About The Role

We're looking for a Software Asset Manager to join our Technology team. You’ll be responsible for ensuring that Morrisons’ software licence entitlement position and deployment position are understood and managed and that cases of under-licensing and non-usage are identified. You'll also be advising on the purchase and use of software, in order to minimise expenditure on software, minimise risk of non-compliance with licences and to maximise return on investment in software.

You’ll also be responsible for:

  • Advising on the software asset management approach for the business. 

  • Providing regular insights and reporting to key stakeholders around licence compliance and usage.

  • Developing and maintaining working good relationships across the Technology team to ensure that software use is disclosed and controlled.

  • Developing and communicating the software usage policy.

  • Regularly reviewing software deployment and usage to identify and outline potential efficiencies and cost savings.

  • Evaluating, selecting and implementing appropriate IT software asset management tools. 

  • Conducting software related supplier negotiations.

About You

You’ll ideally have the following skills and experience:

  • Excellent knowledge of the software marketplace, software licensing models, major software vendors and means of tracking and assessing compliance.

  • The ability to review and understand detailed and complex software licensing terms.

  • Sufficient confidence and commercial experience to successfully negotiate with software licensors. 

  • A proven background in software asset management and software purchase and licensing gained within a large fast paced company. 

  • Previous experience handling software audits by major suppliers.

  • Previous experience embedding software asset management policies, processes and tools as well as delivering substantial maturity improvements.

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 are passionate about recognising diverse talent and building careers for our people. We are 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.

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.
