Available Between

Calling all YEAR 10 Students….

Are you curious about how we use Technology? Have you been looking for work experience that is challenging, creative and fun? Have you wanted to come to Tesco head office for work experience but thought you couldn’t as you don’t live near enough? The great news is that Tesco Technology is offering you the chance to join our Virtual Work Experience.

We welcome everyone to apply and you don’t need any experience to take part. Open to students in Year 10, our work experience programme will be run online with several challenges to choose from. You will be required to present your completed challenge back to our panel of judges. In addition, you will hear from our engineering, UX/UI design, product management, programme management, security and capability teams and see first-hand what it’s like to work in a technology department.

We will help you to complete your challenge and also improve your employability skills with live workshops on: Presentation Skills, CV & Interview Skills and Technology Careers.

So why not take a look inside the world of Tesco Technology and take on our “Use Technology to Improve the Customer Experience” challenge!
