We lead the way in Tesco quality and responsibility. Our customers make millions of shopping trips every week – and they trust us to sell products that are safe, legal and of the right quality. But our responsibilities don’t stop there. We also make sure that working conditions meet every safety, legal and quality requirement in our suppliers’ factories and for our colleagues working in our office, distribution centre and stores.

Some of our larger stores stock thousands and thousands of own label and branded goods. This means our Technical Law and Trading team has to be broad both in range of product knowledge and skills.

As well as having the right qualifications, skills and experience, you’ll need excellent people skills, a can-do attitude and the ability to build strong relationships.

Many of our roles include an advisory element or working with several stakeholders, so it’s vital that you can manage a complex situation, gather key facts quickly, remain calm under pressure and be decisive. We also need you to act with integrity and be able to give strong reasoning for any course of action that you suggest. For specialist roles, you may need specific qualifications such as a science degree. Experience of working in a similar role is useful but not always necessary.

We’re in the unique position of working with each stage of the supply chain, remaining independent and driving action across the business and supply network. Depending on your passion and expertise, you could be working with a wide range of different areas in the business.
