Tesco to create 700 jobs at new dotcom store

Supermarket giant Tesco is to create 700 jobs at its new dotcom store at Crawley in Sussex.

The Crawley facility follows the high-tech model launched in Enfield last year and features the latest technology and systems to support Tesco’s home grocery delivery business.

Tesco’s Barney Burgess, chief operating officer for grocery home shopping, said: "Dotcom stores are an increasingly important part of our service for customers.

"More and more customers are using their computers and smart phones to shop. This state of the art facility will increase our capacity in the area, enabling us to offer an excellent and convenient service to our customers."

Tesco expects the majority of the 700 jobs to be taken by local people. The range of roles will include personal shoppers, team managers, drivers and support personnel.

Tesco’s first television advertising campaign for 2013, which goes live today, features the dotcom grocery online service as a mother daydreams about who is picking her order.  

Customer communications director, Paul Morris, said: "We set out to show that each shop for online customers is made with care. Tesco personal shoppers – warriors or not – seek out the freshest produce and longest code life dates just like our customers would do."

Hayley Meenan-Wilkin, Head of Web Operations for will be taking part in a Panel Discussion And Interactive Q & A Session: Examining How The Multichannel World is Changing Retailing - How Far Have We Travelled and What Will the Omnichannel World of the Future Look 5 Years From Now? at the Retail Bulletin's 4th Multichannel Retailing Summit 6th February 2013.
This important session looks at the critical issue of the future of the multichannel mix and how it connects with shoppers at different points of purchase. Register now to hear from Haley and our full programme of top quality speakers.
