About The Role
We Make Morrisons…

From a Bradford market stall to the UK’s fourth largest supermarket we are proud to be the Yorkshire food retailer serving customers across the UK over almost 500 stores and an online home delivery service. Our business is mainly food & grocery and, uniquely, we source & process most of the fresh food that we sell through our own manufacturing facilities. 

We’re recruiting for a high performing Store Manager in the East Riding & North Lincolnshire area area to help our business to continue to grow and succeed. It’s a really great time to join, we’re a business in change, continually looking for new ideas and ways to make Morrisons a better place for our customers and our colleagues, and our Store Managers play a huge role in that.

Our Store Managers work hard, their role as ‘shopkeepers’ means they run their stores with an entrepreneurial spirit, with their customers and colleagues remaining their number one priority. Leading a team of senior managers (approx. 8-10) and reporting into the Regional Manager, it’s their job through strong leadership to ensure the store is a great place for people to work and shop, making our core supermarket offering strong and consistent. 

It’s a given that as a Store Manager you’re ultimately responsible for driving KPI’s and overseeing the store operations, but your Operations Managers are the one responsible for delivering the day to day. We’re looking for Store Managers who can deliver more than just the numbers. We’re looking for leaders who can create and build diverse teams and drive their KPI’s through their people. 

As the Store Manager it is your job to:
  • Lead a team who in turn creates a customer centric culture where our customers experience is the best in the market, in line with the Morrisons brand. Always challenging and thinking of new ways of how we can serve our customers better. 
  • Build and manage relationships with the local community, marketing your store so that it stands out. 
  • Treat your store as if it was your own business, always thinking of new ways to improve your offering by working with local businesses to better our local solutions. Working with our central local solutions team to continue bringing in new products for our customers. 
  • Continually challenge the ways of working to think of new ways to speed up and simplify your store processes, and having confidence to challenge the status quo. 
  • Thinking digitally, ensuring that we’re always ahead of the curve. Listening and responding to what the customers and colleagues are telling us to make their lives easier when it comes to getting their weekly shop. 
  • Continually managing performance against KPIs. Identifying areas of improvement, and managing initiatives through to implementation. Competing to be the best in the market. 
  • Working with your People Manager to drive the talent agenda. Ensuring everyone feels supported and are able to perform at their best. 
  • Work with the central teams to ensure we have the best availability on the high street, ensuring Morrisons becomes a one stop shopping destination. 
How do we say thank you? 
You will play a vital role in our business and have a huge impact on our success so not only will you receive excellent training, support and continued development but we will also offer a competitive salary, and superb benefits package.

Want more?

Our benefits package not only includes a generous bonus and car allowance but you will also receive an attractive pension scheme, private family healthcare, long term incentive bonus plans, and share save schemes, as well as a colleague discount that we encourage you to share with your friends and family.  

No doubt you'll have shopped in our stores before, but why not take a look at some of the areas our customers don't see, such as our warehouses and colleague canteens to get a real taste of life at Morrisons. Explore using our 360 tour .
About You
Our store managers must have previous experience in the retail industry (ideally food). Experience of managing a large customer facing and high turnover operation (over £300k per week) is essential. If you don’t have the experience of these kinds of turnovers, we’d still love to hear from you. Check out our Operations Manager opportunities. 

You also need to have:
  • Strong leadership skills with the capacity to listen and respond. 
  • The ability to influence, listen and understand the external perspective to inspire and think broadly about new ways of doing things. 
  • Strong coaching skills. You must be able to give feedback to ensure common ways of working. 
  • A passion for spotting, driving talent and creating a successful team culture. 
  • The ability to resolve challenges and build trust between the full store team. 
  • Set clear objectives that link directly to each department that are aligned with Morrisons priorities. 
  • The power to create a culture that fosters and values collaboration. 
  • Broad thinking. And willingness to accept opinions, beliefs of behaviours that are different from your own.  
We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
About The Company
Shopkeepers for over 100 years, we love providing our customers with a great shopping experience they won’t find anywhere else.

At just under 500 stores across the UK, our retail colleagues work as one team to provide plenty of food essentials, a great service and a buzz people enjoy. It’s why our customers keep coming back for more.

The UK’s 4th largest supermarket, we provide great value for money and good quality fresh food and groceries to over 11 million customers every week. Our focus on freshness makes us stand out as we prepare more fresh food in-store than any other supermarket. It’s challenging. It’s fast-paced. But from Market Street to checkout our friendly team loves going above and beyond to bring our customers what they want.

At Morrisons we believe in investing in our colleagues and industry-leading training programmes. We provide our colleagues with the opportunities they need to make it to the top. Many of our store managers started out on the shop floor. They’ve been there and done that. It’s how they know how to support our colleagues and help our customers so well.
