Sainsbury's re-launches trainee manager scheme

Sainsbury's has re-launched its trainee manager scheme for new applicants and is offering more than double the number of places than that of last year.

The supermarket is making 150 places available for the scheme which sees trainee managers spend a year learning how to run a Sainsbury's department while being mentored by an experienced store manager. If successful in the training, trainees are then appointed as a Sainsbury's department manager with responsibility for a large team and a multi million pound budget in a Sainsbury's store.

Sainsbury’s said the scheme is open to school leavers and job changers with two A-levels and a passion for retail and customer service.

Gwyn Burr, Sainsbury's customer service and colleague director, said: "We are really pleased to be able to offer more opportunities than ever this year. 250 candidates have been successful on the scheme since we launched in March 2011, and they are already making a difference across our business, managing motivated teams and making decisions on the sales floor every day to help our customers.

"Retail is an exciting, fast-paced sector to work in and one of the biggest employers in this country. It's also rewarding work with flexibility and opportunities for fast progression. A third of our store managers started with us before their nineteenth birthday, showing that if you work hard and have a genuine desire to succeed you can quickly rise to the top."

Applications for the Trainee Manager scheme opened on 16 August and close on 3 September. Sainsbury’s said there will be another opportunity for candidates to apply early next year.
