Join our People & Culture (also known as HR) function and choose from either a Store Support Centre (SSC) or Operations state-based role:

Our Operations roles focus on generalist Business Partnering and are available in VIC, NSW, and QLD & WA. These roles involve working closely with leadership teams and store/site team members to drive the People & Culture agenda. You will mainly support our Supermarket teams, with the opportunity to work in either Liquor or Coles Express for one of your rotations.

The SSC roles are only available in VIC and provide the opportunity to work in both generalist and specialist rotations. Our generalist Business Partnering rotations involve working closely with SSC teams and out in the field across one of our three brands (Supermarkets, Liquor and Coles Express) to drive the People & Culture agenda. During specialist rotations you will work across one of our Centres of Excellence including Advisory Services, Learning & Development, Recruitment or Organisational Development to name a few.

Learn from great leaders – You will have an extensive support network (Line Manager, People & Culture Business Partner, Accelerator Coach, Buddy, Huddle Group Moderator, Peers and Graduate alumni) to assist you in creating a challenging and successful career and be given constant feedback to hone your skills.
