Life at B&Q
What does it mean to wear the orange apron?
We’re proud of the B&Q orange apron and everything it stands for - helping people create better homes by making home improvement easier.
And that’s exactly where you come in…
The heart of the business
Every day our people unleash their talents, potential and unique personalities, to create an exciting, vibrant and driven environment, and a strong sense of community. Our people are our biggest asset and by encouraging them to do what they do best, we continue to become more successful.
As you would expect from B&Q, we offer a fantastic rewards and benefits package. By getting this right, we ensure that our people are happy and taken care of. You’ll be entitled to competitive pay, generous bonuses and annual leave, plus life assurance and healthcare, plus lots more.
A great bunch
You’ll have the opportunity to work alongside a diverse team - many of our stores have four generations working under one roof. Whether you’re stepping through the doors of our Store Support Office or one of our stores, you’ll be greeted by passionate and motivated home improvement enthusiasts and experts.
Whether you’re beginning your journey or stepping into your second or third career path, we have a Talent Development programme to support and guide you. We offer our people the chance to thrive, and the opportunity to move your career through different roles within B&Q.
We believe there are many ways to learn - through others, by creating your own learning opportunities or through a formal Learning & Development programme. Whichever way you choose to learn we’ll encourage you to make the most of your talent and support you in driving your development forward.
A new day every day
You’ll soon discover that with us, every day is different. You might be helping a customer bring their dream kitchen to life, visiting trade fairs to source new products, working on a new marketing campaign or preparing for the opening of a brand new store. We believe in encouraging our people to get involved and supporting them to try something new. Each day can bring exciting new challenges and experiences to help you make the most of your career.
