Career Possibilites

Fantastic opportunities and experiences whatever your childs entry route 


    School Leavers and Apprentices

    Apprenticeships for school leavers are the perfect way for your son or daughter to get on the career ladder early. We could fast-track them up the business in no time, to senior roles within the organisation. Tesco is full of valuable life lessons, and therefore a great alternative to university.


    Summer Internships and Placements

    These can give your student son or daughter important practical experience and real insight into what we do. They will be encouraged to sample all aspects of working within Tesco, including social events and functioning as part of a team. There’s no better way for them to make an informed career choice than to spend time with us.



    These set great graduates up for a career path for life, and equip them with many skills that are vital for success in the workplace. We hope to challenge all of those on the scheme in a comfortable environment, helping them to meet their full potential. These schemes show your son or daughter how to embrace early responsibility, what it means to be entrepreneurial, and what it feels like to make great things happen - for colleagues, for customers, and for themselves.
