In today’s fast paced retail industry, there’s never been a bigger need for fresh, innovative ideas. As a global business with over 2,100 stores in 26 countries, F&F recognises this and as part of the brand’s continued commitment to supporting young talent, we are proud to be working in partnership with the FRA.

The Academy offers students an ideal opportunity to learn and develop the essential skills required to succeed in the retail industry. Whether it is a career in store operations, buying, merchandising or design, the FRA is an unrivalled centre of excellence which helps ambitious young people to achieve their full potential.
As an expanding business, F&F offers various opportunities for young people, whether it is one of our many programmes or to gain work experience.

In the 4th year of our partnership with the FRA, our ENSPIRE programme, a pioneering initiative created to develop entry-level fashion talent, provided students with invaluable hands on experience whilst working towards an accredited vocational qualification. We currently have 12 students on the programme with a further 10 joining.
