What we're
looking for.

Catherine - Buyer

<<

Passion

Love what you do and try to do it to the best of your ability. You should demonstrate passion for service, products and people.

Enthusiasm

A Store or a Store Support Centre is a very big unit. Only by being a team, working well together can we be number one. We need people who can work well with each other, support and foster strong working relationships.

Commitment

When things get busy here - they can really get busy! So we need people who go the extra mile for us, knowing we'll give our all in return.

Respect

Everyone has a vital job to do in our business. We need individuals who show respect for everyone, no matter what their position, background - colleague and customer alike.

Service

We deliver much more than food - it's a shopping experience. We want our service and the way we deliver retailing, to be the best and your approach should reflect that.

Performance

It's a competitive world and not only should you possess all these previous qualities, but go about applying them in a way that really delivers results. You need to be ambitious - for yourself as well as Sainsbury's.

We're excited about our future. If you decide to join us, you'll be working in an environment where everyone is positive and eager to make a difference. Above all, our teams are passionate about making our customers feel they aren't just in any supermarket: they're in Sainsbury's.

As a leading UK food retailer with interests in financial services, we are always looking for talented individuals to join us and discover just why Sainsbury's is such a great place to work.

Sainsbury's promotes diversity in the workforce and supports Age Positive, Investors in People (Gold accreditation) and the Positive About Disabled People initiatives.
