Jack Cohen, who used to sell groceries in the markets of London from 1919, was the founder of Tesco Company. Tesco’s brand appearance happened in 1924. The name ‘TESCO’ formed when Jock Cohen purchased a large shipment of tea from T.E. Stockwell and he labeled the company name using the first three letters of the supplier’s name and the first two letters of his surname (Fisk, 2016). Currently, Tesco is known as a multinational chain of grocery and general merchandise.

Many organizations open application systems and allow people to apply for a particular job position by collecting their CVs from their stores as well. Another option for applying for a job is through JobCentre Plus.
