Job Description

The big question: why on earth should a Tech professional like you work for a 150-year-old retail chain? Because we’re on a journey. Changing the way we operate. Learning to think nimble. Giving our teams the time and freedom they need to push boundaries. To create amazing systems and technologies. To give our colleagues and our customers even more incredible experiences.

There are thousands of experts to talk to and learn from. We’ve got data from billions of transactions for our teams to play with. Things get built here. They get made here. They hit customers and colleagues quickly. Welcome to the home of Sainsbury's Tech.

  • Someone with a passion for Information Security, Data Governance and an eye for detail
  • Someone who is familiar with ISO27001, PCI DSS, GDPR, and other relevant regulation
  • Someone who proactively identifies and owns any issues and follows through to resolve them (get the required result)
  • Someone who works collaboratively with a range of people to support the wider business agenda
  • Someone with the ability to prioritise their own workload and deliver on time to budget
  • Someone with the ability to think methodically and logically, and communicates well using spoken and written word

In return you’ll get:

Work-life balance is important to us, so we offer our colleagues as much flexibility as possible in line with the needs of their role. We trust them to decide how, where and when they work, combining remote and collaborative working with a flexible approach to hours, giving them plenty of time and space for life outside of work whilst delivering against our business goals.
