Everyone's welcome

Here at Tesco, everyone's welcome. Equality, diversity and inclusion is really important to us - whoever you are, wherever you work and whatever you do.


We’re all unique in ways you can and can't see and we aim to attract, develop and nurture talent wherever it exists and build great teams which reflect our local communities so that we can provide the best possible service to our customers. We're committed to creating a workplace where differences are valued, and make sure that all colleagues are given the same opportunities.



The people we meet each day make our lives interesting, whether we’re at work or at home. We know how important it is to network, so that’s why colleagues in Tesco come together to create networks where people can chat and find out how others manage their careers, meet people in different areas of the business or even just share ideas. Some of our key networks are highlighted above and include LGBTQ+, BAME, Women at Tesco, Armed Forces at Tesco and Disability at Tesco.


We also have The Family Network which is a community of colleagues created to support each other before, during or on return from maternity, adoption or shared parental leave. It’s a friendly environment to share experiences and learning, offer advice, discuss any challenges and help each other take advantage of all the colleague benefits. It also helps colleagues stay connected during the time they’re away from the office, and helps them transition back to work.


Many older people wish to remain in work or semi-retire and our customers really value older people's experience. Recently we have formed The Retired Colleague Community brought together by Alumni and Retired Staff Associations (RSA) which enables colleagues to keep in touch with Tesco during their retirement.


UK Colleague Engagement Networks

We recognise the importance of career sponsorship, mentoring and networking to support the development of talent wherever it exists and we want to encourage our colleagues whose background or ‘traditional’ role in society has the potential to create barriers. 


Other groups

Through our Regeneration Partnership stores, we guarantee a significant proportion of jobs for long-term unemployed people. This is in addition to the work we do to attract applications through Jobcentre Plus to all our UK stores.
