Our stores are springing up all across the country. We’ve now opened over 470 stores. Which means that today, no-one in the UK is more than half an hour from their nearest Screwfix. Our team of digital dynamos have created an e-commerce platform that sees over 2 million (count ‘em) unique users every week. And our contact centre is abuzz with confident, bubbly customer service people working with a huge range of blue-chip and public sector clients.
Whether it’s our click and collect service, that enables our customers to pick up the tools they need at any of our stores within five minutes of ordering online, or our award-winning customer service, we’re proud to deliver more to plumbers, electricians and builders across the land.
We deliver more to our people, too. (And we’ve got the ‘Gallup Great Workplace’, and Retail Week ‘Employer of the Year’ awards to prove it). Last year, we took on 1,000 more people, from financial boffins to retail entrepreneurs, digital whizzes to marketing gurus. Join us on one of our placement schemes, and be part of the pride, the growth and the development. It’s time to make your mark.
WHY YOU SHOULD FIGHT FOR A PLACEMENT WITH US
HUGE GROWTH I In the first six months of this year, our sales were up 24% on last year, and we have opened 120 stores in the last two years alone with loads more in the pipeline. And we’re all very proud of the fact that we’ve reached a billion pounds in turnover. As you can imagine, with all this growth, there are huge opportunities for growing your career with us. Gigantic, in fact.
BIG IDEAS WELCOME I We’re a fearless bunch. We like to experiment with big, bold new ideas, from e-commerce solutions that break the mould, to novel ways to break into new markets. We welcome the creative risk-taker with open arms.
REAL ROLE. REAL RESPONSIBILITIES I All of our placements are actual, real live roles, which we’re filling with undergraduates. That means real responsibilities, big projects and a direct impact on the business. On a Screwfix placement, you’ll be right in the thick of an omni-channel retail revolution. Plus, you’ll also be earning whilst you learn, with a £17k salary and benefits package.
THE CHANCE TO BUILD A CAREER WITH US I If you make your mark in your placement, you’ll have the opportunity to work for us post-graduation. Which means the chance to build your career with one of the most innovative retailers around.
At Screwfix, we’ve got something for everyone, from digital gurus to retail entrepreneurs. Wherever you’re based, you’ll be gaining real, meaty commercial experience – and the chance to innovate, learn and explore. Plenty to get your teeth into.
