Teams you could work with

Food is the very heart of our business.
It’s where we first began and it’s what continues to matter most to our customers around the world today.
Our Fresh teams live and breathe food. They cover everything from global sourcing to local market insight.
Our shared passion for the products we sell is what keeps everyone in our supply chains focused on offering fantastic quality, innovation and value for money – wherever and whenever our customers choose to shop.

• A genuine belief in making a difference for our customers
• Negotiation skills to get the best quality products at the best rates
• Innovative and creative thinking

As a buyer, you call the shots on the types of products and the range we carry in store.
The role includes understanding Malaysian palates, anticipating customers’ wants and choosing products they will want to buy. With the volumes we deal in, our buyers have big responsibilities of choosing right suppliers, negotiating the best value and quality, and helping our shoppers to get what they want.


Buyers need to manage and coordinate a wide pool of suppliers, vendor and external partners in order to give customers the choice, value and quality they expect from Tesco. 

You will also be working closely with:
• Store colleagues
• Teams of buyers
• Product developers
• Colleagues in marketing, supply chain and stores

We want you to always feel at ease in your new working environment. That’s why we’re doing everything we can to help you enjoy the work you do.

  • You’ll join a welcoming team that works on building strong, friendly relationships with customers and local communities.
  • All year round, you’ll receive benefits and rewards, including additional special offers on our products. 
  • You’ll also get plenty of training and development opportunities, so you get as much support, feedback and chances to further your career as you need.
