The K-Group as a workplace

Kesko's working community is developing and international. Common values, principles and operating practices provide the basis for our work everywhere.

A pioneer in the trading sector

Kesko is a trading sector company that renews itself and wants to be a pioneer also in the future. Kesko and K-retailers form the K-Group. The core of the K-Group is formed by stores run by independent retailer entrepreneurs.
We share an enthusiasm for the trading sector and a retailer attitude that shows as a spirit of getting things done and taking responsibility and as a possibility to have a say in how things are done. We do not hesitate to take action, whether it is serving a customer or helping a colleague.

Serving our customers

As consumer behaviour and the needs of our customers change, we will change as well. Our objective is to exceed our customers' expectations also in the future – both online and in brick-and-mortar stores. Being successful in our jobs requires genuine interest in the trading sector.

Grow with us in various retail jobs

We reward active people and development possibilities are offered whenever available. We want to invest in the development of our employees, because the K-Group is renewed together with its skilled people. What kind of development are you looking for? Maybe a step forward, a change of direction or a sideward jump toward new challenges?

In a big group, there are many ways to develop: you can change jobs between companies or divisions, and there are many kinds of career paths that can lead to supervisory positions, retailer entrepreneurship or management positions. You can expand and deepen your competence with the courses in K-instituutti.

A Finnish company in the international market

The K-Group also offers possibilities to work internationally. There is a total of about 45,000 people in the K-Group, and we work in nine countries: Finland, Sweden, Norway, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Russia and Belarus. We are a truly international company; 54% of our staff works in Finland, 46% in other countries.

Responsibility programme supporting our operations

In Kesko and K-stores, responsibility is part of everyday work which helps our customers make good choices. We want to make customers' lives easier, providing them with high-quality products and services that promote wellbeing and guiding them on the proper use of products. In our responsibility work, we focus on the wellbeing of people and the environment. The K Code of Conduct principles guide everything we do.
