What are we looking for?

We like to see the potential in people, even when they're just starting out, and so we recruit graduates into PERMANENT entry level roles all year round.

These positions come up in areas across the business, from Merchandise Buying and Planning to Marketing and IT, to name a few.

So how do you apply? Just keep checking our Job Search Page for our Grad Vacancies, or sign up for alerts and we'll let you know when something becomes available. Simple.

Graduate development

We also firmly believe in the development of our graduates, and the idea of home-grown talent. As such, we have designed and packaged bespoke development programmes for a number of key functions in the business, for example Merchandise Buying, Merchandise Planning, IT, and Store Management.

Each programme has been carefully constructed, using the full suite of internal and external courses on offer through our mrpAcademy. The programmes vary in length but generally cover the critical first 12-18 months of your time in the business. Your development will follow a blended learning approach incorporating formal classroom courses, online courses and most importantly on-the-job training with assessments throughout.

So bring your passion, and a willingness to work hard and we will give you the tools you need to be successful in your new-found space!
