You’re a digital, tech or data specialist. You live, play, chat, problem solve, and communicate using tech. After all, you don’t go online. You live online. So why would you choose to work for a 150-year-old retailer?
We’re on a journey. Changing the way we operate. We’re bringing digital, tech and data together like never before. We’re testing. Experimenting. Learning to think nimble. Giving our teams the time and freedom they need to push boundaries. To create amazing systems and technologies. There are thousands of experts to talk to and learn from here. We’ve got data from billions of transactions for you to play with. Things get built here. They get made here. They reach customers and colleagues quickly.
If we combine the thinking of a start-up with our size, knowledge and unmatched resources, we can create a unique kind of rational magic. After all, 70% of people in the UK use our tech. We make deliveries at record speeds. We fill millions of food cupboards each year. Our new approach, backed with big-business influence and knowhow, is precisely why we’re looking for talented people like you to join us on our journey.
DTD Business Areas
Digital is at the heart of everything we do. We’re harnessing and harmonising the capabilities across our multi-brands. And we’re improving the experience for our colleagues and customers. Take our Experience Design, where designers and researchers are creating and iterating new and exciting digital products and services that shape the future of shopping. Or Product Management, where the team bring fresh new products and initiatives to the business.
We’re in a fascinating, ever-changing, ever-accelerating digital landscape. It calls for bold, curious, nimble and talented people who love nothing more than delivering for customers and colleagues time after time.
We want to push boundaries. That’s why we’re given the time, freedom and space to show what we’re made of. At the heart of an ever-changing space, our tech teams create amazing systems and technologies. We give our colleagues and our customers bold and nimble solutions online and in-store.
We understand the importance of testing, experimenting and learning. This approach, combined with our huge infrastructure and wealth of knowledge and experience, means flow diagrams can become apps and wireframes can become websites in weeks. In short, our ideas get made, launched and used. By millions.
We don’t think we’re exaggerating when we say we have the most exciting data set in the country. We’re a multi-channel, multi-brand business with the UK’s largest loyalty scheme, a huge online platform and millions of customers.
All in all, this is 1.2 billion transactions, throwing up a volume, depth and complexity of data that few can match. And through the insights gained, we help shape the way the nation shops. Here you’ll have space to play, analyse and problem-solve. And we have hundreds of experts for you to talk to and learn from while you do so.
Combine this scale with our experimental approach to work and in-built dynamism, and you get a special kind of rational magic – where you’ll make millions of customers’ and colleagues’ lives easier, better, healthier and greener.
Our vision is to be the most trusted retailer, where people love to work and shop. That means harnessing the talent, creativity and diversity of our colleagues to ensure that customers receive great service every time they shop with us. We invest in training, development and multiple initiatives to ensure our teams feel enabled to offer the best shopping experience to our customers and that Sainsbury’s is truly a ‘Great Place to Work’.
We offer an environment where everyone can thrive. Somewhere our 185,000 colleagues can become the best versions of themselves. We think that’s a pretty good place to start. Flexible working and job share conversations are encouraged. Across our multi-brands, we’re proud to be an equal opportunities employer that champions a diverse and inclusive culture. If you’re reading this, even if you’re not 100% sure you’re there with your experience, we’d still love to hear from you.
