Area Manager Programme


Meet our Area Managers

From meetings at the local RDC through to mentoring colleagues, life as an Area Manager is incredibly busy, but wonderfully rewarding. Of course, our "Year Like No Other" provides a great insight into what you’ll be doing throughout your first year. But what is life really like when you’re in charge? Well, who better to tell you than our actual Area Managers? And you can read all about them below.


"You take each day as it comes 

and being able to react to

whatever pops up is vital".

 "The store training is the best foundation for this role. Because you get to see how challenging the work is, you can empathise with the store staff while gaining a vast amount of knowledge. The level of responsibility exceeded my expectations, especially when you're responsible for running a store on your own. Its challenging, rewarding work and you never know what the day will bring".

"I wanted a job with more variety, more responsibility and where hard work is recognised and rewarded".

"I was hugely impressed by how well structured the programme was, and I was also taken aback by the positive culture within the company. I received sufficient help from two friendly and experienced teams while in-store, and had workbooks and an online interface to support my learning. I was also given a mentor who was more than happy to answer any questions I had".
