Who we are

Let’s. You’ll hear that word a lot round here. Because like Wickes, it’s bigger than the sum of its parts.

It’s more than just four letters. It’s an invite to do something together. And the combined effort is what we’re all about. It always has been.

In 1972 it was two brothers opening one store, to try to make home improvement better together. Today it’s the collective effort of more than 7000 employees, from our 250+  stores, and across our support & service networks, aiming for the exact same thing, each one contributing something different to the team.

And each one of us contributes something different to the success of the team.  You see, together we can make this business of home improvement the best it can be for everyone. Together, we can ‘do it right’.

Our Winning Behaviours

At Wickes we live by our Winning Behaviours.  These are the behaviours that we want all of our colleagues to understand and display, to support us in achieving our future plans.  Everyone has a part to play in making sure that they are embedded into everything you do at Wickes.
