Careers at Tesco come in many different forms. Which is just what you'd expect from a successful and varied business like ours. And with 470,000 people worldwide and over 2,300 stores in the UK alone, we can offer the kind of diversity of opportunity that you're unlikely to find anywhere else. But it's not just the variety that makes Tesco a rewarding business to join. We’re doing lots to help the environment and local communities too – from using our own Tesco train and barge for stock deliveries, to donating £57m to charities in 2008 including Marie Curie Cancer Care and Cancer Research. In this section, you can discover more about our culture, our work environment and, most importantly, where you fit in. And to back up what we tell you, you can hear it from some of our graduates who've already been through the process.
CAREERS AT TESCO Tesco career paths are just about as wide as our business. And, as one of our future business leaders, we’ll expect you to take every opportunity to broaden your knowledge and progress through the business. Once you complete your graduate programme, you’ll have developed a full range of technical, project and people skills. With those skills under your belt you’ll be more than ready to move into a larger role with more responsibility and accountability. And by the time you’ve built on these skills, the world, as they say, will be your oyster. Well, the world of Tesco, anyway. Which should be big enough for the time being. So if you decide that you’d like to further your career in another Tesco business area, we can help you make it happen.
