Matthew has just finished his graduate programme and has been promoted to Campaign Manager.
"The Marketing Graduate programme enabled me to experience different teams including local marketing, global insights and campaign marketing.
I have to say the whole recruitment process was great, communication was open and honest and I had conversations throughout providing me with further guidance and advice at each stage.
From day one and throughout the programme I had responsibility and autonomy for the projects I managed. I’m most proud of the ‘Food Love Stories’ campaign that I managed from start to finish.
The culture here is inclusive, everyone is welcome and there is a good balance between working hard and socialising.
I’ve come to realise you should never limit yourself to just one path or career direction, there are always opportunities to try something new and gain experience in a company like ours."

Max talks to us about his time on our Technology Graduate Programme.
"Having completed my degree in computer science I was looking for a graduate programme in an innovative and inspiring tech environment where I had future opportunities and a chance to make a difference. People were surprised when I said I found that at Tesco.
It certainly isn’t a stuffy corporate business but a place you can bring yourself to work and dress casually too. My team really inspire me and the work is challenging, the code we write needs to be able to handle the sheer volume of customers. Millions of people could be interacting with the technology we develop which is critical to the business, meaning you have to be tenacious and resilient.
I have recently been promoted to Software Development Engineer having completed my two year graduate programme. I really do have the opportunity to really make a big difference.

We’re working hard to support communities across the UK. Our Bristol Store Director, Lewis Little, has written about how we’re supporting colleagues, suppliers and community groups in the South West - click below to read his blog:
Last week we launched our internal Level 2 Retail Apprenticeship open days in stores, which will help us talk to our colleagues about this great opportunity to gain new experiences and to develop themselves.
We always support colleagues, of all ages, with opportunities to get on, continue their education and build their skills for the future. Our apprenticeship gives them a chance to reach their potential, personally and professionally, which also helps us serve Britain's customers a little better every day.
We were in a number of stores last week with our new learning provider Lifetime Training and we'll be travelling around with them over the next few weeks to more stores to spread the word.
