About us

Our Apprenticeships go further – and so will you

Young people inspire us every day, and we want to be an inspiration to them too.

For you, our Apprenticeships give you much more than just a job. They’re a key to a career, opening the way to national qualifications and a Group-wide professional development programme, where you’ll earn and learn on the job. And there’s more.

You’ll be paid a full salary, and get the same benefits package as the rest of our colleagues from the day you join.

The best bit, however, has got to be the choice and variety we’re offering. As we’re such a big organisation, you’ll find opportunities across our businesses – including Food, Funeralcare and Legal Services.


The Co-operative way

At the very heart of our business is our ethical foundation. As a co-operative, we exist for the good of our customers, members and communities – and we always have done, since we were founded in 1844.

That said, we’re still highly commercial. After all, the more successful we are, the more we can give back and make a difference.

For us, that’s the beauty of The Co-operative. You can take your career in different directions within one very dynamic and very diverse organisation – and it all starts here.
