I joined Wolseley because it was the largest and best merchant to work for.

Working in supply chain

We have a national distribution centre at Royal Leamington Spa in Warwickshire, along with four regional centres at Worcester in Worcestershire, Melmerby in West Yorkshire, Marston Gate in Bedfordshire and Measham in Derbyshire. With 1.5m square feet of warehouse space, they dispatch more than £1.6bn of stock each year. That’s the equivalent of around 7,000 orders every day to over 6,000 UK locations.

To achieve this takes a fleet of more than 800 vehicles that clocked up a combined total of 27 million miles in 2017. That’s 1,100 times round the world, or 55 return trips to the moon. Around 850 people work across this network, from drivers and warehouse operatives to helpdesk team leaders and operations managers. So there are plenty of opportunities for you to play a big role in our continuing success.

Wolseley is a respected brand and an industry leader, which is what attracted me to them. They have a strong set of values and are focused on diversity, driving equal opportunities and health and safety, which makes you proud to work for them.

I’m new to the industry and feel I’ve been really well supported since joining. There’s a lot of engagement across teams, sharing experience and knowledge and people’s opinions are listened to and valued. You feel like you can really add value and make a difference.

My career story

John Broome, Distribution Centre General Manager.

The reason I joined Wolseley was because it was a large multi-national company that ran its own transport. I also knew that there was a large number of long servers here, which spoke for itself. And it’s only a short commute from where I live, which helped!

What makes working here so enjoyable is that the company empowers its people to work to their full potential. That’s part of its core values and it’s what keeps me here - I enjoy seeing people develop and the operation becoming stronger as a result.
