Why WHSmith?

Everybody knows WHSmith. We’re one of the UK’s oldest retailers (established in 1792), and you more than likely grew up with a High Street store nearby. What you may not know is that we’re constantly innovating and expanding on an incredible global scale.


Today, you’ll find us in many travel locations including railway and bus stations, airports and hospitals to name but a few, as well as locations worldwide. We serve hundreds of millions of customers every year and 59% of the UK population visit a WHSmith store each year. Our secret is simple – a progressive attitude.


We’ll give you the freedom and responsibility to make decisions that drive our business. Deliver results and your career can grow very quickly.


Join us, and you’ll have support and an amazing team behind you. In fact, in a survey of the UK’s ten friendliest companies, WHSmith came second. Our various training programmes help our people learn and develop more quickly.
