Tomorrow is International Women's Day – a chance for us to celebrate the achievements of women not just within our organisation, but around the world.
Step in to Spring with Gok Wan’s elegant new collection for Tu at Sainsbury’s
A mere four months have passed since I started as a fresh faced Graduate and today I find myself in the general office of Sainsbury’s Hendon. “How many trolleys do we need to order?” cries the voice of my Store Manager. “When do I get my holiday forms back?” demands another colleague. “Rob, we need you downstairs at the checkouts!” comes a voice over the phone that I have pressed to my ear... Sound chaotic? Not at all, this is just another day as a Sainsbury’s 2020 Graduate.
Two weeks into the launch of our basics campaign – which is about helping our customers rebalance their budget without compromising on provenance and quality – we turn our focus to Sainsbury’s basics smoked salmon trimmings.
Unlike some of the other grad blogs you may have read, mine is based on the 2020 Commercial Placement, which is part of my year in Industry. I didn’t know what to expect from a placement at Sainsbury’s, so I hope that if you’re in the application process this will give you something of an insight!
If Blue Monday has left you feeling like you need a boost, then fear not, we have some fantastic, luxurious products to pamper and leave you feeling refreshed.
If your new year’s resolution is to be healthier, then take a look at our great value fitness range whilst picking up your healthy food shop in store.
I can honestly say that Sainsbury’s has been fantastic in offering support for graduates both for those fresh out of university, and who already have professional experience.
The holidays have almost drawn to a close and, as always, it’s a great time to take stock of the progress we’ve made over the past year towards achieving our environmental targets. But, before doing so my mind is on the present and how we can continue to spread that Christmas goodwill - this time to the environment.
