The role is to work closely with the Talent Development / L&D Team to deliver and facilitate a range of training initiatives with a focus on early careers - graduates and apprentices.

It's a hugely fast paced retail organisation and therefore your ideas and your ability to deliver L&D initiatives that enable their success need to be equally impressive.

An element of the role will be strategic; engaging with the business, undertaking TNA and designing relevant leading edge L&D programmes, with the focus being the implementation and delivery of those early careers training programmes mostly in London but with some travel.
