Business Diversity

We want people from diverse backgrounds at every level of our business, so we're launching our Business Diversity internship to ensure we attract talent to our business that we can nurture and grow. This paid, 10-week programme over the summer will give you real-life experience in a key area of our business, building valuable skills to support your future career. You'll be supporting a key project, with the potential to positively affect the lives of millions of customers, as well as colleagues and communities!

You could be in the Distribution Support Office, helping us to meet our climate change targets by supporting the roll-out of electric delivery vans. Or maybe you'll join the Fresh Food team, working with suppliers to add new plant-based products to our range, we can offer customers affordable, plant-based alternatives. From Marketing to Procurement, HR to Supply Chain, whichever team you join, we'll make sure you maximise your opportunity to learn and develop.

A successful internship with us can guarantee your place on our Business graduate programme when you graduate - before you've even started your final year of study!

Who we are looking for

We're looking for self-motivated and entrepreneurially-spirited undergraduates, who can work collaboratively to deliver a project in our business. You don't need previous work experience to apply. You need to be in your penultimate year of study and from one or more of the following backgrounds:
• Ethnic minority
• Socially or economically disadvantaged
• Consider yourself to have a disability
• Identify as LGBTQ+

Sounds like the programme for you? to read about our Application process and let us know if you need support.

Working at our Welwyn Garden City campus

Our leafy, green campus is just 10 minutes' walk from the centre of Welwyn Garden City with its many shops, restaurants, pubs and sports facilities. Close to the A1, and with frequent trains running to Finsbury Park in just 20 minutes (free shuttle buses take you between the station and office), the campus is well connected to the surrounding area.

On campus you'll find subsidised restaurants and coffee shops, as well as a Tesco Express to pick up your lunch or last-minute essentials. You can join the on-site Nuffield Health gym, which has state-of-the-art fitness equipment, two studios for group classes, plus treatment rooms (membership costs £23.50 per month).

Your experience with us


We'll kick off your internship with a two-day induction, where you'll learn more about our business and your programme. It's a great opportunity for you to meet your fellow interns. We'll then introduce you to your team, so you can get to know more about your role and the area you'll be working in.

Store experience

You'll spend two days out of your ten weeks working in one of our stores. The time you spend there will help you to learn how our stores operate, how they link to your role or project and help you to understand our customers, so you can serve them a little better every day.

Programme structure

You'll gain real-life experience by completing a project, working collaboratively with other colleagues. Although you'll be based in one area for the duration of your internship, you'll get an insight into the breadth of opportunities at Tesco.

Where next?

Throughout your internship, you'll be encouraged to develop skills and gain experience that will support you in your future career. You'll also receive valuable feedback on how you've performed during your 10 weeks to help understand your strengths and areas to develop further.
