I started in 2000 as an Artworker. Over time, I’ve gained experience and I’m now Group Senior Design Manager. While it’s not a hands-on creative role, I love being in a creative environment and seeing a concept through to delivery, whether it’s a product or a new store design.
WHSmith is a brand you can be proud to work for, with a great supporting structure. The business wants you to succeed and be the best you can be. There’s support there if you want to progress, but be prepared to push yourself!
You need to be methodical, passionate and flexible, with a positive attitude and a good eye for detail. I’ve had lots of support from management to help me grow.
