IT is a dynamic department at M&S and the backbone of our operation. It enables and empowers us to do so much – for our customer, for our people, for our future growth. This year will see some radical changes to how IT functions within the business.
Maintaining our complex IT infrastructure is just the start of the story. Strategy is also designed and implemented here, often with a major impact on the evolution of our business. One such change was the decision to simplify our existing structures and processes. The result is a new operating structure, a desire to work smarter and the construction of a new IT hub in Stockley Park.
This new facility will enable us to offer greater flexibility and connectivity. People will be able to work how, where and when they wish. Everyone will get access to Skype for Business. We’re transitioning to a way of working that suits you and the product. We’ve adopted an agile work methodology. This gives greater flex and ability to respond to change, as well as making for a more collaborative environment. All levels and languages will be changing too and Cyber Security will be enhanced to keep us, and our customers, protected.
Software engineering and Architecture roles will form the backbone of our new Technology Hub. Greater team cohesion, increased efficiency and enhanced alignment with project needs means we’re prepared to support business transformation. The single location is also a more cost effective use of our resources. There’ll still be hot desks in our Paddington Head Office.
Who we look for
So much change means more opportunity to be curious, flexible and inventive. Problem solvers who aim high to deliver the best IT solutions will thrive here. You’ll want to learn and grow – and have the passion, energy and drive to do so. Those who see beyond the obvious and grasp the possibilities of technology are who we want.
