Key Facts:

  • 6,800 stores across Europe and Asia
  • Serving 80 million customers a week

The challenge

Using different systems to manage, process, and track applicants was a constant challenge for the recruitment team. Tesco needed a simpler, self-service system for candidates which would make it easy to apply for roles and stay informed.

Recruiters needed to report on the entire hiring process and identify areas for improvement, across a diverse range of roles and business units.

Supporting early careers and graduate recruitment as well as implementing guaranteed interviews for disabled candidates were key requirements.

Our solution

Mobile optimisation
