On the hunt for a graduate scheme that’s challenging, exciting – and as unique as you are? Our Finance Graduate Scheme could be just what you’re after.

We’re the UK’s number one homeware retailer, turning houses into homes across the UK since 1979. Today, with over 170 superstores across the country and a successful online operation – – we’re an industry-leading, instantly recognisable brand and offer over 50,000 products across a broad range of categories.

How did we get this far? By understanding our customers and constantly innovating and improving the way we do things. And we’re nowhere near finished. That’s why we’re on the lookout for fearless go-getters, ambitious self-starters and creative innovators who’ve got the passion and determination to take charge of their careers – and shape the future of our industry. That’s where you come in.

What to expect:

From commercial finance to procurement, from payroll to tax, the Finance team at Dunelm works with leaders and colleagues across the organisation, providing expert advice, identifying improvements and supporting key business decisions.

Join our team as a graduate and you’ll dive straight into this ever-changing, always-business-critical world with a structured rotational scheme that exposes you to a range of finance areas while providing you with the support, training and tuition you need to gain professional qualifications.

Over three years you’ll:

  • Play a key role in a range of finance areas including financial accounts and commercial trading
  • Get involved in all kind of projects, often working with other areas of the business
  • Build strong working relationships with people across the organisation and learn how different areas of the business really work
  • Dive into leadership workshops and development programmes that’ll shape you into a future leader
  • Study and work towards a professional qualification with support from a CIMA mentor
  • Team up with other graduates at Dunelm to work on ad hoc business projects

What you’ll bring:

  • Strong analytical thinking with a natural tendency to question the “why” and the “how”
  • The resilience and ambition to drive your own development and the eagerness to constantly find new learning opportunities
  • Logical approach and attention to detail
  • Strong organisational and time management skills
  • Ability to build relationships within your team and across the wider business
  • Some knowledge of Microsoft Excel
  • A minimum 2:1 degree or equivalent in any relevant subject

Our benefits:

Our range of benefits are just as unique as our graduate schemes and include a 15% colleague discount on all our products.
