Tesco will create 20,000 new jobs in the UK over the next two years through a significant investment in customer service, refreshing existing stores and opening new ones.
Starting immediately, the retailer will invest significantly in additional staff hours and training to boost the customer experience - including on fresh produce, fresh meat, bakery and counter services.
In strengthening its customer service team by 20,000 new recruits, Tesco expects to focus on giving opportunities to young people currently unemployed.
Tesco will also give young people the opportunity to carry on learning by expanding its apprenticeship programme to provide 10,000 apprenticeships.
UK CEO, Richard Brasher, said: "At the core of this investment is our determination to deliver the best shopping experience for our customers, bar none."
