The development and growth of Trainees is a key focus for the Group as a whole. We believe in home-grown talent, and as such we have designed and packaged bespoke development programmes for a number of key functions in the business, for example Merchandise Buying, Merchandise Planning, IT and Store Management.
Each programme has been carefully constructed, using the full suite of internal and external courses on offer through our mrpAcademy. The programmes vary in length, but generally cover the critical first 12-18 months of your time in the business. The programmes are split over specific phases, each building on the next. Your development will follow a blended approach, and will incorporate formal classroom courses, online courses and most importantly, ‘on the job’ application with assessment throughout.
All of this, is designed to equip you with critical skills required to establish yourself within your respective function in the Group.
