Technology Cyber Security

We care about cyber security, and it's critical that we protect our data and systems. You’ll receive specific cyber security training and real projects to work on, so you can develop your skills and knowledge. You’ll work as part of a global cyber security team, collaborating with, and learning from a range of specialists.


Our cyber security team protect our organisation. We use the latest technologies to increase visibility and protection of systems, services, and data. To do this, we need to stay ahead of the latest threats and continuously improve our tooling, procedures and processes. We work collaboratively with our software and systems engineering teams to support security throughout the development lifecycle. We also build proactive monitoring and responses to security events.


You’ll develop a broad knowledge of cyber security, completing placements across a range of security functions from security operations to vulnerability management, security testing, and monitoring and capability. You’ll have the opportunity to work on incident response, security platforms, cyber assurance and much more. You’ll also contribute to a global cyber defence effort by evaluating, securing systems, and responding to incidents.


Shizelle joined us on the Graduate Programme and took the time to share her experiences.  She talks about her feelings of imposter syndrome after university, trying to find a role and how family and the Tesco Graduate Programme, helped her find her path - Shizelle's experience.

Who we are looking for

We’re looking for graduates who want to be part of a cross-functional, diverse and global team. While it’s not essential you have a degree in computer science or a Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) subject, you must be able to demonstrate your technical ability and a passion for cyber security. This is assessed during the application process.

Working at our Welwyn Garden City campus

Our leafy, green campus is 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. We also have our Heart Building, a place where colleagues can connect and come together, to unlock innovation and collaboration and a place where they can network and socialise. Plus we have an on-site Nuffield Health gym, which has state-of-the-art equipment, studios for classes, plus treatment rooms (membership costs £23.50 per month).
