About The Role

We’re looking for an experienced Environment and Automation Manager to join our Technology team at our head office in Bradford, West Yorkshire. 

This is a brand new role within our Technology team where you’ll have the autonomy to define and implement the strategy for environment management, software deployment and automation across all our environments. This role is at the core of our Retail Technology team and will work across various products to improve the overall quality of testing and production releases. 

You'll be accountable for:

  • Defining and managing the access and standards of environments, creating a quicker route to live with the support of automation.

  • Introducing end to end automation, using innovative, bleeding edge techniques, to improve the quality and speed of testing and the quality of service. 

  • Effective management and governance of non-production retail environments, ensuring the delivery teams have the correct environments in order to deliver quality.

  • Developing and maintaining effective working relationships across technology, cross functionally and with third parties in order to drive change effectively.

  • Driving forward and influencing test automation of business solutions to improve processes, operating practises and systems for the benefit of colleagues & customers in store.

About You

You'll ideally have the following skills and experience:

  • Subject matter expert (SME) technical knowledge of test automation and environment management.

  • Previous experience working in an Agile environment.

  • Knowledge of processes involved in end-to-end delivery of change within a technology environment/delivery lifecycle.

  • Strong appreciation of the wider field of retail technology and particularly its impact on end users (i.e. colleagues and customers in store). POS experience would be advantageous but not essential.

  • A driven, proactive and resilient technical professional - able to inspire action from those around them (internally & externally).

About The Company

Proud of our roots, Morrisons is a leading Yorkshire food retailer, serving 11 million customers across 500 stores a week. We’re also the UK’s second largest food manufacturer. Together, we make millions of products a year in our 18 manufacturing sites, allowing us to focus on what our customers want: good quality, fresh food and great value.  

Our people make Morrisons. We’re passionate about recognising diverse talent and building careers for our people. We’re forward-thinking and stay one step ahead in an ever-evolving industry, giving us exposure to creative initiatives which improve the offering to our customers.

In return for looking after our customers, we look after our people with great perks, lots of career opportunities and the training and support everyone needs to be the best they can be.

We pride ourselves on being a diverse and inclusive business and are committed to making Morrisons a brilliant place to work, harbouring an environment where our people can thrive. 

Treating all colleagues with respect and dignity is the Morrisons way - we celebrate individuality and love different perspectives. It’s what you bring to the table that matters.

New Ways of Working

The wellbeing of our colleagues is really important to us and we want everyone to have a great home and work life balance. Because of this we've introduced a four day working week for all full time colleagues based at our head office in Bradford.

You’ll be able to flex your working hours around the core hours of 10am-4pm, and can choose to do different hours each day as long as you’re covering these core hours. Each four day week will contain four average nine hour days.

To be more competitive and support our stores and sites more effectively, we now work over a six day operation, Monday to Saturday inclusive, and everyone in our head office now works one Saturday in every four (or 13 a year), albeit Saturday will be a shorter working day of 6 hours.

Your non-working day will need to fit in with the business needs so more information about this and which day you'd take off will be discussed at your interview.
