We are the largest independent retailer across Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. We operate at the heart of our communities and always aim to provide excellent customer service. It is our members that own our business and we feel this makes us really different.
Every year, part of our profit goes back to our members as dividend, part of it is invested back into the community, and the rest goes back into ensuring we can carry on doing what we do for years to come.
We are an incredibly diverse business. Alongside our Food Stores, we also provide Funeral, and Travel services. We have Security, Property and Events divisions as well as a whole head office function! So whether you want to be a Project Manager, Head of Brand or work in retail…. the East of England Co-op could have the career for you!
Apprenticeships are a fantastic way to build confidence, learn new skills and obtain qualifications, all whilst earning a wage. Apprenticeships are work-based, paid training programmes providing skills development and sometime a nationally recognised qualification. They combine practical training with study, both on and off-the-job and our Apprentices are paid the going rate for the role they are working in.
With a wide ranging family of businesses, we have a number of opportunities for you to 'learn whilst you earn', with Apprenticeships in a number of areas from food retail and funeral services, to stone masonry.
