Building an inclusive work environment

We celebrate our differences, and recognise the importance of teams reflecting the communities they serve.

We can make adjustments to our interview process according to your needs. And we offer a flexible working environment so you can adjust your hours to suit your personal circumstances. You can find out more about Coop people policies at coop.co.uk/peoplepolicies.

As part of your application youll need to complete an online assessment. It will take you around 12 minutes to complete this test.
