Tom's Story

Posted: 16th of October 2018 by megan@notgoingtouni.co.uk

“I’m able to work, earn and get my degree at the same time without being stuck with student debt.”

“I worked in a coffee shop while waiting to study music at university. And I found I really enjoyed working in retail and serving customers in a fast-paced environment. Morrisons is a great company to work for. So, I applied for the degree apprenticeship retail scheme.

I spent the first six months working in every team in one of our stores. I got hands-on experience and learned what makes the store tick. I’m also studying a professional practice in management degree. Six times a year I spend a week studying at university with colleagues on the same 3-year scheme. The accommodation is paid for and you also get a food allowance.

I’m proud to work for Morrisons. I’m supported and mentored by my store manager. And this is an exciting time of change. Morrisons is a company that’s really going places.”
