Join Us. The Co-operative Group and Doris IT.
Doris began working with The Co-op Group in 2013 to bring in the next generation of IT, Business and Digital professionals.
The Co-op is an organisation founded on a different set of values and principles to the average organisation. Their principles are of great importance to them and they aim to find a better, fairer way of doing business.
Their values are:
They share Doris’s belief that giving everyone the opportunity to develop is what creates successful projects and teams. One of their key aims is about giving back to the community. They show a genuine concern for the community and work-hard to support them and the local economy.
Doris is currently working in four areas within the Co-op Group; Insurance, Funeral Care, Food and Digital. The many exciting and diverse branches of the Co-op Group make it a collaborative and forward thinking organisation, all supporting each other to achieve their goals. Doris has been given the opportunity to support them in finding the next generation of talent, placing them in the thick of the action.
One of our Doris team members at Co-op Insurance, Andrew, gave me an insight into what it’s like to be on assignment with them for Doris:
‘I recently attended an event which was focused on how The Co-op Group can work effectively, efficiently and save time. Their focus is on moving to an agile way of working to benefit the employees and the customers.
In the office they have a huge focus on the membership as well as fundraising activities which get everybody involved and encourages a great community feel. It also gives employees a sense of what their hard work achieves at ground level so we feel like we are adding real value.
They are dedicated to involving SME’s in user research to get feedback and update their methods to fit with the needs of the business. Doris works with The Co-op to build talented resources and promote next generation talent.
Having a Doris mentor who has worked in The Co-op and experienced the organisational ethics and environment is really helpful to me and as a result I have learnt a lot over the last year about my career. I have also had exposure to a leading Doris customer.’
Thank you to everyone at The Co-op Group and Doris who have supported us and enabled the next generation to succeed.
