"From the minute you join, you’re given loads of responsibility which allows you to develop really fast."
A massive foodie I wanted to go into the food industry after studying nutrition at university. I’d heard good things about Morrisons as they are really going places. So, it was a great time to join their graduate scheme.
Morrisons is a very fast-paced environment where no two days are the same. You get to spend time at a variety of sites to get to know how everything works and experience different areas of retail. As a trading graduate, I spent my first placement buying everything from olives to pickled eggs. I even got to go to Spain to see how our suppliers grow, process and pack our olives.
I’m now enjoying a new challenge, helping to source and buy exotic fruits. There’s lots of variety here and you can progress quickly. You’re constantly being challenged to achieve the next goal while everybody is so open and supportive.
