I'm a parent

Starting out in a large organisation like ours can be a bit daunting so there's a team of colleagues for your daughter/son to turn to should they need: a line manager, a buddy, a mentor and a programme manager.

There are loads of ways your daughter/son can learn and develop whilst on their programme. From leadership and skills sessions at our onsite Training Academy, to online learning portals, we've got it covered. Some programmes also offer formal studies for a qualification, so they can earn as they learn.

Your daughter/son deserves to live a well-balanced life, plan for the future and enjoy a few extras along the way. Graduates and Apprentices can contribute to our Retirement Savings plan, and are also entitled to 10% discounts amongst other perks.

Here at Tesco, we believe our colleagues should be healthy and happy at work. We offer an onsite gym at the office, healthy meal options in our canteens, and free eye tests at our opticians. We also have a flexible working policy, so they can work from home, or flex their hours to suit within reason. It's things like this that help them to stay on top form.

It's not all work here at Tesco, it's also about making friends. From development days to pub quizzes, there are so many ways for your daughter/son to meet and get on with other like-minded people. There's also a society made up of fellow graduates and apprentices that organise social events.

If your daughter/son is successful in their application, we'll send them a guide on the local areas to support in their relocation. We also add all of the graduate and apprenticeship intake to a Facebook group, to allow them to connect with one another and to help them to find people to live with.
