"The speed at which our business operates makes a career in administration fast-paced, varied and challenging"

 

PACT – short for The Personal Assistant Community at Tesco – was founded by a group of PAs across the UK business. It’s a way for all Tesco PAs to communicate with each other day-to-day, and also acts as a forum for sharing knowledge, contacts and best practices. If you join us, you’ll take part in the induction programme, and it’ll also be an invaluable support network as you get to grips with the job.

We need Administrators and Personal Assistants (PA) in every department of our business. So whatever you’re interested in, there should be a role that appeals to you. If that’s fashion, you might like to work in our Clothing business. If you’re more interested in Science, you could work in our Trading Law and Technical teams. And different teams need different skills, too. If coordinating international events appeals to you, you might be well suited to a job in our Group Communications or Marketing teams.

You really do need to be a people person. Because you’ll sit at the heart of your team, you’ll need to build a good relationship with everyone in it – you’ll often be their go-to person. This also means you’ll need to be reliable, with excellent communication skills, a strong attention to detail, and great organisational skills. You’ll find that no two days are exactly the same, so you’ll need to be flexible and able to work fast to deliver results. And you’ll also need excellent computing skills, particularly typing and database management.
