Tesco bicster

Tesco is planning a raft of changes to stores, including closing its remaining counter services and reducing store manager numbers.

Tesco has announced plans to cut the number of team and lead managers in its superstores, impacting 1,750 workers. 

The retailer plans to instead introduce around 1,800 shift-leader roles, responsible for leading the day-to-day operational duties on the shop floor, and realigning manager roles to focus on overall store performance, making the job more equal across its estate.
