Hints & Tips

Our recruitment process is fair and honest just like us. We’ve some great hints and tips that will help you with your application, whether you are applying for Morrisons or just generally need some help and advice on applying for a role.

Applying online

When applying for one of our schemes, it’s important to think about your strengths and how your skills, knowledge and experience fit the role you’re applying for.

It’s also a good idea to re-read your application before you submit it to make sure you’ve included everything you want to. And so you can double check there are no spelling mistakes, either!

You should also check the closing dates of our schemes and try to get your application in as early as you can so you can be one of the first to be invited to an assessment centre.

Writing your CV

  • You should tailor your CV to the role and make sure it’s complete and up to date
  • Make sure you mention your education, qualifications, work experience, training, hobbies and any projects, awards or voluntary activities you’re proud of.


For some of our schemes we use video interview. Video interviews speed things up, cut out travel and help us to get to know you better.

Just relax, be yourself and remember:

  • Dress smartly and be confident and positive
  • Settle yourself somewhere quiet where you won’t be interrupted
  • Rehearse by talking to a friend or recording and playing back a mock interview
  • Test your kit to make sure your webcam works
  • Have notes handy but keep as much eye contact as possible
  • Talk clearly - Treat it as a normal interview.

Preparing for your interview

  • It helps to do your research and read up on the role and what we do
  • Re-read your CV and think about why you’d be good for the role and times you’ve displayed the skills and behaviours we’re looking for
  • Take a deep breath and keep calm – nobody knows you better than you
  • Think about any questions we may ask so you can prepare your answers
  • Plan your journey so you arrive on time. You don’t want to rush or be late.
