Available Between

Calling all YEAR 10 Students….

Are you a problem solver?

Finance is at the heart of Tesco and our Finance team has one of the widest viewpoints in the business – touching every part of the company. Finance at Tesco is about solving real-world business problems and to improve all areas of our organisation. Whether that be by setting strategy, guiding product selection, or reviewing new business opportunities, it’s much more than just numbers!

We want to offer you the opportunity to learn more about what we do, careers in finance, and to develop your future employability. We welcome any Year 10 student and no prior experience is required to take part.

The work experience programme will be run online and will involve the completion of a Finance themed challenge, developing skills in the process. At the end of the work experience, you will present your completed challenge back. In addition to this, you will hear from a range of different finance teams across the business and how they each help contribute to serving our shoppers a little better every day. You will also see first-hand what it’s like to work in the Finance department of a FTSE100 listed company.

We will help you to complete your challenge and also improve your future employability skills with live workshops on: Presentation techniques, CV writing, Interview advice, and Finance Careers.
