Sainsbury's to create 150 digital and technology jobs in Manchester
Sainsbury’s is to create 150 new digital and technology jobs in Manchester over the next 18 months as it looks to expand its in-house digital and technology capability.
The news follows the supermarket creating 480 digital and technology jobs in London and Coventry over the past year.
The new roles will include agile coaches, software developers and software development managers in addition to DevOps engineers.
Jon Rudoe, digital and technology director at Sainsbury’s, said: “Our vision is for Sainsbury’s to have a world-class digital and technology function to ensure that we can deliver great services for our customers whenever and wherever they want to shop with us.
“This announcement demonstrates our commitment to that goal and to attracting the best talent in this ever developing sector. As Manchester is the UK’s second largest technology hub, it’s a natural step for us to recruit there.”
The new digital and technology team will be based at Sainsbury’s Store Support Centre in Manchester’s Arndale Centre.
