Who is Tesco?

At Tesco, we welcome diversity, individuality, and uniqueness. We always want our colleagues to feel they can be themselves at work and we’re committed to helping them be at their best. We’re building an inclusive workplace, a place to actively celebrate the cultures, personalities and preferences of our colleagues who share the same purpose, to serve our customers and planet a little better every day, and you’ll have a vital part to play. 

You’ll be given responsibility from day one, so you can gain confidence in your role through hands-on experience.

You’ll have access to a wide variety of workshops and resources, online or at Heart, our on-site training academy, to help you develop skills like building your network, adaptable thinking and leading change, as well as looking after your wellbeing. And don’t worry, you’ll be supported throughout your programme by your manager and your buddy. 

As a Disability Confident Employer, we’re committed to providing a fully inclusive and accessible recruitment process. If you require any reasonable adjustments as part of the recruitment process just let us know.
