Commercial Associate

Interested in becoming a skilled commercial operator? Want to study towards a professional qualification, gain transferrable skills, and build real-life work experience? Join us on our Commercial Associate apprenticeship scheme and you can do both.

Drive our commercial performance 

Data analysis. Campaign planning. Budget monitoring. Project management. Join our Trading team, as a Commercial Associate Apprentice, and gain exposure to all this and more! By the end of the scheme, you’ll have a great understanding of the products we sell and will be able to provide skilled support for our commercial activities.  


Build skills for the future  

As this is a multifaceted role, you’ll be working across multiple teams within our business, even with a variety of stakeholders. Learn how to:  

  • Monitor commercial performance  
  • Use data to analyse trends  
  • Make recommendations based on performance 
  • Use analysis to recommend and implement new offers and promotions  


What we look for  

Influencing, highly organised individuals with outstanding communication skills. This role is based in a fast-paced department, so we need someone who is comfortable asking questions, has the confidence to ask for help when it’s needed, take initiative and hit the ground running. If you’re happy to multi-task, able to stay calm under pressure and enjoy data analysis, you’ll thrive in this role. The role does have an administrative element – so a good understanding of Microsoft Office, particularly Excel, is vital. 

We’re 100% committed to having a workforce that represents every part of our society, so we’re keen to hear from candidates of all backgrounds and circumstances. The only barrier to applying would be if you didn’t have the right to work in the UK and were unable to obtain it without our support.  


What is involved with studying for an apprenticeship? 

Your apprenticeship is made up of learning on the job, but also gaining the academic skills to put into practice in your day-to-day job.  As a result, you’ll complete the apprenticeship as part of a structured learning programme alongside working in the role. The learning programme is made up of a suite of modules and milestones and you’ll be required to evidence your work against these modules via tasks and assignments. For some apprenticeships, you may also undertake additional technical qualifications, which include studying for, and taking an exam. Once you have completed your modules and milestones, you’ll then move to your End Point Assessment (EPA) which is typically made up of an interview and a project. Once you pass this stage, you will receive your apprenticeship qualification with us.
