Head Office programme

Our Head Office programme is for graduates who are attracted by the busy pace of retail but who also have a passion for food and delivering great service to customers. From your first day on the office programme, you’ll be part of a great team. You could be producing materials or reports that will be used in stores, head office, by senior leaders, or by your immediate team. Sometimes graduate roles can be undervalued in organisations but in Tesco you get a lot of responsibility from early on with a great support network around you.

Rotations

The Head Office Programme is split into two rotations, one will be a stretch role, something you didn’t study in college, and for the other rotation we’ll try to find you something related to your area of study. We want to ensure that you get the most out of each rotation so it will be structured around a role with clear deliverables within the placement. This means you’ll know where you stand and can plot your success along the way.

We love food

There are tonnes of opportunities to give your feedback on our products at our quality tasting panels in our test kitchen. There are lots of these throughout the year where you can blind taste test our food and drink products. It’s also great for chatting and getting to know all sorts of different people from around the business.
