Business Graduate Programme (This Job is now closed)

Our 18 month Business Graduate programme (Sep 2023 to Mar 2025) is for Graduates who are attracted by the busy pace of retail but who also have a passion for delivering great service to customers. This programme will ensure you gain a breadth of valuable business experience early in your career. You’ll have the opportunity to do two, 9 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 might start your programme by making improvements to our supply chain - developing, trialing 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. As well as completing core work for your function, we have developed a structured 18-month plan that offers upskilling workshops, personal development learnings, field trips and great networking opportunities. 

Based out of our Dun Laoghaire office (Hybrid), you’ll either be supporting a key project or within a role, with the potential to positively affect the lives of thousands 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 18 months.

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.

Who are we 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.
