Tesco scrapping hot deli counters as thousands of jobs put at risk
The Independent says Tesco has announced a wide-ranging overhaul of its stores which will impact around 2,100 jobs.
The UK’s largest supermarket chain said it will extend changes to store management roles, shut remaining counters and hot delis and shut a number of in-store pharmacies as part of the shake-up.
Tesco said it is reducing the number of lead and team managers in large shops as part of the changes to its management structure, which will impact around 1,750 workers.
The grocer said the move will also introduce around 1,800 new shift leader roles in stores, leading operational duties on the shop floor.
It also confirmed it will close its remaining counters and hot delis at stores from February 26, having previously removed counters from the majority of shops.
