Our Insight

When we visited Tesco, we were amazed by their range of facilities; they had an on-site gym, supermarket, football pitch, and even their very own beehives!

It was like a small town – with a real campus feel – so you wouldn’t have to worry about the transition from University. Tesco may be a big employer, but they understand that every little helps – and the little details they have on site are designed to help you settle right in.

After speaking to the employees, it became clear that you can pursue a variety of different avenues at Tesco. Whether it’s taking on a different role, changing your area of expertise or joining a new team – you don’t have to change companies to change your career path.

We often visit our advertisers, spending a full day touring their facilities, speaking to their graduates/interns and working with their recruiters on content for their Company Hubs.

We can get a real ‘insight’ into their working environment, their culture and the things they are working on. We also learn about their recruitment processes and the things each company looks for in their ideal candidates.

It’s useful stuff for you to know if you’re considering applying to them – so we thought we’d share it!
