As a Fulfilment Operations Manager in our UFC you will be accountable for the culture and success of the operation, putting colleagues and customers at the heart of all decisions and balancing ownership of change plans, cost efficiencies, legal compliance and iconic service.

You will be responsible for
  • Becoming a manager in a Tesco store gives you a driving role in Serving Britain’s Shoppers a Little Better Every day.
  • As a Lead Manager you will have your own management team to guide and will be the most senior manager in the UFC, reporting to the store manager, responsible for ensuring the best possible service for our colleagues and customers.
  • Holding Managers accountable for the ‘what’ and 'how’ of their objectives
  • It’s a chance to put your management skills, experience and instincts to the test; chasing opportunities, finding better ways of working and getting things just right for our customers.
  • Leading a safety culture and compliance to the operating model
  • You’ll be a role model, helping colleagues to know and love our products and services, involving everyone in community projects and proving just how much we can achieve together.  You’ll get to grow your own team – by spotting talent and giving them the feedback and support they need to be their best.
  • We’ll look to you to maximise the throughput of the automation, whilst making sure everything is safe and compliant, and everyone’s in the right place at the right time.
  • Leading the overall finance and Key Performance Indicators for my teams
  • This role is what management should be: out of the office and leading from the front – on the store floor with your colleagues and customers.
You will need
  • Strong business acumen with the ability to drill into data and understand how the operation works
  • A driven and keen attitude to learn new skills as well as thriving whilst working in a supportive team
  • The ability to adapt to working in a fast-paced ever-evolving environment
  • Great communication skills with colleagues, and the ability to share and encourage new ideas and best practice
  • Be warm and welcoming, taking time to recognise and listen to others
  • A track record of building a strong team spirit and a network of relationships that stretches beyond the UFC
  • A keen eye for the detail of the operation with the capability to step back and see the bigger picture. 

Our best and most inspiring leaders have a natural ability to:

  • Look ahead and seize opportunities
  • Acting quickly to do what’s right for colleagues and customers
  • Thriving on change and leading people through it together
  • Knowing how to be at your best – and exceeding expectations

Should you be successful in your application, your offer will be subject to and conditional upon you providing your bank account details before your agreed start date.
