Taking on part-time work while at university or college can help you to develop valuable skills to pad out your CV, but that is not the extent of its value.
Sainsbury’s offers a variety of university and college graduate opportunities such as career development steps and promotions. As a result of your part-time role, you’re likely to find it much easier to progress into management or any other advanced position within the company for which you work once you graduate. Your student supermarket job could be the start of a huge and exciting career!
There are no specific qualifications that you need to be able to work in a supermarket – though to sell alcohol you must be over 18. Recruiters often look for good numeracy and communication skills and some may ask for GCSEs (or any equivalent qualifications) at grades 9 to 4 (or A* to C), including English and maths – but this isn’t a given.
If you’re looking for opportunities during the holidays or an opportunity to support yourself while studying full time, a supermarket may be a great place to apply. You’ll develop skills that will be invaluable for your future career, you’ll enjoy highly flexible hours that will fit around your studies and terms, you’ll save a great amount of travel time and expenses, you’ll make money while you study and your career will receive a huge boost.
Supermarket positions can be highly practical for students, so sending in an application can open some very exciting doors for you.
