Work with us

Co-op Digital is building digital products, services and platforms to help our Co-op make the most of digital. We are based in Manchester city centre.

Our multidisciplinary teams are working on:

  • things that make working at the Co-op easier for all our colleagues, so they can spend more time looking after their customers
  • things that help members and customers
  • researching and testing new digital ideas that may fit within the wider Co-op

We start with user needs, we work in an agile way and we’re open and transparent. If you share these values we might be a good fit for each other.

We understand that it’s what you do, not when you do it that’s important so we’ll always try to be flexible with other commitments you might have.

We’re actively seeking to build diverse teams. At the moment, we’d particularly like to hear from people whose skills fit with the roles on this page. However, if your digital specialism isn’t mentioned here right now, get in touch anyway. Email us at resourcingservices@coop.co.uk
