About The Role

We’re looking for an Innovation Project Specialist to join our Technology team at our head office in Bradford, West Yorkshire. We’re looking for a passionate individual who has a genuine curiosity for innovation. You’ll work with stakeholders from across the organisation to discover and define problems and unmet needs and deliver innovation projects from spark to service transfer, enabled by best ways of working and technologies.

You'll be accountable for:

  • Managing the delivery of innovation projects and supporting proof of concept trials.

  • Providing regular updates to stakeholder teams. 

  • Building productive relationships across Morrisons, listening to colleagues and customers to respond to changing needs.

About You

You'll ideally have the following skills and experience:

  • A proven track record in project delivery, ideally change, innovation or business improvement initiatives.

  • Experience working in a range of business units or functions and therefore a broad perspective of a business.

  • An understanding of technologies and the technology landscape relevant to: retail, supply chain and manufacturing.

  • Resourceful and proactive, with strong, creative problem solving skills.

  • Credible influencing and stakeholder management skills across all levels.

  • Aptitude for dealing with uncertainty and de-risking projects and opportunities.

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.
