Our 1,700 stores across the UK and internationally are supported by our Head Office teams to deliver a great customer experience and grow our business by: constantly innovating, expanding globally, improving our profitability and delivering sustainable returns. Our High Street business is run from our Head Office in Swindon, and our Travel business from our Head Office in the centre of London. From Buying to Marketing, Finance to Central Operations, we always need top talent across all our departments.
Our Swindon Head Office is where our High Street Head Office and WHSmith.co.uk Online teams are based. The office has ample free parking, an on-site canteen with Starbucks and good transport connections.
Our teams support our 540 stores on UK high streets with the end-to-end retail process, from sourcing products through to creating plans for store layouts and product displays and ensuring we can deliver on our goal – to be Britain’s most popular high street stationer, bookseller and newsagent. As a growing multichannel retailer, we also have a focus on our online offer which complements our High Street stores.
We want our organisation to be a place where people love to work; where each and every member of the WHSmith team can be themselves and develop the skills to flourish; where they feel safe and able to lead healthy lives; and where they have the opportunity to progress on their journey with us. We know how important work-life balance is to our colleagues, and our colleagues can benefit from a range of flexible and agile working arrangements as well as a number of employee benefits, including the option to buy extra holiday through our fantastic Holiday Trading Scheme.
As the hub of the high street, we’re committed to supporting every generation of customers to come so it’s an exciting time to join the business!
