Morrisons was originally an egg and butter family run merchant to becoming the UKs fourth largest supermarket group. The organisation also owns abattoirs, fruit and vegetable pack houses, meat and cheese processing plants and bakeries assisting in the supermarket's goal - to be the food specialist for everyone.

Morrisons currently employ over 117,000 staff and serve 10 million customers every week across the UK.

There are 12 different Graduate Programmes available, which are recruited for throughout the year, so there is bound to be something which will interest you:

- Finance
- IT
- Logistics
- Manufacturing
- Marketing
- Merchandising
- Personnel & Training
- Property & Development
- Retail Operations
- Supply Chain
- Trading
- Trading Technical

Morrisons have also teamed up with University of Bradford to develop an undergraduate scheme if you have at least 280 UCAS points from 3 A-Levels you may be eligible for a Foundation Degree in Retail Leadership and Management. You can study for this course whilst working full time at Morrisons and the company will cover all tuition fees.

What is the recruitment process?

You can search for current Graduate vacancies, find out more about the position and apply online via the Morrisons career website

The first stage is to complete the online questionnaire, attach your current CV and submit directly to the company.

If you are considered suitable you will be contacted to arrange a telephone interview where you'll be asked various competency-based questions about your background and work history.

If you pass the telephone interview you will be asked to attend an Assessment Centre to observe you carrying out a variety of individual and group based tasks whilst under observation. You may also be asked to produce a presentation.

If you have been selected, Morrisons will endeavour to let you know as soon as possible.

What do I need to apply?

You will need to have, or expect to receive, at least a 2:1 degree in a suitable course, plus grades above C at GCSE.


This is excellent, nice low GCSE grades (when i say low i mean at least a C - which is what I would expect most "average" students to be able to hit!) and then a degree, which must proves that you can go on to get a degree if you were average at school (well average in my view)


I do agree with Glenys about the "average" GCSE grades, but then like she also mentions, if you have a degree, it proves that you can work above that "average" GCSE level.

Some people don't realise how important it is to get GCSE grades, even though you may go on to do A-Levels and even a degree. Employers and graduate schemes like this will still look at your past qualifications, so it's important to encourage the younger people to work hard from an early age.
