Morrisons is a vertically integrated retailer that buys, makes, distributes, and sells. It’s unique in the respect that it owns the majority of its own supply chain, and as a result, has full knowledge about what it’s selling to its customer base. Since starting life as a market stall back in 1899, the business has gone on to have outlets across the country and employ around 132,000 staff.
As Morrisons launches more M local stores and strives to carve out a reputation in the online market, there’s never been a more exciting time to start a career with the retailer. The ethos of ‘we’re all in this together’ means that personal development is supported and encouraged, and always with the backing of the whole team. It’s very much a family business, and the founding family still own around 15% of the operations.
Graduate programmes at Morrisons are available in Marketing, Buying, IT & Business Change, Property, Retail, HR, Manufacturing, Logistics, Supply Chain, Group Wide, Finance, and Technical. All routes offer hands-on experience and the opportunity to quickly progress to senior management level.
As well as robust training and development, successful applicants are rewarded with a competitive salary, staff discount, and access to a profit share scheme. To be in with a chance of securing a position, graduates should be passionate about retail, enthused by a challenge, and have competitive grit and determination.
Morrisons own most of their supply chain, making them the UK’s second largest fresh food producer and giving them full knowledge of the provenance of their food. As a result, Morrisons can vouch for their quality and have the shortest lead times in the business.
