I feel like I’m making a real difference to the team and the business.
Working in sales
Our trading operations are at the heart of our business, giving our customers the fantastic levels of service that keep them coming back time and again. Join one of our sales or operational teams and you’ll not only be the face of our business to a variety of customers. You’ll also be contributing to our profitable growth and success.
Naturally, for some of our roles, you’ll need specific technical skills and experience. But most important of all, you’ll be great with customers, commercially aware, used to working to ambitious sales targets and full of great ideas to keep customers happy.
My career story
Wendy Varley, Showroom Manager. Doncaster.
I love my job. I just feel happy here. The people I work with are great – we’re like a family. Everybody mucks in together and we help each other out all the time. It’s like we’re all trained in every job. I think I love it so much because of the branch and the people. For instance, my area bosses are always at the end of the phone if I need them. I really enjoy dealing with the public too and aim to make every customer want to come back. And they usually do.
My career story
Paul Furbank, Area Sales Manager (East Anglia). Field-based
I was working for a direct competitor, when I discovered that Wolseley were looking for a sales engineer to cover the East Anglian region. It was an opportunity to work for a company with a broad range of customers, products and services. Being in field sales I enjoy the opportunity to work with many different people across Wolseley, from various branches and backgrounds. When you’re working with a customer, it’s also great that Wolseley give you the space to use your own initiative and work out what’s best for the company and the customer.
My career story
Joe Marsh, Key Account Manager. Essex and North-East London.
Before I joined Wolseley, I didn’t know a lot about the company. But it offered great career progression from my previous role, with plenty of scope to develop further.
I really enjoy the freedom to make decisions and to work with our customers to meet their needs and create a win-win for both them and Wolseley. It gives me the chance to build a day-to-day rapport with them. I also enjoy working with plenty of talented and approachable colleagues in the operations and sales teams. It allows me to develop my knowledge, with support from all aspects of the business.
