About Us

At Tesco, we're passionate about serving our customers, communities and planet a little better every day and our colleagues are at the heart of that. A business of our scale - 13,000 colleagues and 151 stores in Ireland provides a whole host of opportunities. No two days are the same here at Tesco and this, coupled with our fast-paced and vibrant culture, creates a very rewarding environment to work in we are really proud of. We are also very proud that Tesco Ireland has been certified as a Great Place to Work for the fourth year in a row. This recognition is a testament to our culture which is created by each and every one of our colleagues

We also welcome individuality and uniqueness. We always want our colleagues to feel they can be themselves at work and we’re committed to helping them be at their best. We’re building an inclusive workplace, a place to actively celebrate the cultures, personalities and preferences of our colleagues who share the same purpose, to serve our customers a little better every day, and you could have a unique part to play in this.

We have run successful early career programmes across our business for many years and are now delighted to be expanding our offering with some new exciting early career programmes.

About our Early Career Programmes

All of our early career programmes are focused on learning and development to support with your growth. From technical skills to helping you to better understand yourself and develop your leadership behaviours. You could spend time working in a different area of the business or go on a “Farm to Fork” or “Warehouse to Store” tour to understand the product journey in more detail.

We understand that the working environment means a lot. We strive to create a welcoming atmosphere and recognise our colleagues who help people to be the best they can be through our Values Awards, our Fun@Work activities and colleague celebrations throughout the year. These really help set our culture apart and some of the reasons why we have been certified as a Great Place to Work for the fourth year in a row.

We know that arriving in a big organisation that employs around 13,000 people can be daunting so rest assured, you’ll have all the support you need throughout the programme. You’ll have close support from your line manager and you’ll regularly meet your “buddy”. Our graduates will also have a mentor who’ll be a senior leader from within the business. You’ll have a ready-made network to support you through the programme!
