About us

Our Apprenticeships go further – and so will you

Young people inspire us, and we want to be an inspiration to them – particularly now when it is such a challenging time to be a young person in Britain.

Creating 2,000 job opportunities through apprenticeships is part of our Inspiring Young People campaign. In fact, they are much more than jobs. They are a key to a career, opening the way to a recognised national qualification and into a Group-wide development programme.

That is not all. You will be paid a salary, and you will get the full employee benefits package right from the start.
The choice we can offer will amaze you because we are such a large and diverse organisation and have opportunities within all our businesses – from Food to Funeralcare, from Pharmacy to Finance, from Travel to Legal Services. That is the beauty of The Co-operative: you can take your career in different directions within one very dynamic and diverse organisation.

Dynamic, but different

Like any business, we want ours to be a commercial success. However, even more important is the way we do business and the way we use our profits. We believe we should offer our customers both value and values – which makes us rather different.
