Games WorkshopGames Workshop
Games Workshop is the largest and the most successful tabletop fantasy wargames company in the world. We are a vertically integrated business, retaining control over every aspect of design, manufacture and distribution of our models and rulebooks. Products are sold through our own chain of over 400 Hobby Centres and more than 4,000 other toy and hobby shops around the world. These outlets are complemented by our mail order and online sales businesses.
We are a business with a strong internal culture. The culture of a business is, in effect, its personality. It’s a mix of what we are trying to do and how we go about it. A mix of our business models and the values we embrace as we go about achieving it.
We believe that attitudes are more important than skills; for many roles we will happily help you learn the skills you need if you bring a great attitude to your work. Some roles require professional qualifications or proven talent, even then your attitude will be more important than your qualifications and we will often accept a less qualified person if we are impressed.
The key to our culture is that we always put the business first. We expect all staff to spend their time at work helping to improve Games Workshop both commercially and socially. We also expect you continually to work on improving yourself.
Strong cultures require some getting used to. Some people, perfectly naturally, will find ours too much for them, or not to their taste. We accept and acknowledge this fact. This is why we are so concerned to get a good fit between Games Workshop’s personality and those of all the staff. People who don’t fit or who ‘play’at fitting, will be unhappy. We are pretty tolerant and you may be able to get away with it for a while, but you will still be unhappy.
People who share the values of our culture will find they fit in very well and can have long and prosperous careers with us.
