New Careers Website

Posted by Dan Poole | 30/10/2014 | Category: Corporate

It’s never been more straightforward to apply and receive information about all the latest career opportunities at the Central England Co-operative, thanks to the launch of our brand new and improved careers website.

The intuitive layout of the website and the enhanced features create a user friendly experience meaning you can now:


·         read about our many business areas and explore different roles

·         find out more information about who we are and our ethical approach

·         filter your job search by location and department to  show the roles relevant to you

·         receive job alerts that are specifically tailored to where you live and what you’re looking for

·         register for job alerts in the new stores we are planning to open.


Let’s take a moment to look at some of the other useful changes that can be found on our updated website to help improve your job search experience, and why you should consider joining our society:

CV Builder

CV builder – a head start that makes all the difference


It’s no secret that it’s often difficult to know what to say or even how to say it when applying for a job, especially if you don’t have an active CV or need to update some other necessary information. At Central England Co-operative, we want to help make it as easy as possible for you to stand out and make a great first impression.

Our new CV builder is available to anyone who registers on our new website, providing an appropriately styed template and step-by-step advice so that you can clearly identify all of your skills, achievements and qualifications. Once complete, finding and applying for the right job will only be a quick mouse click away.

Individual Like You

Valuing the contribution of every individual


Central England Co-operative has always valued Diversity and Inclusion in everything we do in order to better understand and reflect the needs of the diverse communities we serve. Fresh perspectives and different outlooks are celebrated across our many business areas and range of roles.

Embracing different experiences and appreciating independence allows us to be more innovative, recognise creative potential and supports the ethics and values at the very core of our business.  By working together as an effective team with mutual respect and a shared commitment for what we stand for, Central England Co-operative can make a real positive impact on the lives of our members, customers and colleagues.

Although we are not where we want to be from a diversity point of view, we believe that openly publishing some of our key statistics will help us address the challenges we face to achieve our goals.

Apprenticeship Schemes

Learning opportunities for everyone


No matter what your educational background, our varied apprenticeship schemes are also accessible for anyone over the age of 16. These programmes are proven to help the unemployed into work or to retrain for a new career, gaining new skills and a nationally recognised qualification in the process.

Developing new talent wherever it exists and investing in learning opportunities in the workplace are crucial for a better tomorrow. This is why Central England Co-operative rewards the efforts and achievements of our apprentices with the full rate of pay for the role they are training towards.
