TOPSHOP and TOPMAN are leading high street fashion retailers who strive for continual growth and innovation. Our inspiring brand visions, 'to become THE World's fashion authority' and 'to lead the high street in delivering the latest men's fashion trends with authority' are coupled with a real commitment to growing and developing our people.

We understand that each of our employees is unique and has different needs for personal growth. Our hope is that we can motivate and inspire our people through a varied offer of team building days, development centres, fun events, competencies, training workshops and coaching. The Head Office environment that we encourage is innovative, creative and dynamic. With this in mind, each development activity is carefully developed to ensure that they are delivered in a challenging and creative way, enabling everyone to participate.

Beyond the TOPSHOP TOPMAN brands is the rest of the Arcadia Group, so you will benefit from the opportunity to further develop your career within the Group.

Induction Programme - Your Welcome to the Business

No matter which role you join in our business, you will receive a bespoke induction tailored to your needs, providing you with the opportunity to work and learn with people who are passionate about our brands to deliver the ultimate shopping experience on the high street.

Your induction programme will cover essential business elements to your specific role, but with tailor-made sections depending on your level of experience. This will be fully supported by your Line Manager and HR Department.

Performance Reviews

You will have regular reviews with your Line Manager to keep you on track with your progress including a 3 month review (with 360° feedback), 1:1 coaching sessions, development reviews and annual appraisals. These reviews will help you to understand your strengths and development areas to build into your Personal Development Plan.


We encourage you to take ownership for your own learning and development to reach your potential. On joining our business you will be given a book of competencies specific to your role and level. This will provide a framework of behavioural and technical statements relating to the competencies expected of you. Each level is progressive and viewed as a building block to the next level, highlighting specific areas for personal development.
