Building your career


The first thing you’ll notice at Wickes is the way everyone pulls together.

It’s a place where we’ll ask for your ideas, listen to your opinions and value the contributions you make.  Chances are you’ve never experienced anything quite like our culture.  We may come from diverse backgrounds, but we all share a determination to succeed and a passion for being the best we can be. 

If you’re looking for a long and full career at Wickes, the more you give, the further you can go. It’s up to you to make that happen, but we’ll support you with online courses, role and transitional development programmes and mentoring. 

For example, we have a range of transitional development programmes for colleagues at all levels:

Attendance is based on Line Managers’ nominations with submissions signed off by the Board.
