Fresh thinking is the name of the game. We think innovatively to provide our customers with quality products and fresh, tasty food from all over the world.
We love talking to suppliers about their products and going out in the field (quite literally) to see what we’re buying for ourselves. We’re refreshingly different because we’re the UK’s most integrated food retailer with our own bakery, cooked meat factory, cheese packaging facilities, fish processing plants and more.
Together we’re a team of 450 people who decide what we sell and at what price. We negotiate deals with suppliers. We listen to what brands and products our customers want. And we look for the best local produce, tracking down products around the world to meet constantly changing tastes.
Own brands. Value brands. Global brands. We take great pride in them all. We also offer you the chance to specialise whether fashion, fruit or frozen food is your passion.
Why Morrisons? We’re multi-award winning - named retailer of the year for international wine and meat & fish. We prepare more food in our stores than any other UK retailer. We also have more in-store Butchers, Fishmongers and Bakers than our competitors. Put simply we’re as passionate about providing good quality products as you are.
We are an equal opportunities employer and welcome applications from all sections of the community.
