"Our challenge is to create a successful multichannel offer for a wide selection of products that excite all our customers"

 

We offer customers so much more than just great food ranges. Our customers in-store, online or via Tesco Direct have access to over 15,000 General Merchandise products. Everything from our exciting new home furnishing range, to toys, sports equipment, electrical appliances, stationery and entertainment items – we have it.  And that’s not just for the UK; customers in all our markets can shop our fantastic ranges.

In General Merchandise, we’re revolutionising our customers’ entire shopping experience and shaking up our proposition, working with some of the most recognized global brands.

We’re also developing exciting Tesco own-label ranges. Take our android tablet, the Hudl. It offers customers great technology at a great price. One unique feature of the Hudl is the little button that opens up a whole world of Tesco. With a quick tap, our customers can be shopping, downloading movies, watching the latest TV box sets or listening to music.

We’re looking for the best talent out there – people who are able to understand our customers and meet their needs, are passionate about product and delivering the latest trends, and who can help us to achieve our overall vision of being the world’s best multichannel retailer.

General Merchandise is a broad category, offering opportunities to progress your career across many areas.
You could find yourself working in any one of our diverse and successful teams. These include:

  • Tesco Partners: our invitation-only retail platform which sells products from hand-picked third parties across a range of categories. To see what it offers our customers, take a look at: www.tesco.com/direct/tesco-sellers.
     
  • Tesco Hudl: our tablet computer, and our first own-brand electronics product. The electronics we develop need to be great value for money, have broad appeal, drive adoption of Tesco online services, build loyalty, make a real difference to family life, and have the potential for future product generation.
     
  • Tesco Direct: our online, non-food platform covering products supplied by Tesco, Dropship Suppliers and our hand-picked sellers (Tesco Partners). It’s like a virtual shopping mall, giving customers a significantly enhanced range of goods, a high level of customer experience and the ability to see a variety of retailers across a broad range of categories. Visit www.tesco.com/direct/ to see what we offer our customers. 
     
  • Central Europe and Turkey General Merchandise: Tesco is the biggest multichannel retailer in Central Europe. There are over 1,100 stores across Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary and Turkey. We sell similar ranges to our UK business, and the Office team is based in the same building in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire but because we operate in five different countries, we also work very closely with the local offices there, to tailor our offer specifically to their markets. Knowledge of a Central European language would be an advantage for this role, as we often translate things like point of sale material, but it’s by no means essential, as English is the first language that we all use. 

We’re looking for someone who is excited by what we do and can bring their skills and experience to support and contribute to our plans for the future of Tesco General Merchandise.


You’ll need to be keen to play a part in defining, building and launching an ambitious and exciting range of products that could affect the lives of millions of customers for years to come.


If you’re highly motivated, with a passion for great products, then we’d like to hear from you.  
This could be the opportunity you have always been looking for….

Our vision is to be the world’s best multichannel retailer – and we’re growing globally all the time.

If you would like to join us on the journey to achieve this, now could be the time to catapult your career and become a team member in an exciting and fast paced, innovative part of the business.

And if you do, our talent planning team will make sure that you’re given the opportunity to get on and develop your career at Tesco.
