Frasers Elevation Programme


What you will be doing

The Frasers Group Elevation Programme will fast-track exceptional individuals to peak performance within two years. You will have the opportunity to impact the commercial performance of our products from inception to retirement, working in each of the teams within the Commercial Division.

You will spend some time working in one of our stores, whether that be Flannels, Sports Direct or Evans Cycles, experiencing the impact of your decisions on customers themselves and see how our products get to the customers hands through working in our state-of-the-art distribution centre.

Your experience will begin with a three-week immersive orientation programme to set you up for unlimited success. We will support your ongoing progression with a learning and development week every two months where you will secure what you have learnt in each of the commercial teams and develop towards becoming a Junior Commercial Manager.

An opportunity like this at Frasers Group is for the fearless.

Through this rotational programme you will work in every area of our commercial division and, at the junior level will support our team to:

  • You will recognise customer trends and adapt our product range/mix to make sure Frasers gets the best commercial value.
  • You will build partnerships with our brands including Nike, Adidas, Under Armour and Sketchers.
  • You will negotiate with suppliers to get the right product, at the right price, just at the right time.
  • You will analyse the commercial performance of our products and make decisions about how to adapt them to meet customer needs.
  • You will apply pricing models to our products so they are the most attractive to the customer.
    You will review the best performing products and move stock to where the customers want it most.
    You will work with our distribution team to ensure that stock is available at the right place at the right time.

What you will have

The potential is massive, the experience unrivalled. To be able to make the most of it you need to live and breathe our principles - you will:

● Think without limits and take the team with you. You will see the possible in impossible and will be open-minded and humble, not afraid to take a risk if it’s the best option for the business.

● Own it and back it. You will take pride in what you do with confidence, but not overconfidence. It’s important you take ownership of your decisions, stand by your convictions and reason with contradiction.

● Not hesitate and act with purpose. You will ask for forgiveness – not permission. You will be comfortable juggling multiple projects acting both decisively and instinctively without support from managers.

● Be commercial and customer-focused. You will be creative and analytical, balancing big picture trends and detailed commercial performance. You will have a forensic commercial mindset, always considering the commercial impact of any decision.

  • You have valid working rights for the EMEA countries.
  • You have 1-year work experience in any industry.
  • You have GCSEs pass grades in Maths and English.
  • You have experience in fashion, design or analytical subjects is of interest – but not essential.

Company benefits: ● Salary starts at £25k and top performers can earn up to £80k within two years ● Free accommodation provided for the first year of the Elevation Programme ● Subsidised food and laundry service
