Arcadia is the UK’s largest privately owned fashion retail with eight major brands: Burton, Dorothy Perkins, Evans, Miss Selfridge, Topshop, Topman, Wallis and Outfit. We love giving young talent a chance and we are so excited to be launching our debut Head Office Merchandising Apprenticeship.

So what is it? Well, it’s a real job, providing our Apprentices the chance to turn facts and figures into real business decisions. As a Trainee Merchandise Admin Assistant they will be analysing numbers, pinpointing the data trends that drive sales, helping to allocate stock and reviewing sales and stock levels.

With regular off-site training we are helping to set up our Apprentice’s with a longer-term career, they will be working towards a Level 4 Higher Apprenticeship qualification in Business Administration, accredited by City & Guilds. We have partnered up with the Fashion Retail Academy to deliver our bespoke programme.
