Sainsburys creates 480 digital and technology jobs
The supermarket said the digital experts will run and improve Sainsbury’s website and mobile shopping apps, and will also develop, test and launch new products in a new ‘Digital Lab’ due to open in the summer.
It is also upgrading its infrastructure and core business systems including building improved platforms for online shopping and supply chains.
With recruitment for 180 London roles currently underway, a new ‘Technology Hub’ in Coventry will create another 300 specialist roles that will sit alongside the supermarket’s existing operational team that supports stores, depots and offices.
Sainsbury’s chief executive Mike Coupe, said: "The shape of our business is changing and digital and technology is a core part of our future growth. Ultimately these changes are good news for customers – the Technology Hub in Coventry will keep our systems running smoothly and experts in our Digital Lab in London will be developing new ways of digital shopping to give customers the best access to our products, services and offers."
