Our approach to recruitment

We’re proud to employ the very best talent in the UK and beyond. Their talent and dedication are what make our business so successful. In order to select those people we apply an objective process to provide a world class candidate experience. Our process is built on ensuring equality of opportunity for all, a respect for your privacy and appointing the best person for the job.


Our recruitment process

Apply through our careers website

Once you’ve found a job that suits your skills and experience, follow the online application and upload your CV.

We’ll review your application

We’ll review your application based on your CV and any other information you give us when you apply. Then we’ll let you know if we want to take it further or not. And, if we do, we’ll arrange a phone interview with you.

We'll interview you over the telephone

One of our resourcing team will give you a call to ask a few questions about your experience and the skills you need for the job. If it looks like you might be right for the job, we’ll arrange a face-to-face interview. If not, we’ll also let you know.

We'll interview you in person

You’ll meet the hiring manager and a member of the team you could be joining. It’s a competency based interview, so we’ll be looking for examples of your skills and experience to show why you’re right for the job. For some roles we might ask you to another interview to meet a senior manager. We could ask you to do a presentation, or psychometric and ability test. But don’t worry, we’ll give you plenty of time to prepare.

We'll let you know our decision

After all your interviews, one of our resourcing team will be back in touch to let you know our decision. If you’ve been successful, we’ll make you a verbal offer and talk you through all the details. Then we’ll follow up with a formal written offer. Of course, any offer will be subject to references and background checks.


Our use of agencies

We try to fill all our vacancies without the help of agencies. But of course, sometimes we do need to use agencies from our preferred supplier list. When this happens, the roles can only be placed with the agencies by the resourcing team.

We review our preferred supplier list every year, so if your agency would like to provide recruitment services to Wolseley UK, please email with the subject heading ‘Preferred Supplier List Application’ and we’ll keep your details for consideration. Please note that we don’t accept unsolicited CVs from any suppliers who aren’t on our preferred supplier list.


Our recruitment team

We're always pleased to hear from talented people. So if you have any questions about the opportunities that we have available at Wolseley, or if there's anything else you'd like to know before you apply (or indeed during the application process), please don't hesitate to get in touch.
