Becoming a Manager in a Tesco Lotus Distribution Centre will put you right at the heart of our operation. You’ll be part of a management team, leading your colleagues from the front and doing what’s needed so that our customers have what they want, when they want it.

It’s a chance to put your skills, experience and instincts to the test: making sure our Distribution Centres operate in the most effective and efficient way, chasing opportunities, finding better, safer ways of working and getting things just right for our customers.

You’ll be a role model, helping your colleagues to deliver goods to stores accurately, improving availability and making sure everything is safe and compliant. Meanwhile, you’ll be getting everyone stuck in with community projects and proving just how much we can achieve together.

You’ll also get to grow your own team – by spotting talent, making sure your team is trained, and giving them the feedback and support they need to be their best.

This role is what management should be: leading your colleagues and making a difference for our customers.

• Your Distribution Centre Manger
• Your management team colleagues
• Your colleagues
• Your community

This is a hands-on job where things move fast. As a Manager you’ll have all eyes on you to make sure everyone is fired up, focused and pulling in the same direction. To help you flourish in such a fast-paced role we’ve got a well-defined way of working that you’ll be expected to master.

It’s a big commitment: you’ll need to work shifts to fit the Distribution Centre’s operation.

You’ll be someone who can lead and inspire a team, while being ready to roll up your sleeves and do what’s needed to give our customers great service. You’ll need previous management experience and be able to meet targets, provide training and follow guidelines.

Above all, we need you to put people at the heart of everything you do:

  • talking to colleagues, to share and encourage new ideas and best practice
  • being warm and welcoming, and taking time to recognise and listen to others
  • building a strong team spirit and a network of relationships that stretches beyond the Distribution Centre

And to succeed you’ll have what it takes to be a leader:

  • looking ahead and seizing opportunities
  • acting quickly to do what’s right for colleagues and customers
  • thriving on change and leading people through it together
  • doing the right thing, even if plans aren’t working out
  • knowing how to be at your best – and exceeding expectations

We want you to always feel at ease in your new working environment. That’s why we’re doing everything we can to help you enjoy the work you do.

  • You’ll join a welcoming team that works on building strong, friendly relationships with customers and local communities.
  • All year round, you’ll receive benefits and rewards, including additional special offers on our products.
  • You’ll also get plenty of training and development opportunities, so you get as much support, feedback and chances to further your career as you need.
