We’re sending a huge congratulations to Rachael, one of our distribution graduates who won Graduate of the Year last night at the Rising Star Awards 2018.
“I feel extremely honoured to have won the Graduate of the Year Award and I am incredibly grateful to have such recognition for the work I have done. I’d like to thank all of the Tesco Distribution team for their continued support throughout my time on the Graduate Programme and for giving me a world of opportunities. I am very proud to be part of this fantastic team and of the Tesco community.”
Using multiple colleague inputs and her own diagnostics, she worked alongside our Group Procurement, Responsible Sourcing and Ethics teams to build a plan to implement change. As a result of this successful project, a new career pathway will be launched for our agency colleagues, guiding principles to our Distribution Centres, and a Level 3 Apprenticeship is being built for our Agency Supervisors.
Well done Rachael!
We would like to wish our very own Rachael good luck after being nominated for the 2018 Rising Stars Retail Awards Graduate of the Year. Rachael shares her experience with us below:
“I joined the Tesco Distribution graduate scheme in 2016, my first placement was in Livingston Distribution Centre.
Nine months later I was asked to lead a project within Distribution, making sure our colleagues felt secure both contractually and culturally. Since the project I have returned to a Lead Team role as a Shift Manager within one of our Distribution Centres.
I have thoroughly enjoyed every part of my time on the Graduate Programme. I have been exposed to a wide range of opportunities outside of my programme.
Leading the project within Distribution has by far been my most proud achievement. Being able to implement change across our network of 28 Distribution and Fulfilment Centre’s in order to help positively impact the lives of thousands of colleagues. I can’t imagine getting opportunities of this scale and scope in any other company and feel incredibly proud to work for Tesco.”
