About the placement

You don’t watch from the side lines around here - you get stuck in. Through hands-on experience and responsibility from the get-go, you’ll gain a vast insight into how our business works and contribute to it on day one. Inspiring, supportive colleagues will make you feel welcome and valued.

We’ll also help you to develop your skill set and grow your potential through supported learning with on-the-job training, masterclasses, and an assigned buddy/mentor.

What you’ll need

Analytical, detail-focussed, self-starter. That’s you. Bring your passion for ethical trading and sustainability and we’ll give you the platform to make meaningful change in the fashion industry. You’re an excellent communicator with strong reporting and analytical skills.

With experience of working with databases, and proficiency in MS Office applications, you’ll take it in your stride, working in a fast-developing, ever-changing environment. If you’re studying towards a degree in ESG, Information Technology, Business Strategy or similar fields, then make your difference on our placement.

What you’ll do

Our business goals will always put planet and people at the heart of it. Here, you’ll support the Ethical Trade and Environmental Sustainability Central Support team in managing their programme specifically in the areas of GDPR and Licensing. This includes responding to general queries from buyers, sourcing, ET Field Teams, suppliers and factories, and all matters concerning labour standards and ethical trade.

You’ll do this all whilst learning more about our function and the different roles and responsibilities. You’ll also collaborate with the ET&ES Technology & Systems team to gain powerful data and information for reporting and analysis.

Why should you apply?

In Primark, we’ve always said everyone’s invited and we’re committed to making everyone feel safe and comfortable to be themselves. We believe that a diverse, inclusive, and accessible environment elevates us all, and enables creative ideas and collaboration to flourish. Because when we work together, we can accomplish so much more.

And yes, this place moves fast, and it’s growing even faster but we’re committed to providing the best, and most socially and environmentally ethical fashion that’s affordable for everyone. Primark Cares is our commitment to reducing fashion waste, halving our carbon footprint, and improving the lives of the people who make our products.

And that’s not all! We’ll take care of you, with flexible working, a comprehensive relocation package, and some of the most genuine people you’ll ever work with. This placement has real impact, you could even see the results of your work, out on the shop floor! Make your CV look amazing and if you wow us, there could be a permanent job up for grabs when you graduate.

Isn’t it time you put theory into practice? We think so.
