Are you hungry to build your career in retail management and expand your education? Then Lidl’s Management Degree Programme in conjunction with Ulster University and Irish Times Training is for you!

Our 2 year Level 7 Foundation Degree in Management Practice with Specialism in Retail is aimed at retail and operations professionals and offers a blended approach to earning your degree.

You’ll start with an intensive 3-month operational training programme where you’ll learn our business. Once this has been completed, you’ll be enrolled on the degree programme, where you will attend 6 1-week classroom based sessions over the 2 years of the programme. In between these, you’ll work 4 days per week in one of our stores or warehouses, and spend 1 day per week studying online. There will be a number of other training programmes which will complement your academic learning and opportunities to work on projects that make a real impact to our business. You’ll also be assigned a mentor and a coach, and the Regional Training and Development Manager will also be supporting you through your journey.
