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 and 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.
As an Analyst in the team there are lots of interesting problems to solve. You could be analysing which products need to be reduced in price to minimise waste each day, or how to automatically supply enough extra burgers and lettuces for barbecues over a hot and sunny weekend. You could be giving presentations on the newest innovation in big data analytics or engaging with suppliers to drive benefits throughout the supply chain.
Based within a team of change managers, analysts and data scientists, you’ll be working on projects that make significant, lasting changes to the UK’s biggest retailer. The team's initiatives and ideas are based in data-driven insight, collaboration with Tesco colleagues and our partnership with suppliers. By measuring changes in the office, visiting stores or working with suppliers you will see the business improvement and the big benefits to everyday life for customers, colleagues and producers.
The nature of this role means that it is suitable to be filled by either an Analyst or a Senior Analyst. For consideration as a Senior Analyst you must have a minimum of two years’ experience in an Analytical role and meet the requirements outlined below.
The Hiring Manager for this vacancy is Richard John

Programming skills are a bonus (primarily SQL, but also python) however not required for the Analyst role – a large proportion of our analysts join with limited SQL knowledge, the aptitude to learn technical skills quickly is enough - everything can be taught on the job through a variety of Tesco-led training courses. Any work experience in retail or systems /analytics will be beneficial to your application.
Roles are available full time or part time.
We offer excellent benefits that help make Tesco a great place to work! These include but are not limited to:

Our vision at Tesco is to become every customer's favourite way to shop, whether they are at home or out on the move. Our core purpose is ‘Serving our customers, communities and planet a little better every day’. Serving means more than a transactional relationship with our customers. It means acting as a responsible and sustainable business for all stakeholders, for the communities we are part of and for the planet.
We are proud to have an inclusive culture at Tesco where everyone truly feels able to be themselves. At Tesco, we not only celebrate diversity, but recognise the value and opportunity it brings. We're committed to creating a workplace where differences are valued, and make sure that all colleagues are given the same opportunities. We're a big business with diverse working patterns and many business areas which means that we can find something that works for you. Everyone is welcome at Tesco.
We have recently announced that we will be moving towards a more blended working week – combining office and remote working. Our offices will continue to be where we connect, collaborate and innovate. Please talk to us to about how this can work for you.
