About the role

Our business was built with a simple mission: to be the champion for customers – to help everyone who shops with us enjoy a better quality of life and an easier way of living.

Over the years we’ve done this through lots of little, helpful differences: new stores and ways of shopping; service which saves time and makes life simpler; helping to make great food available to all.

Our mission is the same today. Our customers are hard-pressed for both time and money. They want great value and great service. They expect great products which they can buy easily. Wherever we work, they want us to do the right thing – for them, their communities and the environment. It’s our job to work hard to make life easier, every day.

With our reach, our skills, our expertise, our passion and our capabilities, we have everything inside our business we need to succeed in the future. The keys to Tesco’s future already exist within our business. Those keys are in the hands of every single colleague who works for us.

Around the world, Tesco is made up of over half a million colleagues. If every one of us gave one customer an experience of Tesco which was better than they expected every day, we’d change the views of millions of people every week. That is the change we want to achieve over the coming years.

Small actions, big difference. Helping to make our customers’ lives easier, every day. In other words: Every Little Helps

About The People Transformation Team

The People Transformation at Tesco is about earning the trust of our people in a simple and helpful way. For our people to focus on giving customers a great experience of shopping at Tesco we must give them a great experience of working for Tesco.

The Transformation will involve many aspects of change. Example work-streams include establishing the listening channels for the experience journeys our people live through while working at Tesco, designing the shared service operating model, digital product ownership for all People Systems, Change Management, Improving Data Privacy governance and process.

The work is high-profile and offers exposure to senior Directors within Tesco, combined with the opportunity to deliver significant benefits to the business.
