Graduate Programme - Operations Management at Ocado

Where: England - South East

Deadline: January 15, 2018

Type: Graduate

About the Company:

Ocado is the world’s largest dedicated online grocery supermarket, and a completely independent business, listed in the FTSE 250 index of the London Stock Exchange in 2010. Launching in 2000 with just 3 employees, we now employ over 12,000 people and deliver 260,000 orders a week on average. Every day, our brilliant teams devise innovative solutions that help us to give our customers exactly what they ordered – and more. We win countless consumer awards for our incredible, customer-centric business and our range is the largest of any UK supermarket.

About the Role:

This graduate programme is like no other. From the start you will take accountability for a team of up to 30 operatives and the challenges that our pioneering and highly automated 1.2 million square foot CFCs throw at you. Towards the end of the two year development programme you will reach the level of skill where you will be taking on more and more responsibility within the CFC. It will challenge you! It is a tough environment, our operation is live 24 hours, 7 days a week, so you will need to be flexible to work shift patterns that would include both day and night shifts and weekends. However, the opportunity to be part of the world’s largest online supermarket and to meet the challenge of customers’ expectations in our very unique operating model is guaranteed to be an exciting one!
