Talent & Development
Talent Management, Training and Development
Investing in our people to help them fulfil their potential and progress in their careers, is something we take seriously here at B&M.
Our dedicated training team will support all our people to be the best they can be and for those of you who have a desire to progress and work hard for promotion, B&M will ensure, where possible that we help you to do so.
With a range of different learning and training opportunities from structured training programmes, master classes, e-learning, monthly top tips and supporting nationally-recognised qualifications, we invest in you to grow our own talent. On the job, off the job, online or in a 1:1, training is flexible, convenient and more importantly, it’s always fun to learn with B&M.
What will my first few weeks be like?
To make sure you get off to a great start, we have a successful induction programme that will help you to feel part of the B&M family in no time and with regular catch ups with your line manager, we hold your hand to make sure you settle in, get to know your role, discuss your achievements and how you are doing in your new career.
You’ll then receive regular training on any new procedures and initiatives as they are introduced and, once a year, you’ll have a performance appraisal or 1:1 catch up depending on your job role with your manager.
We offer a range of resources to support your development and, as a new manager at B&M, you’ll get the opportunity to spend time working with an experienced manager to learn the ropes. The training team offer courses to equip managers with all they need to be great retailers. We also run workshops for our existing managers to keep their skills up-to-date.
A structured Management Development Programme is offered to those who are keen to make their way up the career ladder and as we take talent seriously at B&M, we can offer lots of opportunities for progression.
