What’s in it for you

Our 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. From your first day on the business programme, you’ll be part of a great team. You could be producing materials or reports that will be used in stores, head office, by senior leaders, or by your immediate team. You will also get to work on a collaborative project with other graduates. 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. 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.

The Business Graduate Programme is split into two placements; one will be a stretch role, something you didn’t study in college, and for the other placement we’ll try to find you something related to your area of study. We want to ensure that you get the most out of each placement so it will be structured around a role with clear deliverables within the placement. This means you’ll know where you stand and can plot your success along the way.
