Helping customers live well for less has been at the heart of what we do since 1869. Built on a heritage of bright, bold decisions we have a simple vision : to be the most trusted retailer where people love to work and shop.

Sainsbury's has always been a pioneering business, opening the first ever self-service checkouts in 1950, and this drive for innovation is no different today. Whilst food remains our heartland, the addition of Argos, Habitat and Bank to our family has transformed what we offer to customers, making living well for less even easier.

When you join Sainsbury's, you become part of a team that will always do the right thing for customers, colleagues, communities, suppliers and the environment.

People are essential to our vision and we make sure that talent gets the stage it deserves. We don't just recruit outstanding people into Sainsbury's; we also ensure they thrive once they get here. Our colleagues get the support to grow into the leaders of the future, with structured development and excellent progression opportunities across the Group.
