'll need confidence, drive, resilience and a head for figures. We're looking for the ability to buy, sell and innovate in ways that increase sales and customer satisfaction. This involves understanding the fine detail of agreements and keeping up-to-speed with products, competitors and the market. Naturally, you'll need the ability to build great relationships with colleagues and suppliers.
