I started at Tesco 14 years ago as an assistant during my university study and after graduation I moved to People department, where I’ve been still working, for more than 12 years. I’ve been responsible for huge range of various topics – I took care of our graduates, I was responsible for recruitment, learning and development, I worked in UK in our Headquarter, I managed different projects across Central Europe, supported our online shopping and all stores in Czech Republic. I’m currently working as a People Business partner for Head office in Central Europe.
Every day at Tesco is different, and even after so many years I’m still learning new things, meeting interesting people I can learn from and who inspire me. Variety of job, flexibility, cooperation across countries and a great team are the reasons why I still enjoy my job and feel connected to Tesco.
I like that our job is really varied. In retail, we are used to frequent changes and dynamic environment, so I often jump into new situations which I haven’t faced yet. And that’s what I like. I support 4 countries (Czech, Slovakia, Poland and Hungary) so I often meet a lot of interesting people, with different experience and story, and we can inspire each other.
Tesco is a big company which cares of their employees the best it can. We value our employees and we provide the environment where they are respected for who they are. The relationships are informal and friendly, and our colleagues have many opportunities for personal and professional development and growth – it’s just up to their will. What I really appreciate here, is the flexibility. I’m a mother, so it’s a great benefit for me that I can often work from home or plan my time according to my family needs.
