Tesco To Cut 9,000 Jobs
February 16th, 2015

Tesco is preparing to lose 9,000 staff members in a plan that looks set to get rid of a layer of management from their larger stores, as well as reducing the numbers in its head offices and closing stores at various locations around the country.

The new chief executive for the troubled company, Dave Lewis, looks set to remove the team leader role from the larger stores, which could impact about 3,000 staff members.

These are the latest cuts being made by the company, who also announced the closure of 43 stores last month, which will result in 2,000 to 3,000 jobs being cut. There are also plans to close their Cheshunt headquarters and restructuring to take place at its Welwyn Garden City offices, with the results of these being another 3,000 jobs lost. As of last week, Tesco were offering voluntary redundancy to their head office staff.

Tesco stores get a new look

September 10th, 2013


Tesco has created what is being known as the “Supermarket of the future”. The first supermarket/department store crossover opened in Watford in 2013. In store, you can enjoy a good quality coffee at Harris & Hoole or grab a snack at Giraffe. Other areas of the store have had a makeover too, with the alcohol section featuring a TV displaying cocktail recipes. Other stores are expected to follow Watford’s lead in 2014.

Tesco also announced plans to add a beauty salon to some superstores, where you can enjoy a manicure before the weekly shop, although it is not clear when these will be developed.
