Introduction to the workplace

Be prepared for your new workplace.

Through quality training and work experience at some of the best retailers in the country, we develop people for retail. We run a range of pre-employment programmes to help you find your next job in retail. Over 55% of trainees move into employment after completing one of our schemes. Our previous participants have found success everywhere, from food retailers to fashion retailers, contact centres and distribution warehouses. As part of the programme we will support you with developing the vital skills required for the workplace. These newly developed skills will then be put into practice through a work placement with a leading retailer. You can search and apply for vacancies in the following sites:
