About The Role

We’ve got an opportunity for a Software Asset Specialist to join the Technology team at our support centre in Bradford.

In this role you'll ensure that Morrisons’ software licence entitlement position (what licences do we own) and deployment position (what licences do we use) are understood and managed and that cases of under-licensing and non-usage are identified. You'll be advising on the purchase and use of software, in each case in order to minimise expenditure on software and risk of non-compliance with licences, and to maximise return on investment in software.

Here at Morrisons our Software Asset Specialist gets involved in things like this;

  • Provides regular insights and reporting to key stakeholders around licence compliance and usage, advising IT leadership team on strategies
  • Developing and maintaining working relationships across the business units 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
  • Providing advice on dealing with software regulatory bodies such as the Federation against Software Theft
  • Managing the response to software vendor audit or license validation requests, in conjunction with legal and commercial colleagues
  • Advising on the company approach to software escrow and coordinate the maintenance of software in escrow
  • Conducting software related supplier negotiations, and provide industry insight and detailed input on software entitlement and usage in order to inform software procurement activity and strategy
