Application questions

Can I apply by post rather than online?

No, candidates need to apply for all roles via our careers website.

I've heard there's a new store opening close to me - where can I find out details on your recruitment for this?

If a new store is opening in your area please contact your local Jobcentre Plus. For management level positions in New Stores we'll advertise through this careers site and so please go to Job Search & Apply. Click here to view all new store vacancies.

Can I apply for more than one role?

Yes, we’d love you to apply for any vacancy which you think matches your skills, experience and career goals.

Can I apply if I don't have a full work-permit?

Anyone can apply for a job at Tesco – however to commence employment with us you will need to provide evidence of your Right to Work in the UK, such as a UK Passport or a student visa.

What can I expect at an interview?

We'll want to know all about your background and whether your skills are a good fit for the role. Values are important to us so we’d like to find out more about your personal values too. And, of course interviews work two ways; we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have for us as well.

If my application is unsuccessful, can I request feedback?

Unfortunately, due to the number of applications we receive, we won’t be able to provide specific feedback on your online application.

Do you have summer/Christmas holiday jobs available?

We do sometimes have temporary positions available in our stores. These are highlighted in the job search as temporary positions.

I am a student current working for Tesco part-time. I am moving house to take up a place at University. What can I do?

For students working at Tesco we offer the opportunity for you to register with us, and we will try and transfer you between term time and home stores, as you go back and forward to university during the year. Find out more within the Students section of this site or on our students website www.studentsattesco.com .

Where am I likely to be located?

Most head office roles are in Hertfordshire, in Cheshunt or Welwyn Garden City. Roles in our stores and distribution centres may arise anywhere in the UK. The location of the role will be made clear in the role description.

Is overseas travel mandatory at management level?

No, but many of our more senior roles do require some travel and if you are mobile, there may be a wider range of career opportunities open to you.

Will Tesco pay for me to relocate within the UK?

Possibly, depending on individual circumstances. If you think this may apply to you, please discuss it with us at interview.

What will I need to wear at work?

If you work in store, you'll probably wear a Tesco uniform, but this depends on your role. In head office, dress in some functions is 'business' most of the week and casual on Fridays, while some departments wear casual clothes all week.

Where can I find out more about Tesco as a company?

Please visit www.tescoplc.com.

What is Tesco's position on the environment and community?

We take our responsibilities as a member of both local and wider communities very seriously and we're always trying to do our bit to help. To read more about our commitments and activities, please visit www.tescoplc.com.

Location and Travel

Where am I likely to be located?

Most head office roles are in Hertfordshire, in Cheshunt or Welwyn Garden City. Retail and Depot opportunities may arise anywhere. Obviously we'll try to accommodate your preferences in the first instance, but to take up the best opportunities in our business you may want to move around.

Is overseas travel mandatory at management level?

No, but as our international operations grow, more roles do require some travel and if you are mobile, there may be a wider range of career opportunities open to you.

Will Tesco pay for me to relocate within the UK?

Possibly, depending on individual circumstances. If you think this may apply to you, please discuss it with us at interview.

Working Here

Will I have to wear a uniform?

If you work in store, you'll probably wear a Tesco uniform, but this depends on your role. In head office, dress in some functions is 'business' most of the week and casual on Fridays, while some departments wear casual clothes all week.

Are there lots of social activities?

There's a great team atmosphere in Tesco stores and people tend to work hard and play hard. Most people who work in office-based roles live reasonably locally and so there's generally quite a strong wider social scene here too, as well as great team spirit that can often mean after work get togethers for those who are interested. Plus there are all sorts of company events as well as discounts to shows and activities via our Extra Choices club.
