Our people are our biggest assets and that's why it's important for us to recruit talented individuals to drive business success.

Your development is also important to us so find out what it's like to work
and grow at B&Q.

Having a diverse workforce has long been important for B&Q. Not just because it's the right thing to do, but because it makes business sense. To understand our customers, it helps if our people are just as diverse. It gives the business different perspectives and a richer mix of experience.

We've earned a reputation for employing older workers and in 2013 won the 50+ Award for “Best Employer of those who are 50+”. In 2006, B&Q was one of only two retailers to make The Times “Top 50 Places Where Women Want To Work”, and then continued this achievement for four consecutive years. We have also established over 300 partnerships with local disability groups around the country to learn more about improving our environment and services for the disabled.

We're really proud of our reputation as a great place to work. Whether you work in one of our stores or at our Store Support Office, we want you to feel happy in your work.
