This apprenticeship will show you what it takes to be a buyers’ assistant as you provide admin support to teams of buyers who are out looking for the next big-selling fashion or furnishing items. You can expect to help co-ordinate all the product samples the team receives, and to get involved in strategy meetings. There’ll be study time too, of course, as you’ll be working towards an accredited level 4 apprenticeship qualification in buying and merchandising which will involve training at the Fashion Retail Academy twice a month.
Our flexible off-price business model means that finance here is completely different to other retailers. It’s so much more than number crunching. Agility and flexibility are key to ensuring our finance function keeps pace with daily changes to what we sell and the need to quickly seize new opportunities to surprise and delight our customers.
As a finance apprentice, you’ll get training and experience in all areas of transactional finance, including accounts payables, expense payables, sales audit and cash accounting. And you’ll be working towards an AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualification at levels 3 and 4.

You will receive expert knowledge and training both on the job and with a top-quality external training provider, either face to face in a classroom setting or online. You will be surrounded by support from your peers, manager and mentor. The qualification should take approximately 18 months to complete and will be fully funded by us.
