We're helping young people 'Get Into Retail'

We’ve teamed up once again with youth charity The Prince’s Trust to run a three-week employability course. The Get Into Retail scheme aims to give young people the skills and experience they need for their future careers. The course is currently open to applicants aged 16 -25 who are unemployed and looking for work in the retail industry.

Successful applicants will gain vocational experience in Lincolnshire Co-op food stores, learning about customer services, merchandising and working on the tills. As well as this, the group will get the chance to achieve nationally-recognised qualifications in food hygiene and responsible alcohol retailing.

Head of People and Performance Heather Lee said: “Education is important to us and working with The Prince’s Trust on this programme mean we’re helping young people develop skills for their future. If, after spending some time with us, they’re inspired to pursue a career in retail, this programme will have given them a strong start.”

Young people that successfully complete the programme will be offered an interview, with 16 people from previous groups now in employment with us.

So if you’re aged 16-25, unemployed and want to find out more about the Get Into Retail scheme, text ‘Retail’ to or call 07436797246, or alternatively contact Hannah Byrne at Hannah.Byrne@princes-trust.org.uk.
