Our teams at Hilmore House (our head office in Bradford) play an important role in making good things happen and that means it’s buzzing with activity. Join us on our two-year Buying Graduate scheme and you’ll have lots of variety including sourcing ranges, negotiating deals and forecasting trade plans. You’ll also play a big role in everything from promotions to product launches, marketing and packaging, all while earning a starting salary of £28,000.

Morrisons | Early Careers

What’s involved?

On our Buying Graduate Scheme you’ll be given early responsibility as an assistant buyer, before quickly training to become a buyer in a specialised product area. You’ll be learning on the job from experienced buyers, get involved in supplier negotiations and go on placements within a store to understand our customers and colleagues. Day-to-day, you could be:

  • Collaborating with suppliers to ensure we’re able to offer the best products at the best costs
  • Sourcing and selecting ranges within your product area to give our customers a great choice 
  • Forecasting sales and trade plans to ensure budgets and project timelines are up to date

Our structured training and the opportunity to work on exciting projects means you’ll have plenty of opportunities to progress and learn while with us. By the end of the programme, you will be ready to specialise in a specialist product area and expand your career as a buyer. 

What you’ll need to join us

We are food makers and shop keepers, and together, we make Morrisons. We’re looking for graduates who have attention to detail, keep up to speed with products and understand competitors and the market, have a drive to succeed and are ready to make some impactful decisions. You need to be a great communicator with strong listening skills and the ability to build relationships with a diverse team of people. Candidates also need a minimum 2:1 in any degree subject and a full UK driving licence. Other key qualities we’d like to see include:

  • A positive outlook
  • Lots of confidence
  • Strong analytical skills
  • Resilience

Make good things happen

Our Graduates get access to all our employee benefits, including MyPerks. This is a reward and benefits scheme that updates regularly with new and exciting offers. Here’s what you could enjoy:

  • 25% cashback on JustEat

We also operate a 4-day working week in Hilmore House, plus one Saturday every 4 weeks.
