It’s somewhere you can be you

We want WHSmith to be a place where people really love to work. Not to mention somewhere we can all feel safe, and live healthy lives. So, we’re working hard to be an inclusive employer with just the right kind of support network, and a diverse workforce where everyone feels like they belong.

It’s somewhere you can learn and grow

Here, you’ll have the support of a great team behind you. We’re big on learning and development, so no matter which part of our business you join, or at what level, we offer the kind of training that can help you grow as fast as we are. Which is pretty quick!

It’s somewhere that really listens

We’re proud of our culture of innovation, and it’s why we’re able to deliver outstanding results year in year out. But we’re even more proud of what it means to our people. So if you’ve got a new idea to bring to the table that will make us better, we’re here to listen.

It’s somewhere that respects everyone

Our customers want to do the right thing, too. In fact, they want to know that the products they buy from us are produced by workers who are treated well, without harming the environment. That’s why we only work with suppliers who value dignity and respect. And who are just as committed as we are to the wellbeing of everyone in our supply chain.
