"I enjoy building our product range and then seeing it displayed in our stores. Creating events that serve a purpose for our customers is also a key part of my role. For example, we might create a baking event in-store that presents all the products a customer needs for their family baking occasions. I like that things change so often and that I get the opportunity to work with different companies from small local suppliers to large multinationals.”
Audrey Duffy, Buying Manager.
The right price
Tesco contributes €3.2bn to the Irish economy every year. Supporting local is very much part of the business ethos of Tesco Ireland; we source from over 480 Irish suppliers and support 13,000 Irish farm families. All of our fresh beef, pork, lamb, chicken, eggs, and milk is 100% Irish.
The right price
Buying is about planning, developing, and sourcing a great range of products that Tesco customers want to buy, at the right price. With the volumes we’re working to, being a buyer at Tesco is a big responsibility. You can give us the edge by ensuring you can build simple, sustainable, and transparent supply chains.
Each day is different and you have to be thinking one step ahead — in multichannel retailing nothing stays the same for long. Our customers’ needs are changing too and anticipating this is a real skill. If you have the ideas and the creativity and influence to make them a reality, then you can make a great buyer.
Our head office has spectacular views of Dublin Bay and the surrounding area and is just a short walk to a variety of shops, cafés, restaurants, pubs, and gym facilities. The office’s proximity to Dun Laoghaire harbour proves highly popular with colleagues who can go for a walk down the pier during their day. Outside of Dun Laoghaire, you are never far from Dublin city centre it's just a short journey away!
Our head office is based in Gresham House, in the heart of Dun Laoghaire, a well-known suburban seaside town in the south of Dublin. The location is very well connected and accessible to the greater Dublin area with its proximity to the M50 motorway and the varying forms of public transport including bus and rail that run from and through Dun Laoghaire.
