About The Role

We are in the middle of a major transformation of our Corporate & Commercial area. Underpinning this we have some exciting software developments and we’re looking for Projects Managers that’ve delivered major programmes in this space to drive. 

The transformation will mean engaging with our commercial, retail and legal teams extensively, and you’ll forge robust working relationships with senior leaders in this space. You’ll be responsible for a multi-million pound programme of work, one of the largest our organisation has undertaken, driven by a legal requirement to support the safety of our customers.

If you have a demonstrable track record leading major programmes of work, and are comfortable navigating an ever changing and fast paced environment, this would be a perfect match. We've recently introduced a 4 day working week, details of which can be found at the bottom of the advert.


As a Project Manager at Morrisons, you'll be accountable for;

  • Multi-million pound projects. From shaping and inception through to delivery.

  • Stakeholder management, internally across technology and business teams and externally with multiple suppliers.

  • Ownership and shaping of short- and mid-term development plans.

  • The delivery approach for the development teams, ensuring we evolve and move with the times on best practice.

  • Budgetary responsibility for project spend and benefits realisation.

  • Ensuring projects have a smooth transition into support.

  • Accountability for team health and happiness.

About You

As a Project Manager at Morrisons, you'll need skills and experience like this;

  • Track record of successfully leading and delivering transformation projects and programmes.

  • Experience in managing multiple third party suppliers.

  • Strong communication skills.

  • Experience of managing technical teams (experience of DevOps or scrum is beneficial, but aptitude to learn new technologies is most important).

  • Experience of agile with a little ‘a’ (we’re not purists and pick the parts that work for us).

  • Problem solving, seeing the bigger picture and getting things done in a fast-paced retail environment.

  • Great influencing and stakeholder management skills across all levels.

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 improve 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.
