In Commercial Planning we pride ourselves on making a good impression, every time. After all, months of hard work goes into developing or finding a product that meets our customer’s needs, so we need to ensure that we’re using our space in the best way to maximise availability, helping everyone eat better.
In our team, cross functional working, in-depth analysis and a keen eye for detail means we can ensure Sainsbury’s ranges deliver on availability when it’s needed the most to help us drive profit and keep our customers coming back again and again.
Join us as a Macro Space Manager and you will be at the centre of the largest change programme in Sainsbury’s history. Your analysis and recommendations will influence the key decisions on the major convenience and specialist channels programmes, while also granting you exposure to senior stakeholders across all functions in the broader group. You will be responsible for creating the optimal space allocations to deliver the best commercial and customer outcomes. The impact of this role has included our recent opening of neighbourhood hubs; helping us to service our rural communities better, the 300% growth in our grocery online capacity, and our new business ventures into Simply Fresh and Dobbies Garden Centres.
We’re looking for someone who has great knowledge of stores and layouts. With an analytical mindset, you’ll provide guidance to your Macro Space Analyst to look at the data and present the story it tells it to ensure that we can achieve our project milestones. You’ll need to be a great communicator, as you’ll work closely with stakeholders from all areas of our business up to divisional director level.
