Money Supermarket are one of the UK’s leading technology businesses and continue to go from strength-to-strength. I’ve been keen to record with them as they are a major entity within the Manchester technology community, having moved their head office here from Chester a few years ago. In this episode I speak with their Technology Director, Rob Bowley.
When we recorded this episode, Rob hadn’t been with Money Supermarket for long but had a wealth of experience in senior leadership roles within the tech sector. Rob was instrumental in the digital transformation work that took place at Co-op that I was able to enjoy working within as a contractor. Since joining Money Supermarket, the impact he’s had has been fairly limited having only been involved with the organisation for a few months but he has been able to take a good hard look at their organisation and how they plan and delivery new projects.
We spent a fair amount of time digging into recruitment practices for Money Supermarket, as this is a topic that comes up again and again on the podcast and discuss how a junior or graduate developer might work to make themselves more employable and more attractive to a digital organisation like MSM.
