About Tesco

Our vision at Tesco is to become every customer's favourite way to shop, whether they are at home or out on the move. Our core purpose is ‘Serving our customers, communities and planet a little better every day’. Serving means more than a transactional relationship with our customers. It means acting as a responsible and sustainable business for all stakeholders, for the communities we are part of and for the planet.

Serious about Security

We have millions of customers worldwide, and protecting their data is our highest priority. We’re looking to recruit cyber security experts – “Petabyte Protectors” - who excel at challenges on this scale – join our team to use your strategic and tactical moves to stay ahead of the game.

We are proud to have an inclusive culture at Tesco where everyone truly feels able to be themselves. At Tesco, we not only celebrate diversity, but recognise the value and opportunity it brings. We're committed to creating a workplace where differences are valued, and make sure that all colleagues are given the same opportunities. We're a big business with diverse working patterns and many business areas which means that we can find something that works for you. Everyone is welcome at Tesco.

NOTE: Should you be successful in your application, your offer will be subject to and conditional upon you providing your bank account details, and evidence of right to work for the duration of the programme on your agreed start date. 

You’ll have the opportunity to deliver part of a real project, enabling you to develop your programme skills, such as influencing business partners, managing complicated plans and communicating effectively within technical programmes of work. You’ll work with technology specialists across the globe, learn on the job and be supported to give you great skills and experience. 
 
No two days are the same in our Technology team. You could be planning the rollout of our new checkouts to 2000+ stores, co-ordinating the development of a new payroll system or working on the development of brand-new mobile apps for our customers. Technology continues to change the face of retail and ours leads the way.

During your 10-week paid programme you'll be at the heart of our decision making, planning and co-ordinating the development and/or deployment of technology solutions in a safe and sustainable way. You'll work collaboratively with multiple teams across the business to find the best solutions for our customers, including communicating, planning and delivering them effectively. You'll ensure our solutions align to strategic goals, manage risks, create plans and track progress, working with software engineers and partners.

A successful internship with us can guarantee your place on our Technology Programme graduate programme when you graduate - before you’ve even started your final year of study!

Who we are looking for

We're looking for interns with a strong technical understanding, a drive to take on complex projects and a passion for clear, effective communication and problem-solving. You’ll enjoy working as part of a team, be a great communicator and enjoy delivery and fast-paced change. We want our interns to have an enthusiasm for technology and an appetite to take on our biggest challenges.

What’s the difference between Product and Programme?

A Product Manager will translate customer problems into pieces of development for a technology product, working closely with software engineers, whilst also looking at the bigger picture of the product roadmap, strategy & vision. A Technical Programme Manager will collaborate with all affected teams to create a plan, manage technical risks, issues and dependencies, communicate with all partners and generally co-ordinate the technical aspects of a piece of work.

Benefits

We offer excellent benefits that help make Tesco a great place to work! These include but aren’t limited to:

  • Annual bonus scheme 
  • Holiday starting at 20 days plus a personal day rising to 22 days after 12 months (plus 8 Bank holidays)
  • Retirement savings plan - save between 4% and 7.5% and Tesco will match your contribution
  • Life Assurance - 5 x contractual pay
  • Great colleague deals and discounts, saving you money on everyday purchases, eating out and utility bills for the home
  • Opportunities to get on - take advantage of our ongoing learning opportunities and award-winning training, to help you achieve the job and career you want

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
