Customers will be able to buy a range of third-party products on Tesco.com as the supermarket relaunches its marketplace, which initially operated between 2012 and 2018.
As reported in The Grocer, Tesco is now looking for a business development manager – Marketplace, to work out of Tesco in Welwyn Garden City. The job offer reveals more details of the Tesco Marketplace, with the role described as: “Marketplace is a key pillar of our strategy to be ‘Easily the Most Convenient’ grocer, offering customers the opportunity to shop a broad range of 3rd party products, alongside their core grocery basket, seamlessly on Tesco.com.
“To support with building Marketplace, we are in need of a business development manager who will help us translate our strategy into action by recruiting and managing a set of sellers to deliver a compelling range proposition for customers and achieve our GMV target,” the Tesco Careers posting noted.
The job role includes recruiting a compelling set of sellers to sell on the Tesco Marketplace, and prioritising sellers using a data driven approach that aligns with Tesco’s strategy on range offer.
As well as working with sellers on merchandising and promotional strategies, the successful Tesco Marketplace business development manager will also “identify product areas for future Marketplace growth based on understanding of commercial performance and customer opportunity”.
