Tesco to make big changes to stores, affecting 2,100 jobs
The Guardian says Tesco has announced a shake-up of its shop management in large UK stores along with the closure of its remaining meat, fish and hot deli counters, affecting 2,100 jobs.
The UK’s biggest grocer said it had started rolling out a new management structure in 350 of its smaller superstores over the past two years and was extending this structure across its larger superstores and Extra stores.
Tesco will cut the number of lead and team managers in large UK stores by 1,750, and introduce 1,800 new lower-paid “shift leader” roles, responsible for leading on the day-to-day operational duties on the shop floor.
Those affected will have the option of moving into the lower-paid shift leader vacancies with financial support or taking redundancy.
