Employer of Choice

Our Employer of Choice Commitment is our promise to you that we will continuously strive to be the employer you choose to work with, above all others. We commit to DEVELOP you to maximise your strengths to be the best you can be.

We want you to achieve your full potential, whether that be through learning new skills, providing new experiences, or supporting formal education and qualifications. 

Apprenticeships

In the past year, we have increased the number of colleagues participating in apprentic*eship training from 2 to more than 30.

We are committed to continuing this expansion so that even more of you can benefit from this opportunity to learn and gain formal qualifications that will support your career progression.

“I am really enjoying my learning; having been an Operator for a number of years, I now have the opportunity to see things from both the Operator and Technician perspectives which will help me in my role when I qualify. Completing an Apprenticeship is not easy, but I am dedicated to it and am prepared to put in the hard work that I know will lead me to greater opportunities in the future.” - Harvey Nicholls, Packing

Professional Study

We are proud that our tuition support programme has supported a number of colleagues to complete professional study that will enable them to broaden their knowledge and help them pursue their career goals

Last year we saw colleagues pursue degrees and MBA programmes as well as complete study in their chosen profession.

“The qualification has given me a deeper understanding of the organisation and HR’s role in achieving its vision and objectives. It has also increased my confidence, drive, and motivation. I am proud to work for an organisation that has supported me to achieve a qualification that has provided, and will continue to provide, opportunities for me to develop my career” - Lizzie FitzGerald, Human Resources
