Being a graduate at Tesco


Find out more

We want to help our graduates to grow their skills, reach their potential and feel inspired. We believe the most rewarding way for our graduates to learn is through the responsibilities of real-life business experience which we will give them from day one as well as a supported self-led learning path that is personal to them. They can apply their knowledge, by being innovative, working collaboratively across the business, and being responsiveness to the business' needs. We want our graduates 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 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. 

What you need to know

We offer a competitive salary starting at £28,000 depending on the programme. Our graduates are also eligible for our bonus payment, depending on the performance of themselves and the business.

You’ll get 20 days holiday pro rata plus a personal day (which you can use for things like Christmas shopping or your birthday!). You’ll also receive exclusive benefits like discounted cinema tickets and half price entrance to theme parks, not to mention 10% off at Tesco once you’ve been here for six months.

Even though retirement may be many years away, we offer a Tesco Retirement Savings Plan. Colleagues can decide how much they save, and we will match contributions up to a maximum of 7.5%.

We champion a flexible approach, with hot desking, ample meeting rooms, and informal meeting spaces. The Welwyn Garden City campus also offers cool outdoor spaces, as well as ping pong tables and table football. In the office, you’ll get a laptop, supporting you to take advantage of our flexible working policy (so you can work remotely!).

We encourage self-led development and we support this with a range of e-learning and face to face learning sessions. You will be able to use your own initiative to identify your own learning needs and choose the right training for you. You will also have the opportunity to learn from others to help you grow your skills.
