Values.

Tesco Careers

No one tries harder
for customers.

Understanding people – customers, colleagues, communities – and what matters to them, and then trying to make those things better, is at the heart of Tesco. It’s about listening to people and talking to them using all the tools at our disposal – from Clubcard data to social media – and then acting by changing and innovating to meet their needs.

We treat people how
they want to be treated.

We know that looking after our colleagues in a culture of trust and respect is essential to the success of Tesco. Where colleagues feel recognised and rewarded for the work they do together, where they have the opportunity to get on and where they are supported in their development as they move through their careers in the busines – they in turn try their hardest for customers.

Every little help makes
a big difference.

Every little help makes a big difference – it’s the value we live by to ensure we serve our customers, colleagues and their communities a little better every day. It really captures how, when we add up all the small things we do, Tesco can make a big difference to the issues customers, colleagues, communities and wider society care about.

What helps us to live
our values every day.

At Tesco we believe that the five behaviors below are the most important
to focus on when we want to be successful and satisfied in our job.

Collaboration

We trust each other to achieve more together. We make good relationships with others and create team spirit everywhere.

Empathy

We try to understand how others feel and respon appropriately. It’s abou being warm and welcomin ininteractions with others.

Responsiveness

We make decisions based on our values and what’s right for our customers and colleagues.

Resilience

We know ourselves well and how to be in our best. We integrate home and work to achieve a balance that’s right for us. We stay positive and inspire others.

Innovation

We follow the trends and opportunities to improve our work. We’re connected to the latest thinking inside and outside the business

We care about
diversity.

Tesco is an equal opportunity employer, we’re trying our best to be the employer of choice for a lot of candidates regardless of their origin, beliefs or views. In Central Europe we are proud to employ disabled colleagues.

We have representatives of more than 40 different nationalities from 5 different continents working in our stores, DCs and offices. You will identify 7 different nations represented in our Leadership Team. But our inclusion culture is much more than just about your gender, origin or sexual preferences. We try to embrace the differences in mindset, attitude and ways of working. We offer flexible modern working environment with an informal and friendly culture to allow you being yourself and being at your best. We will be monitoring & reviewing your contribution to the overall company success but not your hairstyle, hobby nor views on the world.
