Arcadia is the UK’s largest privately owned fashion retailer and we are made up of eight of the high street’s best-loved fashion brands: Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Topman, Topshop, Wallis, Miss Selfridge, Evans and Outfit. We’re a global force in fashion. Dynamic and diverse, our team is the best in the business. With over a century of fashion under our belts, we’re looking to the future with confidence. Then there’s our unique culture: where play works. Life here is vibrant, challenging and fast-moving. Our people and development set us apart.
We’ve got what smart young things need for an exciting career. Our Year 12 work experience programme provides young people the chance to join any one of our business areas and play a part in the live projects that make our business thrive. All whilst gaining must-have work skills, a chance to meet new people, and above all, a career head start.
For those looking to get stuck into work straight out of school we offer a Level 4 Merchandising Apprenticeship programme; a two year course developed in partnership with the Fashion Retail Academy. Our Apprenticeship programme will help set up your career for the longer-term. As well as learning on the job, you’ll get the chance to accessorise your style with professional development. You’ll be working towards a Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship qualification in Business Administration, accredited by City & Guilds. When qualified you should be all set to take up a Merchandise Administration Assistant role here at Arcadia. Make no mistake, we take work very seriously, but we have a lot of fun doing it, too! You’ll be working with friendly, passionate people. A graduate buddy will show you the ropes, plus you’ll learn from more experienced colleagues, and hang out with other apprentices in the same boat!
