Tesco to recruit over 600 employees to meet unprecedented demand

Tesco Stores (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd is looking to recruit over 600 new colleagues for the next eight weeks, to meet the sharp increase in demand for food and household products caused by COVID-19 as well as in anticipation of the upcoming Ramadan and Hari Raya celebration.

Alvin Low, Tesco Head of People, said that they are working around the clock to help ensure families have access to the shopping items they need.

“To help us step up and meet demand, we would like to bring in over 600 new colleagues to work in our stores for at least the next eight weeks,” Low said, adding that they will be placed across all of their 60 stores nationwide, as well as our grocery home shopping delivery service, Tesco Online.

He pointed out that ever since the Movement Control Order (MCO) was implemented, there’s a huge surge of orders via Tesco Online and help is needed to serve their customers as best as they can.

Low also noted that with new colleagues coming on board, Tesco’s existing colleagues will be able to get enough rest and achieve better work-life balance during these challenging times.

“We launched the recruitment drive about two weeks ago, and we have since received some applications. We hope more will come forward to join us soon as we have streamlined our recruitment system and interview are conducted via phone so that candidates would not need to breach the MCO,” Low said.

Malaysians aged 18 to 60, with a minimum of Sijil Pendidikan Malaysia (SPM) can apply. As an equal opportunity employer, Tesco also welcomes those who are disabled to join the team. Vacancies include Store Associates, Cashiers, Tesco Online Pickers and Customer Delivery Assistants. No previous experience needed for full time, temporary and part time roles
