Do you have a Development Management background with a good technical understanding to enable you to lead and manage a team of technical third party colleagues? 

Would you like to work on the largest European Fashion data SAP implementation to date and integrate with peripheral end to end supply chain applications?

Your Role

You'll have a technical background to enable you to lead mixed capability teams and provide technical direction and coaching.  This is not a hands on technical role, as most of the development is delivered by our third party vendor.  You won't have any direct reports, but you'll be responsible for leading a team of third party developers and working alongside Project Managers and Solution Architects.  You'll ensure that George Clothing systems and enhancements are designed, developed and implemented according to project timelines and budgets, as well as influencing the future direction of the landscape, and implementing best practices.

 This role would ideally suit an individual with previous knowledge of Microsoft SQL server 2005 to 2017, Visual studio .Net framework 2000 onwards till 2019 including TFS/JIRA and ideally some Scrum/Agile practices both for team and coding.

About You

  • Experience using Microsoft SQL server 2005 to 2017
  • Visual studio .Net framework 2000 onwards till 2019 including TFS/JIRA
  • Scrum/Agile practices both for team and coding
  • Identify and drive, through service performance reports, a Continual Service Improvement plan
  • Governance; ensure documentation is filed and archived correctly and timely

If flexible working is important to you, then look no further! At Asda, we are proud of our culture and our commitment to flexible working. This role is based at Asda House, Leeds with the flexibility to work from home 2-3 days per week

You will also get an excellent benefits package including:

  • Discretionary company bonus

  • 10% colleague discount, free parking and many additional rewards.

We want all colleagues to be able to bring their best and true selves to work, every day. Simply put, we want our colleagues to be Proud to be Asda and proud to be themselves.
