Page 3: Selection
The selection process for the Retail Management Trainee Programme has two stages:
- an online application
- attending an assessment centre.
The online application form involves a number of questions. These focus on the competencies required by Retail Management Trainees. Candidates who do well in their answers are invited to an assessment centre.
The selection process at the assessment centre takes place over one day. It involves structured interviews and team activities. Group exercises allow a close analysis of how well someone works with other people. This is a key aspect of retailing. A place on the Retail Management Trainee Programme is offered to candidates who are successful at the assessment centre.
