About The Team

About Us Description:
At Morrisons, we're the single biggest food manufacturer in the UK, and the only retailer to operate our own processing sites. Which means we're not just responsible for keeping our shelves stocked - we need to stock our manufacturing sites, too.

As a true one-of-a-kind business, we curate, arrange and buy everything from raw materials like flour and meat to the products our customers pop in for every day. We negotiate prices and make sure we're able to sell as much as we can. We look at product packaging and quality to help us decide where products will sit in our stores. And when you remember that each category is worth a percentage of our overall £12billion turnover from supermarket sales alone, the impact of each buying team is huge.

We work in embedded business teams, so our Buyers sit with their supply chain, finance and technical counterparts, working alongside each other to make decisions and take action quickly. We even have joint targets so that we're unified in our mission to serve our customers.

The Nutmeg team focuses on listening to our customers to put the best ranges in stores based on trends, seasonality, store demographic and event calendars, and the merchandising team plays a key role in all of these decision making processes. You will work on a team of 8 people including Merchandising, Buying and Design to develop and land several ranges a season. The environment is fast paced with a focus on getting results quickly that inspires our customers to keep on coming back to us.
