YOU CAN PROGRESS AS QUICKLY OR AS SLOWLY AS YOU LIKE
Did you know that retail can act as a gateway to loads of different careers? Sanjay and Tracey both started out on the store floor at Asda, but have since gone on to enjoy completely different careers at the supermarket…
Sanjay – Buying Manager
Sanjay has been working at Asda for 10 years. He joined the supermarket’s Lemington Spa branch as a fruit and veg department manager, and has since moved up through the ranks to become a buyer manager. Now he manages half the electronics categories – which is a multi-million pound industry itself! – and travels the world with a team of buyers. He says, “It’s been tough but I’ve loved every minute of it”.
