About The Team

About Us Description:
Feeding the Nation and making sure people can get the food they need wouldn't be possible without our incredible supply chain.

It's about growing our online business, including our partnership with Ocado. And it involves building our wholesale function as we work with Amazon to supply external businesses rather than just our stores.

What makes our supply chain unique is that we don't just sell food - we make it too, which means we work alongside our own manufacturing teams as well as suppliers.

And with a day to day workload that includes merchandising, development, data science, Greenfield tech, and more, it's busy, it's fast-moving, it's ambitious, and it's an incredible place to work, right at the heart of Morrisons.
