Earn while they learn; Degree Apprenticeship opportunities with Morrisons 


Now students don’t have to choose between starting a career or continuing their studies. With a Degree Apprenticeship they can do both!
At Morrisons, we are giving hard-working school and college leavers the chance to have the best of both worlds.
While working with us and preparing for a brilliant career within our unique food retail business they’ll be studying towards a Bsc (Hons) Management and Business at the University of Bradford or a BA (Hons) Retail Leadership Integrated Degree at Sheffield Hallam University (depending on the Degree Apprenticeship).
Not only do we pay all course fees, but Degree Apprentices also get to work and earn a salary while studying – so money is never a concern.


Corporate Degree Apprenticeships
Build up a good understanding of our business and industry by working on placements in areas such as trading, supply chain, HR, marketing, loss prevention and property.
Retail Degree Apprenticeships
Learn about our store trading operations and systems to provide customers with a great shopping experience and to keep your store running smoothly.

Balancing work and a degree course will be challenging. But we offer at least half a day leave a week to concentrate on university studies. And, in return they’ll gain full chartered membership of the CMI (Chartered Management Institute).
What’s more, they’ll have the experience needed to step into a management role after three years and become one of our future leaders.


What are we looking for?
