What is the UMC Programme?
Are you somebody who enjoys working in a fast-paced, people oriented, team centric environment? Do you enjoy a lot of responsibility and thrive when under pressure to solve problems and deliver results? Are you ambitious and goal oriented, and able to adapt to changing situations easily?
If this sounds like you, then the Uniqlo Store Manager Candidate (UMC) Programme is likely to be the right programme for you.
The UMC programme is a year-long intensive retail master class, designed to equip you with the skills to become a Store Manager, where you will learn the Japanese standard of retailing. We believe that to be an effective Store Manager, you have to start with the basics, and earn the confidence of the teams you will later go on to manage. It is not for those afraid of challenges; it is a rigorous introduction to life on the shop-floor.
So, how far can you go?
As a high calibre store manager, you will become a key player in Uniqlo’s European expansion; responsible for a multi-million pound store where you will manage and develop a large team of people. You will also have strong relationships with our headquarters, the “Store Support Centre”, working with local marketing, merchandising, HR and E-Commerce campaigns.
Your training needs will be taken care of by our Fast Retailing Management and Innovation Centre, with regular classroom training to top up your knowledge and leadership skills.
Opportunities are limitless: our UMCs in the past have gone on to open stores in new markets, manage our London and Paris Flagship stores, and have been accepted onto internal global leadership programmes.
For the first three months you will work as a customer advisor, learning to deliver excellent customer service, and understand the basic principles at the center of Uniqlo’s mission and vision in store operations.
During the following three months, you will gradually take on more managerial tasks (for example staff schedules, training plans, stock ordering, shop-floor management). Once you have mastered this, the final 6 months will see you work as an Assistant Manager, where you will be simulating the role of a store manager. However, progression is based on your performance so the pace of development is down to you.
If you think you have the endurance and potential to succeed with us, don’t hesitate to apply!
