Find your Co-op job


Who are we looking for?

It takes all kinds of people from all walks of life to make our Co-op work. So, our apprenticeship programmes are open to everyone with the right attitude, enthusiasm and understanding. You’ll feel at home if you have a genuine passion for service, a willingness to learn and develop your career, and a strong sense of community, you could really go places at Co-op.

What makes our apprenticeships different?

We’re always thinking about your career development. You’ll get expert training and coaching; supporting you up to degree level if that’s your goal. You’ll also have opportunities to give back to your community through volunteering and campaigning. We’ll pay you much more than the government’s minimum rate for apprenticeships, and you’ll be entitled to lots of great benefits.

Level 2 Retailer

As a customer team member apprentice you’ll play an important role in your local community. You’ll learn to build strong relationships with colleagues and customers and provide them with the best possible service– getting to know their needs inside and out.

Level 3 Business Administration

To keep growing and investing back in the community, we need team members with real commercial expertise. We’ll equip you with the knowledge and experience to build on your established skills. If you’re keen to progress your career in the future, this apprenticeship can help you achieve your goals.

Level 2 and Level 3 Funeralcare

Customers trust us to look after their loved ones after they’ve passed away. If you’re naturally caring and keen to do something worthwhile, this apprenticeship could be for you. Supporting families when they need it most will give you real satisfaction, and we’ll help you to develop the skills you need to build a uniquely rewarding career.

Level 2 Customer Service Practitioner

There’s a wide range of roles available within this programme. Some are service focused; others are more specialised (in areas like IT, digital, HR, communications and finance). If you’re hard working and adaptable you’ll find the right opportunity for you to realise your full potential.

Application process

At Co-op, we’re passionate about doing great work for the communities we trade in. That means having the right people, from all walks of life and backgrounds, in our team to serve them. Take a look below how to become one of us.
