Our purpose built and award winning Head Office building in Bradford forms the central base for many of our supporting functions. Approximately 2,500 people work here and hundreds more visit every day, so the site is constantly buzzing. Accommodating a large atrium, canteen, coffee bar and various 'break out' areas, there are lots of places to get together with colleagues. Graduates on our Marketing, Group Wide, Buying, IT & Business Change, Finance, Property and Technical schemes will predominantly be based here.
Having started life in 1899 as a Bradford based market stall, we have grown into the Morrisons of today - the UK's 4th largest supermarket, boasting a network of nearly 500 stores. We are continuing to expand with the roll out our Convenience and New Store opening programmes and are introducing our new format ‘Stores of the Future’ across our network to rave reviews from customers and the industry alike!
We're proud to be different - we sit manufacturing at the heart of our vertically integrated business enabling us to guarantee "freshness from field to fork" in a way that none of our competitors can. 90% of the fresh food in-store has been produced by one of our 18 sites, making us the UK's 2nd largest fresh food manufacturer. And we keep on adding. We have recently acquired Flower World in Derby, which supplies all our in-store florists, and with our newest acquisition of our Grimsby fish site, making us the only UK supermarket to process its own fish, we now believe this makes our Graduate schemes second to none.
Working closely with Manufacturing and Supply Chain, it's the job of our c.8,500 strong Logistics team to get the goods we produce into our ever growing number of stores as quickly as possible and we do this in the shortest lead times in the industry. Our 9 state of the art Regional Distribution Centres spread from Stockton in the North to Bridgwater in the South and cover over 6 million square feet – another reason why Graduates love the challenge of this scheme.
