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 from day one. Inspiring, supportive colleagues will make you feel welcome and valued.

And 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

Curious, detail-focussed, organised, self-starter. That’s you. You’re a great communicator who knows how to influence with passion and energy, exciting people in your vision. With a positive mindset, you’ll take it in your stride working in a fast-developing, ever-changing environment.

You’ll also have an understanding of global macro trends and how it influences customer behaviour. You won’t be short of initiative either. In fact, you’ll be happy to handle your own workload with the support of others.

What you’ll do

This is where creativity, ideas and business collide. Here, you’ll help deliver new and evolving consumer trends, creating a vision of tomorrow to inform decisions for today. This includes collaborating with the Head of Innovation and the Future Trends Manager to understand upcoming and evolving consumer trends and how this will impact consumer behaviour, shopping habits and Primark as a business.

You’ll support with research, carrying out forecasting and predicting global macro trends. We’ll also look to you to challenge perceptions of how things are by developing concepts and actions, and translating ideas into simple, actionable insights through presentation decks.

You’ll also work with external partners and consumer focus groups to support findings and enhance concepts. With weekly team brainstorm sessions to spark up new ideas and concepts, this role is packed full of bold thinking. You’ll help drive business and brand growth into the future.

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.
