UFC isn't a role, it's a type of facility: Urban Fulfilment Centre.

As you might expect, there are a variety of roles as such a facility. These job specifications describe some such roles:

Urban Fulfilment Centre - Shift Leader - Nights
Group Maintenance Manager - UFC (Urban Fulfilment Centre)
Operative - Fulfillment nights

As OP said in post #2

You will basically be picking the online orders for customers as they come in so that they are ready to collect by the driver to deliver to the customer within the set time that they specifically asked for it to be delivered to their 🏠🏠

It's a fast pace environment the online orders centre's as you need to pick xxx items per hour and it's all tracked by the computer system and management.
It's a enjoyable job but you are under pressure to make sure you can correct the orders asap basically.


Tesco has decided to open lots of those facilities to cope with the online demand's that was created by the pandemic. Majority of those are currently in England and further expansion to continue.


Team leader and stand in supervisor with Tesco.

Good luck with the application.

thank you so much!
It's just because the Tesco that I applied to was probably lazy and only had the responsibilities of the shop floor, tills etc. with the title of a UFC operative and nothing about picking orders or anything.
So thank you

Thank you, this helps a lot.
The one I applied to only has the following so that's why I was a bit confused as the title was UFC Operative and one of my friends said it might be different so I just wanted to make sure before the interview.


You will be responsible for:
Serving customers on our checkouts ensuring they receive an easy, seamless and personalised experience
Delivering department routines
Manually condensing stock and handling products with care to maintain product quality
Championing the reduction of food waste
Following company policies and adhering to health and safety guidelines
Being knowledgeable about the products and services in my store and helping customers by giving great natural service
Replenishing products within my store
At times, you may be required to accept deliveries into the store

Hi
I wouldn't have thought that the store staff at that particular store is lazy as majority are very hardworking.

I'm surprised they didn't know nothing about ordering and picking customers orders like as the staff.


So you are now applying for a customer colleague position working on the shop floor and that's just as hard as doing online ordering.

It will definitely be interesting for you if you are successful 🙂

You'll be busy at certain times of the year especially if they are doing a special event in the store.

Hopefully you will get a interview
Just keep trying for various jobs positions until successful.

I did get the interview that's why I asked as I didn't want to be completely clueless once I get there 😂. I've been working in a bit catering assistant role for the past 2 years and wanted a bit of change.
Thank you again for the amazing tips ❤

Well done for getting the interview okay.
No worries in trying to assist.

Obviously every interview is different from one another but basically they will ask you why you want to work with Tesco, any previous retail experience but not necessary ok, bit about yourself and if you are successful with the interview you'll be asked along to an induction day for when you will be watching videos on health and safety, about the history of Tesco and how it became how they are today, also filling out your necessary paperwork ( Bank details, national insurance number, proof of work documents - take those with you) and your uniform order as well and perhaps some time on the shop floor.

Good luck with it XX 😃
