Retail Graduate 2023



We have nearly 500 friendly stores in our local communities across the country. We love providing over 11 million customers every week with good quality fresh food and a great shopping experience they won't find anywhere else. You can play a key role in making an impact on your community as a Retail Graduate.

Our store teams deliver a friendly, fresh-focused shopping experience to our customers across the store. Join us, on our Retail Graduate Scheme, and you’ll quickly develop all the experience and skills you need while earning a starting salary of £28,000. Along the way, we'll guide you to progress and become a future store manager.

What you’ll be doing

Over two years, you’ll work with different store teams, learning about our operations, systems, and procedures. It will involve you getting stuck into all kinds of new challenges and no two days will be the same. You’ll quickly move into running a team of colleagues where you’ll lead a department to deliver great service and availability every day for our customers. Day-to-day tasks that you will take on could include:

  • Ensuring the store is set up to the best standard to drive sales and make for a smoother customer experience
  • Leading teams to ensure that standards, regulations and laws are met while trading
  • Creating and reviewing team rotas to ensure sufficient staff during the day

You will be at the forefront of making our customers feel welcome and ensuring they enjoy their shopping experience. You will get stuck into a variety of activities that will go beyond 9-5. Your role will involve early starts, late finishes and weekends, as well as working bank holidays and during peak times of the year. It’s hard work for sure, but it’s also very rewarding. If you want to help customers, and be at the heart of the action, then this could be the perfect scheme for you.

What you need to join us

We are food makers and shop keepers, and together, we make Morrisons. You’ll need to be a great listener, communicator and a people person, whether you lead and inspire diverse teams or share your passion for food with customers and colleagues. We look for people who are resilient and driven and have a positive demeanour. We also need you to be happy to move around the country growing your skills in different stores. A minimum 2:2 degree and a full UK driving licence are vital for this scheme.
