Tesco was built with a simple mission – to be the champion for customers, helping them to enjoy a better quality of life and an easier way of living. This hasn’t changed. Customers want great products at great value which they can buy easily, and it’s Tesco’s job to deliver this in the right way for them. Tesco’s purpose is ‘Serving Britain’s customers a little better every day’. As a business, serving customers is at the heart of everything they do – from the colleagues in their stores to those in supporting roles within the office and distribution centres. Earlier this year, the Heart building opened at their Welwyn Garden City campus. It has been designed as a vibrant, colourful and open building, which provides teams with flexible spaces and is a place for colleagues to learn, collaborate and innovate. It’s a place to truly experience the Tesco brand. It also offers an Express store, new subsidised gym with treatment facilities, all-weather sports pitch and a coffee shop.
We want to help our graduates and interns to grow their skills, reach their potential and feel inspired. We believe the most rewarding way for them to learn is through the responsibilities of real-life business experience which we will give them from day one. They can apply their knowledge, by being innovative, working collaboratively across the business, and being responsiveness to the business' needs. We want our graduates and interns to feel welcome so there's always a buddy or manager on hand to support them.
A business of our scale provides a wide variety of opportunities. We run successful store, distribution and office programmes, and support our graduates and interns to develop the career path that’s right for them. No two days are the same here and this, coupled with our fast-paced and vibrant culture, is something we're really proud of. We are committed to flexible working to give our colleagues the chance to manage their work around their lifestyles. We want our colleagues to be their best at work and at home. It's important to us that everyone feels welcome and feels part of the team.
