This department ensures the right stock is in the right place at the right time. The team works with the entire WHSmith Group across our complete retail operation. That means our people get a great insight into how the business works, both in the UK and overseas.
Within Travel, we need to move quickly and make sure stock’s there when it’s needed. Our High Street business is more complex. With up to 60,000 different products on the shelves, there’s greater need for forward planning.
In both areas, you’ll find you have the power to shape the business. New ideas are welcomed – and you’ll see results quickly. That makes this department a rewarding place to work, where innovation and creativity really can make an impact.
To make the grade here, you need to be focused on creating value and be good at problem solving. New challenges arise all the time calling for imagination and logic. You also need to be able to see the bigger picture and work as part of a team. The goal isn’t personal achievement – it’s getting results for the business. If you’re constructive, resilient and commercially sharp, you’ll soon find your feet in this varied, fast-moving department.
