"Our job is to make sure that every one of our 75 million weekly global customers can get what they want – when, where and however they want it"
The Supply Chain Team is a global operation responsible for getting hundreds of millions of products from farms and factories to our millions of customers each and every day.
We've built our reputation on frequently reinventing our supply chain to respond to how our customers want to shop. In the 60s we were the first to design a supply chain to serve out of town supermarkets. In the 90s we supported the first 24 hour stores for the first time. And in 2000 we led the way in introducing online grocery shopping.
The demands on Tesco's supply chain have never been greater. Our customers want more flexibility in the way that they shop and demand an ever growing range of products.
You have the opportunity to be part of the team that responds to that challenge and again transforms Tesco's supply chain to provide outstanding value to our customers irrespective of how, where or what they want to shop.
When you start in our team we expect you to quickly make a difference, taking accountability for work that influences what happens in all our stores across the UK. With millions of customers each week, our store colleagues will be relying on you to exercise your responsibilities with skill and dedication.
Therefore we have to recruit the best people. We're looking for analytical problem solvers, energetic & creative thinkers, people that are passionate about our products and customers.
We hugely value our colleagues. We believe in and invest in a culture of learning, improvement and personal development. We encourage an inspiring, honest and fun culture in which you are supported to become the best you can be, whilst also being yourself at all times.
Only in Supply Chain can you experience the challenge of being part of a global operation, along with the opportunity to strategically influence and transform one of the UK's most important businesses.
The Supply Chain team is based in our Welwyn Garden City head office. We're made up of 3 divisions: Supply Chain Operations, Internal Consulting and Inbound Logistics Wholesale Operations. Each division contains several specialist teams.
Supply Chain Operations
In our UK Operations team, you can make an immediate impact by partnering with:
Transformation & Internal Consulting
Inbound Logistics & Wholesale Operations
With more than 30 million cases of food ordered every week from our suppliers, we manage one of the largest supply chains in the UK.
With over 3,300 stores and over 310,000 colleagues operating in Tesco, we ensure the right level of stock arrives in each shop, at the right time.
Forecast & Ordering
In Forecast & Ordering, we work closely with suppliers, buying teams and stores to forecast and manage supply of stock for Tesco, ensuring both in store and online customers have the freshest, best quality products available at all times of the day. Be it promotional volume, seasonal planning or small events like Reading Festival, we build plans based on what customers want on a local and national level and help store colleagues meet our customer needs.
We're maintaining our world-class supply chain by focusing on:
Transformation & Internal Consulting
In the Transformation team we are at the forefront of innovation, bringing together analytical problem solving with the experience of implementing large and complex change projects.
Our job is to understand the needs of our 23 million customers a week and manage the flow of products so whatever they want, we have available. We're constantly looking for ways to improve by adapting and innovating within the supply chain.
We work as internal consultants who apply an analytical approach to problems. By using advanced levels of mathematical modelling and algorithm design, we can analyse the impact of weather, special offers or markdowns on buying patterns. Predicting what we sell helps customers get when they want and helps stores not have too much stock or waste. As Tesco operates on such a large scale, even small changes can equate to millions of pounds of savings.
Alongside our work in the UK we also work with suppliers and colleagues from across the world to develop and deliver continuous improvement for the Tesco Group Supply Chain.
In Inbound Logistics & Wholesale Operations, we look after products from source, right through to the point when they land in our or our wholesale partners' distribution centres or stores.
It's a truly global operation, sourcing from over 70 countries and ensuring our customers get the best quality products, in the fastest time, at the best price in all the markets we sell Tesco product whilst always striving to reduce waste and minimise our impact on the environment.
However, we cannot achieve this alone. We work closely with the UK Supply Chain team and other Tesco operations teams around the world. We also collaborate with our commercial and sourcing colleagues, as well as our global network of suppliers.
