Jon Rudoe: Our new grocery website

This weekend, we completed the launch of our improved grocery website. We began the roll-out of the new site in September last year, working our way through the country, store by store, post code by post code. The feedback from customers about the new site has been positive, the site is holding up well and we're excited to have made the site available to all our online customers.

Victora Slater: Through the scheme I’ve found a real passion

Firstly a bit about me; I joined the scheme in September, after graduating from Cambridge University in 2011 with a degree in Classics. I then worked in Recruitment Consultancy before going travelling for 6 months last year. I know many of my fellow graduate cohort have outlined their first few months with Sainsbury’s, so I won’t rehash all of that. But instead I will start about two weeks into my first placement in Head Office.

Robert Jones - So what does it take to be a 2020 graduate?

A mere four months have passed since I started as a fresh faced Graduate and today I find myself in the general office of Sainsbury’s Hendon. “How many trolleys do we need to order?” cries the voice of my Store Manager. “When do I get my holiday forms back?” demands another colleague. “Rob, we need you downstairs at the checkouts!” comes a voice over the phone that I have pressed to my ear... Sound chaotic? Not at all, this is just another day as a Sainsbury’s 2020 Graduate.
