People challenges don't come much bigger.

With around 161,000 people employed in a chain of 601 supermarkets and 773 convenience stores and at our very own Bank, it’s fair to say that Human Resources at Sainsbury’s is pretty big business. But, if you're ready to make the next move in your HR career and want to be part of an organisation that, from humble beginnings back in 1869, has grown to be one of the UK’s leading retailers, complete with all the people challenges that entails, here’s your chance.


The official line is that you’ll be supporting an HR Business Partner in the delivery of a comprehensive HR service to relevant divisional teams. What that means is we’ll rely on you to make sure the people implications of business planning and people management are considered and acted upon appropriately. You’ll also be seen as an expert on divisional HR matters who’s there to provide vital day-to-day people management support to our line managers. Whether you’re helping to turn business strategy into HR requirements, assessing training needs, coaching managers or reporting on colleague data, one thing’s for sure – you won’t be short of challenge and variety.


At Sainsbury’s, talent gets the stage it deserves - so you can be sure that if you shine, you’ll thrive here. So what will you need to succeed? Experience within the HR field, preferably generalist, with good legal knowledge, is a given. You’ll need to be commercially astute too, with a track record of managing change and a flair for coaching others. Resilient yet flexible, the ability to build strong business relationships and influence senior stakeholders will also stand you in good stead. And, if you have excellent planning, prioritising and problem solving skills and a calm demeanour when working under pressure or handling challenging situations, we should definitely talk.
