A career at Tesco Malaysia means working for a company that puts people first and invests heavily in their personal career development.The nature of Tesco Malaysia means that the work we do is high profile, interesting, challenging and diverse.

Our vision is to be one global team; enabling business growth, enhancing the Tesco brand and making what matters better, together. We do this by:

  • Developing excellent people who work collaboratively to add real value
  • Enabling business growth by providing practical, commercial advice
  • Delivering operational excellence, driving efficiency locally and globally
  • Managing risk and reputation and ensuring that we use our scale for good
  • Looking to the future through identifying opportunities and providing proactive solutions to long-term challenges

There'll be lots of responsibility from day one, but we’ll always make sure you have the support you need to do a great job.

We’re looking for people who will genuinely put our customers at the heart of what we do.

In addition to an excellent academic background and relevant experience gained in house or at a top-tier firm, you’ll need to have good communication skills, a commercial and pragmatic approach and the ability to interact effectively with the business at all levels.

While technical skills are hugely important, we also put an emphasis on great leadership skills. At Tesco our 5 leadership skills are: Empathy, Collaboration, Innovation, Resilience and Responsiveness. As a legal leader you should have these in abundance, alongside a strong commercial focus. Equally important is strong, ethical leadership and integrity, to help our business operate in a compliant manner.

You’ll be providing commercial legal advice to Tesco’s diverse businesses. This includes our Fresh, Hardline, Apparel and Property teams. Essentially, you’ll be dealing with all the legal issues a multichannel retailer could face from day to day. As well as drafting and negotiating commercial contracts, you’ll strategically advise on legal matters including contract interpretation, e-commerce, IP, data protection, dispute resolution and competition law.

Our work touches almost every aspect of Tesco’s operations, so you’ll inevitably come into contact with lots of different teams within the business. And you’ll have plenty of interactions outside of Tesco, as you’ll act as our legal representative to law firms and regulatory bodies.

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.
