Karen Lindop: Agile Manchester plus work begins on personalised digital offers

(Transcript) Karen Lindop: Hello, and welcome to our update on what’s happened in the Digital team this week. It’s been a short week, but there’s no shortage of things going on in the team.

We’re proud to have been a sponsor of Agile Manchester this week. As always it’s been a brilliant couple of days, thank to the organisers who have done a great job. Also a massive thank you to Gillian MacDonald, Neil Vass, Ian Thomas, Danny McCarthy, Cara Bermingham who all presented, doing a fantastic job of representing the team and Co-op at the event.

This week our Membership ‘join in’ monthly email was released. This month we’re focussing on pizza, neighbourliness and digital coupons – so there’s something there for everyone. If you’re interested in finding out more you can from our Membership website.

You may remember reading a few months ago a blog post about about the discovery work that some of the team did in partnership with our food colleagues to investigate personalised offers for our members. Well the team have reformed, with the aim of building an end-to-end test of personalised offers via digital channels, ready to test with real members in Q3, 2018.

They are made up of colleagues from our Food business, Retail IT and Digital, each bringing their own expertise to different parts of the service. If you’re interested in finding our more they’re based on the 13th floor of Angel Square.

This week we’ve had some new people join us. Tom Clegg, Daniel Cork, Paul Clarkson, Tom Simcox and Marianne Knowles all join our design community. We also welcome Dale Hudson and Michael Doyle as front-end developers. Welcome to Co-op everyone, it’s great to have you here.

That’s it for this week. Don’t forget to subscribe for all our updates on our blog and follow us on Twitter. See you next week.

Karen Lindop
Head of Digital Operations
