You’re here to help colleagues across Sainsbury’s Group get as much value as possible from the data we hold as a business. Because you’re curious about our industry, Group of businesses, and particularly Food, you’ll be inquisitive about the difference our colleagues are trying to make for our customers, using the information which is unique to us. And where the data which can create this information is held.

Your business and data analysis will bring to life how our data should be held in our new cross group cloud based analytics platform and will help our data engineers work out how data should be extracted out of our systems. The analysis you perform will play a key role in enabling Sainsbury’s to unlock our data’s insight potential, all in support of Sainsbury’s strategy to ‘know our customers better than anyone else’
