About The Role

We are therefore looking for an experienced Senior Technology Manager - Data Engineering to join our senior leadership team. 

This is a highly influential role in Morrisons, with the opportunity to deliver significant change to all areas of the business. This role will work closely with both business stakeholders and our technology partners to deliver data and insights into the hands of users to enable better decision making, improve business performance and empower colleagues to achieve our business priorities.

You'll also be responsible for:

  • Delivering our data and analytics strategy, maintaining an active and prioritised roadmap and product backlog. 

  • Leading a team of permanent employees as well as our partner teams offshore to deliver business outcomes. 

  • Building strong relationships with senior stakeholders outside of Technology. 

  • Delivering quality technology solutions that are reliable and scalable.

  • Decommissioning of old, legacy reporting technology through cloud adoption. 

  • Increasing the use of strategic Data Marts across all business functions, to ensure consistency of reporting.

  • Working with the Architecture team to make sure all technology solutions are aligned with our high level Technology strategy and ensuring that our standards, policies and principles are appropriate and robust. 

About You

You'll ideally have the following skills and experience:

  • Previous experience leading offshore delivery teams to deliver and maintain business intelligence solutions. 

  • Previous experience of building and leading a high performing team. 

  • Able to communicate, influence and build relationships with business and Technology stakeholders at all levels. 

  • An excellent understanding of Data Modelling. 

  • A proven background in implementing tools and technologies for Data and Analytics. 

  • A can do attitude and the desire to constantly improve.

About The Company

Proud of our roots, Morrisons is a leading Yorkshire food retailer, serving 11 million customers across 500 stores a week. We’re also the UK’s second largest food manufacturer. Together, we make millions of products a year in our 18 manufacturing sites, allowing us to focus on what our customers want: good quality, fresh food and great value.  

Our people make Morrisons. We’re passionate about recognising diverse talent and building careers for our people. We’re forward-thinking and stay one step ahead in an ever-evolving industry, giving us exposure to creative initiatives which improves the offering to our customers.

In return for looking after our customers, we look after our people with great perks, lots of career opportunities and the training and support everyone needs to be the best they can be.

We pride ourselves on being a diverse and inclusive business and are committed to making Morrisons a brilliant place to work, harbouring an environment where our people can thrive. 

Treating all colleagues with respect and dignity is the Morrisons way - we celebrate individuality and love different perspectives. It’s what you bring to the table that matters.

New Ways of Working

The wellbeing of our colleagues is really important to us and we want everyone to have a great home and work life balance. Because of this we've introduced a four day working week for all full time colleagues based at our head office in Bradford.

You’ll be able to flex your working hours around the core hours of 10am-4pm, and can choose to do different hours each day as long as you’re covering these core hours. Each four day week will contain four average nine hour days.

To be more competitive and support our stores and sites more effectively, we now work over a six day operation, Monday to Saturday inclusive, and everyone in our head office now works one Saturday in every four (or 13 a year), albeit Saturday will be a shorter working day of 6 hours.

Your non-working day will need to fit in with the business needs so more information about this and which day you'd take off will be discussed at your interview.
