Our recruitment process
So, you’d like to join our team?
We want to make sure you’re the right fit, so below we have detailed some hints and tips to help you along the way. Here are some of the details of our recruitment process and the kind of things you can expect.
All of our applications come to us via our Latest jobs. Here you will find details of all of our current vacancies.
To apply for a vacancy, we would firstly ask you to create a profile with Tesco Underwriting. Here you will find the option of creating a profile using one of your other online accounts. You can choose from Linked In, Facebook or a Google+ profile or you can set one up from scratch if you’d prefer.
Once you’ve created this profile you can save it and log into it at any time in the future.
Now you’re logged in, you can begin your application!
The application process should take about 5 – 10 minutes and we’ll ask you to upload a current CV, and an optional covering letter.
You’ll also find an equal opportunities form –filling this in is optional, but we’d encourage you to share your details as being an being an equal opportunities employer is really important to us.
Once we’ve received your application, one of our recruitment team will review your CV, your skills and experience.
We will always contact you to let you know the outcome of your application.
If we’d like to progress you’re application, the next steps will depend on the type of role you’ve applied for. We might schedule in a short telephone interview, organise a face to face interview or we might even invite you to attend an assessment centre.
If we offer you the role we need to carry out some ‘pre employment checks’. These include obtaining employment references, a Disclosure and Barring Service check (formally known as a Criminal Record Bureau check), and a financial record check.
We’ll also need to ensure that you’re eligible to work in the UK. We do these for everyone that joins our team in order to meet our regulatory responsibilities as well as a duty of care to our customers.
