Changes to Tesco overnight shifts put more than 1,400 jobs at risk

Tesco trolleys

Tesco has announced changes to overnight roles in some convenience and supermarket stores that will put more than 1,400 roles at risk.

The announcement came after the grocery giant announced it would be axing its discount Jack’s fascia and closing meat, fish and poultry counters in hundreds of stores, affecting a further 130 jobs yesterday. 

Combined, the two announcements put 1,600 roles across Tesco at risk of redundancy, but the grocer said there were currently “around 3,000” vacancies across the business. 

Tesco said it would be moving overnight stock replenishment to the daytime in 36 of its large stores and in 49 convenience stores, following a successful trial of the switch.
