Technology continues to change the face of retail and ours leads the way.

We also care about our people, especially graduates. We want to help you have the best start to your career by providing training to give you the right skills and experience. That’s why you get responsibilities from day one – you’ll learn fast! From redesigning the grocery home shopping (GHS) website, to working on our new checkout systems, previous graduates have quickly learned how to maximise the systems they managed!
