If you’re looking for the best start to your career then this is the place to be. We’ve created our Up & Coming apprenticeship and internship programmes for ambitious and innovative school leavers, university students and graduates.
Our programme will support you as you embark on your career, giving you the support and training you need to get off to a flying start. We’re looking for candidates who are keen to learn and contribute to our ambitious plans, playing their part in our purpose to make good things easily accessible to more people.
Our IT apprenticeship programme, which started last summer, gives our apprentices the opportunity to learn through hands-on experience of working across three key areas – business analysis, testing and software engineering. The programme is aimed at candidates that have recently completed A levels or equivalent qualifications.
As part of the apprenticeship you will receive all the support and training you need to achieve your level three and level four qualification in IT, as well the opportunity to develop your career further with us.
We run an intern programme for undergraduates who choose to do a year in industry . You’ll get the chance to work in one of our departments, like ecommerce or product, for your placement year and benefit from hands-on experience in your chosen career. We realise how valuable this is to help kick start your career, so we’ll provide you with the best development and support to ensure you get the most out of your time with us.
Every day I have the opportunity to broaden my knowledge and skillset, whilst helping to deliver a world-class retail experience to around 4 million customers.
Jack Benson, apprentice
So far Shop Direct has exposed me to so many different technologies and has helped me grow and develop myself not just within my day to day job and my university course but also within the business. I’ve met so many interesting people and everyday I’m still learning new things about the company and how I can better myself to help Miss Very.
