Our two-year graduate scheme offers you the opportunity to undertake three or four rotations through our vital business areas. You will work in both project-based and operations-focused roles, and you will accompany senior staff on at least one international trip.

Placements may include experiences in:

  • Merchandising
  • Product development
  • Sourcing
  • Quality and production
  • Compliance and sustainability
  • Artwork
  • Logistics

Graduates with specializations in areas aligned with our corporate departments are also encouraged to apply. The placement rotation allows you to continue working in your area of interest and expertise while being exposed to a variety of roles.

We are committed to your professional development, and alongside skills-based online training courses, you will be assigned a buddy and a mentor for the duration of the programme. At the end of the programme, we invite you to present a summary of your experience to our company directors. From there, you’ll be assigned to a role within the company that best fits you, your skills and the experience that you have gained during the programme.

How to apply

Applications for the graduate programme open in January and close at the end of March, with the yearly programme commencing in September. The scheme is open to graduating students, or to those who have recently graduated but may have deferred work for a year.

To be considered for entry, you will need to have a 2:1 degree or higher or a GPA of at least 3.3.

Shortlisted applicants will be asked to attend a half-day assessment consisting of a case study, presentation and interview.

Adapting to a new role for every 6 months is quite challenging, but it also gave me refreshing insights and new experiences each time."
