I attended the Asda in-house graduate day and instantly knew that I wanted to work for the company. Asda’s happy and fun culture came across loud and clear as we were greeted by a welcoming group of Asda colleagues and introduced to the company’s heritage. We were also guided through the opportunities available to Asda colleagues and it was obvious that they really do empower respect for the individual. Asda is a well-known and respected brand, which means competition for roles is high, but coming from an academic retail background I knew that successfully gaining a position here would mean a challenging and very rewarding career.
