Apprenticeships

David Jameson Web And Sm

Our 2018 apprenticeship recruitment is now open!

We believe that apprenticeships are a way of attracting talented and enthusiastic people to come and work for Lincolnshire Co-op. Apprenticeships also give individuals 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 established apprenticeship schemes across our business including food, pharmacy and travel. Our apprenticeship programmes are hard work, but also extremely rewarding.

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.

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.
