About this job

Job description

This is a 12-month training programme with a real difference. It throws you straight into the deep end of retailing and covers every aspect of management from store operations to financial administration, from logistics to property management.


You'll start with in-store training and learn the business from the ground up. No other retail training programme gives you so much responsibility so early inyour career.


In this role, you have to be prepared to do whatever it takes to complete the job. You need to embrace responsibility and not shy away from making decisions; most of which you’ll make with complete autonomy.


What’s more, rarely will you find two days are the same. Throughout the 12-month program, you’ll spend time learning all the ins and outs. At times, that means stacking shelves and cash handling; other times, you’ll find yourself developing and leading your own teams to achieve exceptional levels of performance.


After you finish your 12 months’ of training, you’ll be ready to take on your own portfolio of 3-5 stores, including 40-60 staff. How far you go from here – and how you get there – is all up to you.



  • At least 3 years’ business experience
  • A university degree
  • Strong leadership
  • People management skills
  • Articulate communication
  • The drive and passion to develop and inspire your team


Rewards and remuneration

  • An $88,000 starting salary, rising in stages to $135,000 (inc. super) after four years
  • A fully expensed company car
  • Five weeks’ annual leave
  • Strong career opportunities within store operations, logistics, purchasing, financial administration, I.T., property and buying
  • Prospects for Directorship within five years
