Food Graduate Scheme
Posted on Jan 15, 2019 by Tesco
We strive to give our customers what they want, when they want it. Our food team is at the forefront of our customer offer working with over 8,000 suppliers. This fast-paced and exciting environment gives our graduates a great opportunity to develop themselves and really drive our strategy and the growth of our business. We use insight and feedback to help deliver successful plans and bring new and exciting products to market.
Our food team is diverse and made up of lots of different categories including our Produce team who are transforming our approach to food waste and our Health & Wellness team who are supporting families to stay healthy. You may get the opportunity to work in one of these areas as well as our Household and Pet team or our Bakery team.
What you will be doing
Our two year programme will give you a breadth of experience into different areas of the Food team. No two days will be the same, one day you could be negotiating costs and selling, and another strategic planning and visiting supplier's factories. There will also be the opportunity to experience our different store formats and test new products with our Product Developers to decide the next trend we should go after. It's really rewarding to make an impact at such a large scale.
What we are looking for
Within the food team you will need to be driven, ambitious and willing to learn. It's not essential that you have any previous experience but it definitely helps if you have a strong commercial mind, are comfortable with data and curious of market trends and changes.
