Transforming Retail

We’re busy transforming retail to make every customer experience a brilliant one. And our managers play a vital role in making it happen. It’s why we’ve created brand new roles that reimagine what retail managers can do. Our managers are leaders, with the power to do what’s needed, and the freedom to do things their way. Guiding teams, and getting smart with tech, they make sure their store really performs.

Exciting new roles like these call for role models. Whether you’re already working in retail, or new to it, you’ll be ready to inspire, up for a challenge and hungry to learn. You’ll share our passion for making each and every customer’s day. And while you’re helping Sainsbury’s to lead the way in retail, we’ll help you to be the leader you want to be.
