Hi everyone, not been on here for a while so sorry if this has been discussed in a lot of detail already! I lost my food stock manager role last year and have looked after different roles since but have never been appointed into a new role as no vacancies in store. Anyone in the same boat or heard anything lately?

Loads of us. Plus more and more roles, like I said 5 in our store with no roles. Farce.

Our 2 displaced seniors have found new roles - just leaves me (stock) and the services manager to go.
Neither of us are willing to take an alternative position, and just want to go, but not without some sort of recompense for our many years of loyal service.
Vague hope the new guy will sort this farce out.
ever hoping (or just clutching at straws ....)

Some communication will come down as there are people still in the job. If a role has been removed in store it will just go to remaining manager.
For example, a store that has a PFS, services and checkout manager will have the communication go to named managers. Where the roles have all been combined they will go to the new checkouts and services manager once roles are clicked on comms. A while back they removed two newsletters and combined them all into one. They was a cash office, CSD and checkout newsletter but it's all now just front end but it goes to the individual manager or combined, depending on store set up.

Interesting that JS are offering redundancy to their displaced colleagues, whereas T aren't.
Just saying ..........

By the power of the work and pay search facility within the directory there are still 81 stock team mangers in the company. Not sure if this all or just those on work and pay but nonetheless, it more than I expected. I wonder how many are on the list that are staying in the role, as throughout my consultations I was told that due the role staying in some stores, it is not a redundancy situation. Burying the head in the sand has worked for Tesco in my case as, I leave next week to go into another career.

Administrator Comment Good luck in your future career.

Is that opposed to Stock & Admin Manager??

That’s way more that I would have thought to be honest, I know there are a good few that are adamant about not taking another role however that number may suggest an admin error with coding rather than actual FS Managers still in situ

Good luck, and well done for moving on.

Perhaps when Tesco have the £10BN in the Bank from the Asia Operation sale, they will be able to pay redundancy?

81 doesn’t surprise me at all, in fact I thought there would be a few more with a bit of gumption.

I am on work and pay as stock manager, but am not doing that job - all staff have been transferred to stock / admin manager. Hurrah! no accountable staff

well i have now officially got no job. on paper still stock manager, but now only doing duty shifts - no other accountability or responsibility, but still mildly optimistic 'they' will do something soon. until then being paid £32k for doing not alot. getting rather boring now. surely someone can sort this - tried everyone at the top with no response ah well.

Is £32k the most a Team Manager can earn or can it go higher? In any case I'd milk it for as long as you can, if you're being paid that much to do not a lot, that's on the senior team, not you.

Be careful, by doing another job and if you do it long enough it could be looked at as assumption of new responsibilities on your part. As far as I’m aware the union stated that you are to remain in the role until an acceptable permanent alternative gets agreed.

Role packs exist containing the RACIs of Food Stock Managers, if the role ceases to exist, then the redundancy process and restructuring has to be carried out in order to formally relinquish the role, if as is happening here Tesco has got rid of the role but hasn't carried out the transitionary, consulting and redundancy process, the role legally still exists (as current employees have not been made redundant from the role) and therefore the assumption of new responsibilities can't be made while the job title is still held.

I am interested how you have arrived at the situation of not having a role. Who's choice was this?
I am a food stock manager, still in the role, still being measured in the role, and still very much continuing as per normal ( if thats what we can call it).

My store manager has not hinted at any changes, and she still expects the same output as before the changed happened.
I am clear that any potential changes will be kept from me, so I understand its business as usual.
However to have a manager with no job sounds worrying to me, and I hope your decision has not been influenced by another party, who had told you this would be the best course of action to take, only for it to backfire on you.

But the role that used to be done by the stock manager is now the job of the stock  admin manager. My manager and I agreed that it was only right this person should have full accountability, so I agreed to 'support' twilights. I am now not needed to do this, so am just doing duties. I am confident it will not backfire - only time will tell ....
