Training & development

At the Co-operative Food, we are dedicated to developing the knowledge, skills and capabilities of all our employees so we can deliver excellent service and great standards to our customers.

Whether you apply for one of our job vacancies as a Customer Team Member, Team Leader or Manager, we will provide a range of training to support you, from your first day and throughout your career.

Our in-store buddies provide you with practical training and advice to welcome you into your role, and our unique e-learning programme provides a learning platform to further develop your knowledge and skills in your role.

We recognise that learning does not stop with induction and that is why our dedicated team of Operational Trainers offers a variety of internal and external courses for all aspects of our Food business. Our People Management courses and Co-operative Way Team Manager and Store Manager Programmes provide you with the knowledge and leadership skills to develop further, as well as the opportunity to gain a number of qualifications along the way.

The Co-operative Food has always been about people: our customers, the communities we serve and our employees. So if you have the commitment, drive and enthusiasm to succeed, and you want to share in our success, then our training and development opportunities will be ‘good for you’.
