The Co-operative Group can be considered as the largest ‘ethical’ company in the UK, not because they don’t like to make profit, but simply because they care about the way they go about business.
And with over six million members and an annual turnover of £13 billion you can’t really argue with their success. The Group has a hand in a wide range of sectors, including food, travel, funeral care, banking and insurance.
So you might not be surprised to know that there are lots of opportunities for graduates looking to kick start their career.
You’ll need to have lots of drive, ambition and share their ethical values but in return you can expect the very best experience, training and career benefits in a variety of roles. Graduates are each assigned a mentor within a carefully structured training scheme to really support your development within the Group.
The Co-op Group gets its name from the fact it is founded upon a 'co-operative' business model, meaning the company is run and owned by its members, totaling 6 million.
