Over 100,000 colleagues ‘Make Morrisons’. So, our Retail People Managers have a really important role to play. Getting stuck into all kinds of people activities right from the start, you'll learn how to run the people function in a store as well as having experience of how to be the Manager in charge of the overall operation.

As our colleagues don’t work 9 to 5 - you won’t either. You’ll work a variety of shifts, including weekends and bank holidays to support our people. You’ll also have the opportunity to complete a level 5 CIPD apprenticeship.

What our 2-year scheme involves

After structured training and shadowing an existing People manager, you’ll gain responsibility for people in one of our stores. You’ll gain a good understanding of the vital role our people team plays and the big impact it makes on improving performance.

As well as gaining hands-on experience in our stores, you could also find yourself with the opportunity to work in one of our other people functions such as manufacturing  logistics or central. Supported every step of the way by mentors, buddies, line managers and our friendly team, your people journey will give you the skills you need to drive our future success and become a great People manager.

What you’ll need

  • To have or be expecting a 2:1 degree
  • A real passion for people management
  • A full UK driving licence
  • To be influential, self-motivated and results-driven
  • Great interpersonal skills and a collaborative, customer focused approach
  • The determination to take ownership of problems and solve them
  • Great communication skills and the ability to lead, influence and build strong working relationships with a diverse team of people
  • Positive attitude, resilient, determined and a great listener and communicator
  • The flexibility to move around the UK to grow your skills in different stores. (You won’t necessarily get to work at your nearest store).
