  • We’ve designed this website to allow you to explore Tesco Lotus and the people and roles we have.
  • We’ve also tried to paint a picture about where the business is now, and the exciting journey ahead of us.
  • It’s a good idea to have a look round our careers site, and also our company website.

  • The first thing to do is always check our frequently asked question – loads of questions we get asked have answers already on the website.
  • However, if you need us, there are a few ways to contact us – you can reach us via email, or via social media. We get a lot of applications and queries so it’s not always easy to reach us by phone, but often we’ll call you to respond to a question we get from you online.

Training and development

We have a clear vision for learning and development. We want to inspire all our colleagues to learn and have the skills they need to be their very best, now and in the future.

We’re incredibly proud of our Tesco Academies in the UK and Korea. They’re part of our commitment to world-class learning and development.

We’re innovating to provide learning and development that really makes what matters to colleagues better. We combine traditional training with online and app-based learning.

The “Academy Online” virtual academy lets colleagues build skills and access inspiring training right across the Tesco Group, wherever they are and whatever they do.

Our recently launched “Academy on the Go” mobile learning app delivers excellent, bite-sized training whenever and wherever colleagues need it.

Our Group Management Programme is just one example of our excellent development programmes. We work with some of our most promising colleagues in the early stages of their careers to give them stretching learning experiences right across the business.

Creating jobs in our local communities

Wherever we’re based, we want to have a positive impact. So for the past ten years we’ve made sure that when we create jobs, they go to the local people who need them most. It’s part of our commitment to providing thousands of jobs in some of the UK’s most deprived areas.
