(IT Business Systems Director)
2 Sisters IT department is continually evolving and I’m based in our Shared Service Centre in Wakefield. My role is to identify technology opportunities to solve business problems within the Group.
We deliver solutions to all areas of the business ensuring they have the right systems so people can do their jobs to the best of their abilities – we call it agility for ability!
Recently we sourced and installed a package and label verification solution across several sites to ensure we achieve the highest standards in the industry. We are also looking to the future by creating an in-house digital team to ensure we remain at the forefront of technology within the food business.
The pace of change in consumer behaviour means that we need to futureproof systems to give us a competitive advantage through the years to come.
One of the biggest challenges we face within IT is the sheer volume of work we have across the Group, due to the speed of our growth through acquisition.
We are now executing a programme of work to consolidate our systems to build a modern platform for the future of our business, whilst ensuring we support the day-to-day operations of our current footprint.
I really enjoy playing a part in the business’ plans for growth, helping to design the future IT systems roadmap. My role is very diverse and enables me to work across all functions within our divisions across the full range of our products.
