Tesco, Britain’s biggest supermarket group, said today it was changing the way it manages its larger stores, impacting around 1,750 workers.
Tesco said a new structure will see it introduce about 1,800 “shift leader” roles in its larger Superstores and Extra stores and also realign its store manager roles. At the same time, it will reduce the number of “lead” and “team managers” in its large stores.
Tesco said the 1,750 workers affected will have the option of moving to shift leader vacancies or taking redundancy. It said localized changes across the UK business will impact a further 350 jobs.
