The eCommerce Trading and Merchandising graduate programme is designed to give graduates so that graduates get a rounded understanding of how our trading and merchandising teams operate, getting exposure to the commercial elements. The eCommerce team at Dixons Carphone develops the website, from a user experience and development perspective to what propositions we have and how they look for our customers. It’s about being innovative with what we offer and making it easier for our customers to shop with us. They are responsible for the commercial return of our online platforms. The purpose of this particular programme will give graduates the experience of the eCommerce shop floor and experience of how the trading function works and how we merchandise or range. The graduates would also have an accelerated learning plan supported by their graduate network, a social learning platform that supports a self-directed learning culture, mentors and planned development activities giving exposure to senior leaders and experience of high level projects.


Graduates will have a comprehensive and exciting induction into our business. They will get an overview into how the business works, meet with some senior leaders and start their development journey. Most importantly, they will experience what our customers experience by spending time in our retail stores, visit our largest distribution centre, experiencing our contact centres and delivering products to our customers’ homes.

Once they have completed their induction they will have a functional induction. This is where they will begin to build relationships with their network and stakeholders, begin to understand their objectives and understand the structure. They will also be given any technical training or development that will be required from the offset.


The graduates will have a number of rotations across both trading and merchandising as well as access to the wider eCommerce function. Graduates will also get experience across both the Dixons and Carphone Warehouse platforms enabling them to see how the whole function operates.

End roles
