Application Process

To apply for a job in one of our Offices you will need to register with us, and create a profile. You can keep your profile up to date with your latest skills and experiences.

When you find a job you want to apply for, you will then just complete the online application form for that role. Once you have completed your application we will review it to see if you have the skills that we are looking for.

The first stage in our selection process is a telephone interview, and if you are successful we will invite you in for a face-to-face interview with the team you have applied to work in.

You may also be asked to participate in a series of online verbal and numerical reasoning tests, depending on the role you have applied for, and possibly a second face-to-face interview.

If you successfully complete all stages of the recruitment process, you will complete a company induction to welcome you to the Tesco team.

To apply for a job in one of our Stores, Distribution or Dotcom Centres, you will need to register with us, and create a profile. You can keep your profile up to date with your latest skills and experiences.

When you find a job you want to apply for, you will then just complete the online application form for that role. Once you have completed your application we will review it to see if you have the skills that we are looking for.

If successful we will invite you in for an interview at the location that you have applied to work in – for management roles there will be an initial telephone interview, before the face to face interview.

You will also be given the opportunity to 'have a go' at the type of work you have applied for – this could be on the shop floor, or completing a driving assessment – whilst completing the face to face interview. This will give you the opportunity to decide if Tesco is right for you and if we think you are right for Tesco.

After this, you'll hear back from us within 10 days – hopefully to welcome you on board!

Hints and Tips

We want you to enjoy the recruitment process, and to show us the real you - here are some hints and tips from Tesco recruiters.

  • Researching

    This site, and our PLC website, are great places to find out more about who we are and where we’re going.

    Our “Frequently asked questions” area is also really useful.

    You can call, email or contact us via social media, with any other questions, or feedback.





     

  • Registering and applying

    You'll need to set up a profile in our recruitment system before you can apply for roles

    Please complete it as fully as you can.

    You can search for roles by Job Function, Location, or by using a Keyword.

    Our system is proactive - it can let you know of great roles that might be right for you.

  • Preparing

    Practice on-line tests before taking them for real.

    We’ll explain clearly why we’re asking you to take them.

    Interview and assessment centre dress code is usually “business wear”, but some business areas dress more casually.

    It should be clear from the invitation what to wear but if you’re not sure, let us know.
     

  • Meeting us

    Before an interview, consider the questions we’re likely to ask you. This website, and the job description, should help

    At assessment centres we can find out about you, and you about us, in a more natural setting

    Our invite to interview or assessment centre will give details of the day

    If anything isn’t clear, just ask

Training and Development

We have a clear vision for learning and development. We want to inspire all our colleagues to learn and have the skills they need to be their very best, now and in the future.

We’re incredibly proud of our Tesco Academies in the UK, Ireland and Korea. They’re part of our commitment to world-class learning and development.

We’re innovating to provide learning and development that really makes what matters to colleagues better. We combine traditional training with online and app-based learning.

The “Academy Online” virtual academy lets colleagues build skills and access inspiring training right across the Tesco Group, wherever they are and whatever they do.

Our recently launched “Academy on the Go” mobile learning app delivers excellent, bite-sized training whenever and wherever colleagues need it.

Our Group Management Programme is just one example of our excellent development programmes. We work with some of our most promising colleagues in the early stages of their careers to give them stretching learning experiences right across the business.

Creating jobs in our local communities

Wherever we’re based, we want to have a positive impact. We make sure that when we create jobs, we do what we can to give them to local people. When we open a store we truly engage with the local community, because our customers are our community.
