Most graduates will know of the Boots brand because of their high presence on the UK high street.

The brand has a great heritage as well as a passion for serving customers and have recently joined with Walgreens in America in order to increase the strength of the business.

There are well over 2,500 stores in the UK and graduates are offered the chance to get involved and develop themselves into future leaders within the business. Boots are looking for graduates with a degree in finance or retail (although not essential)  that want to help drive the company forward in return for excellent training and rewards.

Boots Graduate Talent Programmes

As the UK’s leading pharmacy-led health and beauty retailer and one of the country’s most trusted household names we’re evolving in the ever changing world of retail and the future’s looking bright. To help us succeed we need a strong team who love driving business performance by creating those “feel good” moments for our customers.

We have six exciting, involving and evolving programmes in Retail Management, Brand, Buying and Marketing, Finance, Technology, Supply Chain and Operations – so you can choose the right one for you.

With the Retail Management Programme, you’ll be developed as a store leader capable of offering the legendary care our customers expect each time they walk into a store.

Or maybe the Brand, Buying and Marketing Programme is for you. You’ll explore how to develop, source and market Boots’ renowned brands, including No.7 and Botanics, as well as a huge range of external brands.

As a Finance Programme Graduate we offer more than just experience in financial accounting, management information and business partnering. You’ll be a crucial part of the department creating the business framework for now and the future. We also fund the relevant qualifications, either ACA or CIMA while you’re on the programme, and you’ll have the opportunity to work in an international role.

On the Technology Programme, you’ll be driving IT solutions to meet the demands of this fast growing business now and in the future.

This year we’ve introduced programmes in Supply Chain and Operations. On these you’ll see how the business responds to the ever-changing customer needs, driving loyalty & sales to increase our market share. It’s a big operation and this is a big opportunity.

If you think you’re right for one of our programmes apply now. While a relevant business, retail or financial degree is ideal, what we’re really looking for is a passion for retail and a desire to drive the company successfully into the future. Develop an amazing career with Boots and realise why we are #Good4Grads.
