Learning and Development

We want every single person here to be all they can be. We also want to be a place where everyone, whatever their role, can develop a career that keeps them inspired.

This is why we take learning and development so seriously. We have a lot of different development programmes in place, and encourage people to gain new skills and take on new challenges. It’s an approach that’s seen countless colleagues go from strength to strength. It could do the same for you.

Supporting your talent

Whatever stage of your career you’re at, we can help you take the next step. You’ll be able to move through different roles, create your own learning opportunities, or follow a formal learning and development programme. Whichever way you choose, we’ll support you in driving your development forward.

Making a great start

No matter whether you join our store or SSO team, you’ll enjoy a structured and involving induction that will get you up to speed in no time.

Be the best you can be

You’ll never be short of learning opportunities. From bite-size factsheets and presentations to workshops and e-learning, we’ll give you the tools you need to build your knowledge. And we’re using more and more technology to make learning here even more flexible.

Never stop moving

We actively encourage promotion from within, and have a range of talent programmes designed to accelerate the development of people with potential. So you’ll find opportunities here to move forward, take on a fresh challenge in a new role, or build towards management.

Going international

Being part of the Kingfisher Group – a family of well-known brands and companies in ten different countries – means that there are plenty of opportunities available for those looking for an international flavour to their career.

We’re proud to have many, many examples of people here who have built long, varied and fulfilling careers that have taken them around our business. Who knows – you might be the next.
