Current position: Buying manager
I started my career at Tesco in 2014 as an intern during my university studies. I’ve gone through the different roles and departments and currently I’m working as a Buying manager. Thanks to my job I can influence what we sell in our stores and choose the best quality for our customers.
Introducing the Head office departments.
Our Product teams work across our food and general merchandise categories, covering all stages of the product lifecycle and making sure that we deliver the products that customers want
We proudly put our customers at the heart of everything we do: we play a key role in this, making sure the business lives up to our brand promise of ‘Every Little Helps’. To do that, we create compelling and unique customer propositions based onbelievable insights, and we communicate those propositions to customers.
Business Support and Retail Operations
Our Retail Operations and Business Support teams are at the heart of Tesco, making sure that everything runs smoothly and safely for both our customers and colleagues.
Core of our business, off ering a huge variety of roles and specialisms. You could join our team of auditors providing insight and advice to the Board and management; or work with our property experts to make sure money is spent wisely on the investments that will benefit the business most.
Permeates our entire business from supply chain to stores, and of course online too. The Technology team is responsible for driving change and delivering value by building great digital products and infrastructure for our customers and colleagues — from the systems in our stores, to the websites our customers use, and applications our offi ce teams interact with every day.
Without our colleagues, Tesco just wouldn’t be Tesco. That’s why we call our Human Resources function the People team. Our colleagues are at the heart of what we do: serving our customers better every day, so we’re passionate about creating an environment where they can do their best.
It’s our responsibility to look after each stage of sourcing and building a store as well as overseeing our estate. We manage it all – from evaluating a potential site to establishing the store itself; from maintaining it once it’s opened to ensuring that we provide the best services to our customers.
In Supply Chain, we’re passionate about giving our customers what they want and when they want it. Our aim is to get thousands of products from factories and farms around the world to the shelfs (virtual and physical) so that we can satisfy millions of customers every week – simply put: right product, right place, right time.
we are the one building trust and loyalty among our colleagues, customers, media, local communities and non-profit organizations through accurate, but also creative and modern communication. We manage relationships between Tesco and governance and drive interesting CSR activities. Overall, it takes professionals to create such a communication.
you probably know Tesco as a place where you like to go shopping. It takes many specialists to create such a place, for example it woudn´t be possible without our lawyers. They make sure that everything we do is according to the law and they give legal support to other teams in our company.
this team is responsible for leasing our tenant untis and taking care of shopping malls in our stores. There is no space to be bored. We spend time not only int the office, but also travellling. We meet interesting people and we like challenges.
the main priority and focus is to create safe environment for our colleagues and customers. Other areas we are working on are the following: shrink management, store stock takes, whistleblowing, fraud management, internal investigations, crisis and risk management. Majority of our work is very cross-functional, so there is a great opportunity to get in touch with many different colleagues and understand the business from very broad perspective.
Why to work
you will get the opportunity to work on many interesting projects and take part in many activities such as Tesco summer games Christmas party or doing CSR activities together as a team.
it’s not a cliché at Tesco. Your outputs are what counts, not when or from where you do the job. Remote management, home office and trusting our colleagues is what you will get by joining us.
a huge range of opportunities across lots of different business areas. The core of our business are our stores, but without the departments which make sure that everything goes smoothly, we would not be able to do the best for our customers. There are different possible career paths waiting for you at Tesco.
