Are you interested in learning more about the UK’s biggest online grocery retailer? Have you ever wondered how we serve 99.8% of customers online?

We welcome all students to this virtual insight day – no prior experience is required to take part.

This session will be delivered over 1 day online and is interactive. You will be asked to participate throughout.

We will help you to understand the online retail market, who are our competitors, how food is ordered online and delivered to customers and our new innovations we are developing. We will share with you some career stories, why colleagues have joined online and how they have developed their careers. We will break off into smaller groups to work through a real-life business scenario and ask you to present back your findings as a group.

So why not come along?
