Ready to own your career in an ever-growing fashion hub? Then take on a Primark placement starting in Summer 2023. This is your chance to grab valuable experience in a global company that truly feels like a family. You’ll have real projects with real autonomy. You’ll get to know incredible experts who make our fashion a reality. And you’ll gain off-the-scale exposure, making a huge impact for our customers and your future.

Want it? Then own it on our student placement programme.

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

You’ll be a great communicator with a passion for fashion, a unique interest in products and trends, and a strong awareness of the industry - especially what’s happening on the high street, catwalks and on social. You won’t be short of initiative either.

In fact, you’ll be happy to handle your own workload with the support of others. If you’re studying Fashion Buying, Fashion Design or a Commercial-based degree, the Primark placement in Buying is the perfect fit for you.

What you’ll do

After your induction, you’ll dive right in! You’ll learn about the department by doing real work with your teams on tasks and projects. A store placement will teach you how stock moves and departments are laid out — and give you a feel for the customer experience that you can only get by being there. With all this great prep, you’ll be able to take on real responsibility from day one!

You’ll strengthen relationships and share your ideas at team meetings, grow what you know at masterclasses, and have regular catch ups with your assigned mentor and line manager to support your development. So when you present to your Director at the end of your placement, you won’t be short of things to say.

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.
