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.

  • We value an eye for business, great organisation and prioritisation skills and we favour an analytical and logical approach to problem solving and an individual so is action orientated
  • We are looking for motivated individuals who influence because of their experience and credibility, not by 'turning the volume up'! Good communication skills with people at all levels is important
  • Colleagues are at the heart of our business and teams. We are looking somebody who can inspire, manage and develop others as a coach or line manager
