WHAT DOES IT INVOLVE?

What better way to boost your career prospects than by spending 10 weeks working on a real project with real responsibilities as part of our business leadership summer placement programme?

The programme places you at the frontline of our business, where you’ll be working to support our brands. This will give you exposure to a wide range of operations and the opportunity to work with many different kinds of people.

It will definitely take a lot of hard work and initiative on your part. But in return you get to develop skills that help you really stand out from the crowd. And if you do well, you could even be returning to university with an offer to join our graduate scheme.

There will be lots of people on hand to support you during your time here including:

  • Graduate talent manager – responsible for overseeing your performance and development

  • Buddy – a previous graduate or summer placement participant who can help you settle in and answer any questions you may have

  • Line manager – who will have specific experience in your business area

  • Graduate talent team – who will always be there to help you get the most out of your placement

You can find out more about what being a future business leader involves on our graduate programme page

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

We look for proactive, can-do students who have a genuine desire to learn about our business and industry.

The best thing about the summer placement was how much responsibility I was given. Right from the start, I had full ownership of projects that I knew would make an impact on the business, and would continue to do so after my ten weeks were up. You’re pushed out of your comfort zone, which is great – it helps you to develop skills you didn’t know you had.
