Co-op Undergraduate Placements – Digital Technology & Data

We’re looking for ambitious undergraduates to join us at Co-op on a 12-month placement. If you’re a great team player who’s keen to build the skills and experience you need to kick-start your career, we can offer you the chance to do just that with a business that always puts people at the heart of its strategy.

We offer a range of placements across different areas within our Digital Technology & Data (DT&D) teams. Whether it’s through the systems that connect our colleagues, the insights that underpin our strategy, or the platforms where we engage with our customers and members – these teams play an important role in delivering our vision of ‘co-operating for a fairer world’.

What we offer

As a Co-op colleague, you’ll do work that matters in an organisation where principles are just as important as profits. You’ll also get a package that includes:

  • A competitive salary of £21,255
  • 28 days holiday (plus bank holidays)
  • 30% off Co-op branded products, and 10% off other brands in our food stores
  • Networking opportunities with key partners and industry leaders

  • Undergraduate Colleague Engagement Co-ordinator – Help to make a real difference to colleague engagement and wellbeing across DT&D – proactively working with colleagues to understand their needs. You’ll support the team with the planning and delivery of activities designed to meet these needs
  • Undergraduate Technology Delivery Associate - Support your colleagues with delivering change across our technology platforms, products, and services – from design to implementation. It’s an exciting time at Co-op when it comes to technology, as we work to be more product-led and built on solid platform technology – and you’ll be a key part of this
