Technology Programme Graduate

Job description

We want our graduates to waste no time. We’ll give you real projects to deliver so you can develop programme skills, such as influencing business partners, managing complicated plans and communicating effectively within technical programmes of work. You’ll work with technology specialists across the globe, learn on the job and be supported through a variety of training opportunities to give you the right skills and experience.

No two days are the same in our Technology team. You could be planning the rollout of our new checkouts to 2000+ stores, co-ordinating the development of a new payroll system or working on the development of brand-new mobile apps for our customers. Technology continues to change the face of retail and ours leads the way.

You'll be at the heart of our decision making and your goal will be to plan, co-ordinate and roll-out technology solutions in a safe and sustainable way. You'll work collaboratively with multiple teams across Technology and the business to find the best solutions for our customers, including communicating, planning and delivering them effectively. You'll ensure our solutions align to strategic goals, manage risks, create plans and track progress, working with software engineers and partners.

What’s the difference between Product and Programme?

A Product Manager will translate customer problems into pieces of development for a technology product, working closely with software engineers, whilst also looking at the bigger picture of the product roadmap, strategy & vision. A Technical Programme Manager will collaborate with all affected teams to create a plan, manage technical risks, issues and dependencies, communicate with all partners and generally co-ordinate the technical aspects of a piece of work.
