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

Collaboration skills are first and foremost as you will partner with our buying teams to develop amazing products that delight . With an interest in how we design, fit and produce our products, coupled with a commercial mindset, you'll always have our customers' needs at heart.

You’ll also be a multitasker who can plan and prioritise your own workload - and you’ll bring us integrity, attention to detail, initiative, innovation and sound judgement. If you have all that and more, the Primark placement in Quality is the perfect fit for you.

What you’ll do

Imagine the number of lines in our stores. Then imagine the size of the quality operation it takes to make sure they’re all up to our exacting standards. Here is where you’ll shine. Working alongside product operations teams, suppliers, and key stakeholders, you’ll see that each product meets our high standards and is even better than the customer expected.

Drawing on your existing technical knowledge, you’ll be involved in the product and process side, from building capability to assessing commercial quality, to helping identify and investigate any issues. It’ll see you talking to suppliers and helping the Product Technologist deliver training. So you’ll get an amazing grounding in every aspect of product quality.
