British retail giant Tesco has announced that it is planning to expand its operations in India and the company will hire 1,000 people across multiple profiles.
Story so far: Tesco already employs about 4,000 staff in Bengaluru across Tesco Business Services (TBS) and Tesco Technology. The CEO of TBS stated that the city is one of the important hubs for the company as it consists of a team of problem-solvers, innovators and inventors.
- The hiring will take place across multiple profiles including software engineers, data scientists, finance experts, and system engineers.
- The company’s India operations mainly contribute to Tesco’s technology capabilities, although it has a retail presence with Tata Group.
Bengaluru operations: Tesco began its operations in the city in 2004 with the Tata group to enable standardisation, build centralised capabilities and deliver a transformational experience for its global customers. Tesco Technology and TBS are spread across six key countries including Hungary, Scotland, and the Republic of Ireland.
