Graduate Opportunity

Operations Management Graduate Programme

Save to job diary Saved to Job Diary Apply now

We are looking for 70 graduates across 10 schemes to join our dynamic, social and innovative company. Ocado has been growing rapidly and through this we are giving real responsibility and autonomy to our graduates. Graduates will not just fill spaces, but we will give you genuine development opportunities to become future leaders and rise quickly through the company to help shape the future of Ocado.

The Operations Scheme

The Operations team are responsible for running our warehouses (which we call "Customer Fulfilment Centres" or "CFCs") where we take delivery, store, pick and dispatch over a million products a day to customers. The 24 month scheme is loosely split into 4 and sees you manage different teams in areas all over our new automated warehouses.

This graduate programme is like no other. From the start you will take accountability for a team of up to 50 operatives and the challenges that our pioneering and highly automated 1.2 million square foot CFCs throw at you. Towards the end of the two year development programme you will reach the level of skill where you will be taking on more and more responsibility within the CFC. It will challenge you! It is a tough environment, our operation is live 24 hours, 7 days a week, so you will need to be flexible to work shift patterns that would include both day and night shifts and weekends. However, the benefits of this sees you work 4 days on shift and then 4 days off!

Learning & Development

We will support you through the programme towards a full management position with the expectation that you will progress through the organisation to more senior management or more specialised roles in double quick time. Ocado is growing massively, with new CFC’s in the pipeline, this is the time to gain managerial experience as we will expect you to rise quickly as the company does (perhaps more so than other programmes).

What do we need from you?

  • Expecting or obtaining a 2:1 degree in any discipline
  • A- Levels with no specific grade or subject
  • Willing to work shiftwork
  • The knowledge that you will be expected to address large groups, lead by example and manage people to get results and deliver objectives.
