About us

We’re The Very Group, home to Very.co.uk, Littlewoods.com and a team of 4,000 super-talented people.

We’re the UK’s largest integrated digital retailer and financial services provider, and we’ve been helping customers say yes when it matters most for over 100 years. In that time, we’ve consistently reinvented our business to adapt to economic conditions and industry changes – going from bricks, to clicks, to mobile.

But despite our passion for reinvention, we’ve never wavered from our purpose; to make good things easily accessible to more people. It means giving our customers the brands they love, an outstanding shopping experience and flexible ways to spread the cost.

We’ve continued to deliver for our customers throughout the Covid-19 outbreak – and we’ve done it by transforming the way we work.

We’re fired up for the future and the next stage in our development. We’ll give customers access to more great brands for themselves and their families, a seamless shopping experience and even more control of their finances through innovation in flexible ways to pay.

About the role

You'll be responsible for managing the delivery of process automations in accordance to the Blue Prism Delivery Methodology, on time and on budget.

You'll be managing the detailed tasks required in order to deliver high quality solutions and you'll have the scope to plan the Define, Design, Configure and test deliverables.

You'll be the 'go to' person for queries around utilisation of automation across The Very Group to support functional business requirements.

It is not a hands on development role, but there will be some work around integrations and APIs.

There's obviously much more to it than that, but you get the idea...

About the team
