I joined in 2014 as a weekend Sales Assistant, but I was always eager to take a bigger role.

I started running weekend shifts and became a part-time Team Leader. I then became full-time and went on the Retail Academy Team Leader Development Programme to strengthen my skills.

The course has impacted how I work daily, especially in relation to my people and planning skills. It also introduced me to peers in the business and we’re still in contact. More recently I have become Deputy Manager at Manchester Airport.

I am incredibly excited by this role and the prospect of furthering myself and my career. In less than two years I feel that I have come so far. With willingness and dedication, WHSmith can bring you great opportunities.
