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. It’s also what gives our graduate buyers such a brilliant head start in their careers.

What you’ll be doing

Our two-year scheme gives you early responsibility in a fast-paced area. You’ll start off as an assistant buyer, negotiating with suppliers, working on the trading floor and going on in-store placements. Before long, you’ll become a buyer. Then you’ll be looking after a category. Throughout, you’ll have lots of opportunities to impact on our success and help make us even more competitive.

A career as a buyer offers plenty of variety. In the long term, you could be doing everything from sourcing and selecting ranges to playing a major part in marketing and product launches.

What you’ll need to join us

Our colleagues ‘Make Morrisons’. You’ll be no exception. So what we’re looking for is not just a minimum 2:1 degree but also the ability to buy, sell and innovate in ways that increase sales and customer satisfaction. This includes being able to understand the fine detail of agreements and keep up to speed with products, competitors and the market. You’ll also need confidence, drive and resilience, as well as a good head for figures and plenty of common sense. Naturally, you must be able to build great relationships with colleagues and suppliers.
