Our company in a nutshell

You know that feeling you get when you meet someone and you just 'click'. It's great isn't it? You don't have to explain yourself or try to be something you're not. You can just relax, be yourself and know that that's good enough!

Well, get ready to feel that way about a career with the Co-op, because we offer a refreshingly different approach to big business. One that's really down to earth and straightforward. One that involves and includes everyone. And importantly, one that offers a world of opportunity and a uniquely different approach to work and life.

Join us and you're one of 70,000 people working together to make a decent, fair, ethically and morally strong business succeed. You'll enjoy loads of support too and every opportunity to develop, progress and help us shape a better future for our members, the local community and the wider world.

We believe the more successful you are, the more successful we are, and the more we can give back to the people and places that need it most. If we're talking your language then get clicking to find out more.
