Job Description

Wickes is more than just the nation’s favourite DIY store. We’re part of the Travis Perkins Group, one of the UK’s top employers and that’s why 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. All our colleagues come from different backgrounds, but what we all have in common is a determination to succeed and a passion for being the best we can be.  If that sounds like you, we’ll make you feel right at home.


The Role


As part of our ongoing journey in transforming our store estate we are looking for an experienced Proposition Development Manager to lead the development and delivery of transformation projects to improve the Wickes customer proposition for a 12 month fixed term contract as a maternity cover.


These transformation projects are expected to deliver significant growth for Wickes and form part of the Wickes 5 Year Plan.  These projects need to ensure all elements of the proposition & customer journey including range, value, service, in-store environment and online propositions are improved to meet the Wickes strategy of being customers’ first choice for full room transformation projects. 

The person


The successful applicant will be responsible for leading the strategic development of our physical and digital environment, initiating, project managing and delivering pilot initiatives for a number of digital innovations to enhance our customer and colleague experiences within the showroom.  You will be a key player in our exciting plans within the DIFM service proposition beyond Kitchens and Bathrooms and will be responsible for driving a large cross-functional project team to land this exciting initiative.


You will have a proven track record of leading large scale projects, dealing with multiple senior stakeholders and working collaboratively to bring individual functions and initiatives together into a financially viable customer offer.


Ideally, you will have experience within customer proposition planning and development along with a strong background in strategic planning and project delivery (it would also be great if you have some exposure to Marketing Communications).  


A full job description is available 


Our strong family values and 'cornerstones' lie at the heart of the success of our journey - from family business to forward thinking business. If matching your ambition to our culture is an exciting prospect, there's never been a better time to join us.

And if like us, you put customers at heart of everything you do, you can expect to be rewarded with a full package of perks on top of a salary that grows with you as you grow in our business.
