Buying & Merchandising Apprenticeship Programme 2023

Fashion Retail Academy

Job Overview

Legends of tomorrow learn from the best

Are you a legend in the making? Want to build your legacy now, straight out of school? Then join our Level 4 Buying and Merchandising Apprenticeship, developed in partnership with the Fashion Retail Academy.

Become immersed within our Clothing & Home business as you work on real Buying and Merchandising projects from day one. This could mean developing new ranges, speaking to suppliers from across the world, contributing to our market success, learning from experienced colleagues, and utilising your creative and analytical abilities to turn ideas into reality. If you love to shop and know what customers want, you’re already a step ahead.

On this apprenticeship, you’ll analyse data, pinpoint the trends that drive sales, help to allocate stock, monitor and renew sales and stock levels, and provide general administrative support to the team – depending on your current rotation. It’s a key opportunity within your career to harness your passion for retail and use it to drive results.

Every six months, you’ll move to a different area within Buying and Merchandising, giving you an in-depth understanding of how each team operates. And at least once a month, you’ll have a training day at the Fashion Retail Academy and you will be working toward an accredited Level 4 Buying & Merchandising Apprenticeship.

Once qualified, you’ll be all set to take on a merchandise admin assistant or buying admin assistant role. No matter where you want to take your varied career with us, this two-year apprenticeship gives you the experience, mentoring and guidance to succeed.

Our legends are super-curious about pretty much everything, happy with numbers, great with detail, and have a good, intuitive feel for the commercial world. They’re also excited about fashion, keen to learn and adapt in a fast-paced environment, and resilient if the going gets tough. If that’s you, you could be a future legend, too.

To join our legendary apprenticeship scheme, you’ll need GCSEs in Maths (4-9/C-A*) and English (4-9/C-A*) and must not have completed a Level 4 qualification or above in Fashion Retail, Buying or Merchandising. You also need to have been resident in the United Kingdom for at least the previous three years before the start of the programme or have pre-settled or settled status under the EU Settlement Scheme.
