A bit about our Technology Services team 

Our Technology Services Team supports hybrid working with colleagues across the country to deliver our change programmes, application architecture, development, testing, infrastructure, and support services to build and transform the business. 

We lead on digital and technology projects across all our functional teams by sharing ideas, prioritising our investments, and innovating to shrink, replace or re-write our older legacy systems through using the latest technologies and development approaches across all channels. It’s an exciting journey with heaps to learn and absorb. 

At the heart of all this, is our Technology Service Desk, supporting our 4,000 colleagues. We are adapting the team to align to the needs of our colleagues with exciting changes coming this year by evolving into a pro-active and continual improvement focused team. We’ve already hired some amazing talent from our stores and distribution centre - proving that knowledge from other areas of the business is a big head start for a career in Technology Services, we can show you the rest! 

Our hybrid model working means we balance working from home or in the office, using Microsoft Teams to maintain progress, focus, and provide mutual support. We have regular team briefings, learning sessions, on-line social sessions, and quizzes. Plus, every few months the whole Technology Services team will have a day together to help us develop ourselves and innovate and geek out over all the possibilities!
