Head Office

Our sales and operational teams are at the forefront of our trading operations providing the exceptional levels of service required to grow our business. These roles are primarily responsible for ensuring our business provides exceptional customer service and delivers significant profitable growth by developing and achieving its ambitious sales targets.

Typical operational roles include Local Network Managers, Area Trading Managers, Regional Trading Directors and Operations Managers. And on the Sales side, they include Sales Managers, Key Account Managers, Business Development Managers and Area/Regional Sales Managers.

Technical skills and experience requirements vary, of course. But across the board, we look for people with plenty of commercial awareness and a head full of bright ideas.

If you enjoy learning through practical experience, in a customer focused environment, where no two days are the same, Wolseley UK could be the place for you. You need to have a strong work ethic, enjoy working as part of a team and, for management roles, the ability to lead and build a team through regular communication and great interpersonal skills.

In every area of the business, we're focused on the customer and determined to provide prompt and efficient service. We want employees who will take responsibility for themselves and their team and aren't afraid to take ownership of a project or initiative and to see it through to a successful conclusion. And of course, we expect all employees to live and breathe our RESPECT values

Due to the wide range of opportunities on offer, specific technical skills and experience will vary depending on the specific role. However, in general, we are always looking for people who have a passion for delivering excellent customer service, and thrive on interaction with customers, both face-to-face and over the phone.

While experience is not always essential for our branch roles, you should demonstrate a good level of basic numeracy and literacy to perform basic arithmetic and accurately check and compare measurements and read/check alphanumeric codes.

Product knowledge is desirable, but we offer full training in this area. However, what is really important to us is that you are a confident communicator with the desire to deliver the highest level of service to our customers.

We know that having the right staff in the right place and at the right time will enable us to operate efficiently and improve the service we offer to our customers. To increase our workforce flexibility and ensure we grow and develop our employees, we multi-skill people, allowing them to perform in a number of different roles. We also offer a range of flexible working patterns, including part-time contracts and staggered start and finish times.
