Graduate Management Development Programme
Two years. One intensive programme. Huge responsibility. A lot of hard work. And some big rewards. That’s the Lidl Graduate Management Development Programme.
Ours is a no-nonsense, roll your sleeves up, kind of scheme. Starting as a Customer Assistant in one of our 640 stores, you’ll be running a store by the end of your first six months. Then it’s on to a warehouse where you’ll start as a warehouse operative and learn all you need to be a Team Manager six months later., Now you know how we operate, it’s time to specialise – whether that’s in a regional or head office – building and applying your knowledge. And if you’ve put enough in, by the end of it you’ll be a manager in a field you’ve shone at.
It’s a path that takes grit, a great work ethic, a desire to learn and a perfectionist streak. That’s why we expect all our grads to have a 2.1 (or 2.2 plus a postgraduate qualification), impressive people skills and the flexibility to be based within an hour of a Lidl regional warehouse of your choice (so you’ll need a full UK / EU driving license too).
In return, our training and support is second-to-none. The market-leading salary, mobile phone and brand new Audi A4 are nice to have too. But that’s our way of thanking you for the part you’ll play in helping us continue to grow, maintain our challenger brand status and stay one of the UK’s most exciting retail success stories.
We are Lidl. Together, we make it happen.
