Apprenticeships

We believe that apprenticeships are a way of attracting talented and enthusiastic people to come and work for Lincolnshire Co-op.

Apprenticeships also give young people who want to develop their skills the chance to earn a wage while they learn, both on the job and through training.

We have a number of apprentices in our business working in areas including food, pharmacy, travel - we're launching apprenticeships in post offices this year too. Find out more about the different types of apprenticeship below.

Food shopping is one of the most essential purchases that people will make. From picking up a single pint of milk, to filling an over-flowing trolley, food retailers are swamped with customers!

Our Retail Apprenticeship programme is the perfect starting point for anyone wanting to work in food retail. During this 18 month training scheme we will support you to gain a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Retail Skills, as well as providing you with hands on experience in a number of our food stores.

As a retail apprentice there will never be a dull moment. You can expect to carry out a whole range of jobs, from assisting customers on the shop floor, handling their purchases at the till, to managing stock in the warehouse to ensure we’ve received the correct quantities and it is appropriately stored.

Working in a pharmacy is not just about dispensing medicines, they are an important part of the local community and are often the first point of contact for customers looking for help and advice on lifestyle and health issues. 

This apprenticeship is ideal for anyone interested in working in this area of health and community care.

During this two year training programme we will support you to gain a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Pharmaceutical Sciences, as well as providing you with hands on experience in a number of our pharmacy branches.

Your role as a pharmacy apprentice will include selling over the counter medicines, collecting prescriptions, ordering and storing pharmaceutical stock, and providing information on symptoms and products to customers.

The role of a travel agent is an exciting one! From long haul trips of a lifetime, to family friendly breaks, or even romantic getaways, your primary task is to create memories for your customers and make their dreams come true.

If you have a passion for travel and holidays and want to launch your career within the travel industry, why not join our Travel Apprenticeship programme?

During this 18 month training programme we will support you to gain a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Customer Services, as well as providing you with hands on experience in a number of our travel branches.

As one of our travel apprentices you will be working within a fun but fast paced and sales focused environment, where no two days are the same. Your role will include arranging flights, insurance, accommodation and those extras that ensure the holiday goes smoothly, as well as advising customers on travel arrangements, collecting and processing payments, and managing the customers’ holiday administration.

There is much more to working in a post office then selling stamps! Our post offices provide a number of valuable and essential services to the local community. With over 20 million people, that’s a third of the UK population, using post office services every week it's a busy environment.

If you have a passion for customer service then our Post Office Apprenticeship scheme could be perfect for you. During this 18 month training programme we will support you to gain a Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Customer Services as well as providing you with hands on experience in a number of our post office branches.

As a post office apprentice you could be selling financial products and services, dealing with letters and parcels, paying out pensions and benefits, accepting bill payments, dealing with vehicle registrations, checking passports and driving licence applications and selling travel insurance and foreign currency.
