Our two-year Business Graduate programme will ensure you gain a breadth of valuable business experience early in your career. You’ll have the opportunity to do two, 12 month placements in two different areas of our business, giving you the broadest experience possible to maximise your opportunity to learn and develop your skills. You can find out a bit more about the different business areas here.

You might start your programme by making improvements to our supply chain - developing, trialling and rolling out a solution, so that customers can continue to get the right products, at the right time. Then you could spend your second year in the Property team, recommending where to open stores, or maybe our Food team, finding, developing and managing supplier partners to deliver our customer propositions and ensuring product quality is achieved and maintained. Based in our Welwyn Garden City office, you’ll either be supporting a key project or within a role, with the potential to positively affect the lives of millions of customers, as well as colleagues, communities and our planet!


This breadth of experience will help you think about your future at Tesco, beyond being a graduate, as there is a wide variety of job opportunities for you to apply for as you finish your programme. You should be well-equipped to excel in a role that plays to your unique strengths and interests utilising the range of skills you’ve developed over the two years.

Who we are looking for

We’re looking for self-motivated and curious graduates, who can work collaboratively in our business and have a passion to do the right thing for customers and colleagues. We want our graduates to be themselves at work and be open to new experiences whilst building new skills for their future.

Working at our Welwyn Garden City campus

Our leafy, green campus is just 10 minutes’ walk from the centre of Welwyn Garden City with its many shops, restaurants, pubs and sports facilities. Close to the A1, and with frequent trains running to Finsbury Park in just 20 minutes (free shuttle buses take you between the station and office), the campus is well connected to the surrounding area.


On campus, you’ll find subsidised restaurants and coffee shops, as well as a Tesco Express to pick up your lunch or last-minute essentials. You can join the on-site Nuffield Health gym, which has state-of-the-art fitness equipment, two studios for group classes, plus treatment rooms (membership costs £23.50 per month).
