Whether you’re the friendly face on one of our tills, answering queries on the shop floor – sharing your product knowledge, or ensuring our displays are always as they should be, stocking shelves so everything’s easy to find. No matter what you’re doing, you’ll pull together with your team mates so that our customers want to keep coming back.

    Who we’re looking for

    Perhaps surprisingly, what you don’t need is bags of retail or customer service experience. We’re looking for people who have a real desire to learn and to make our customers happy! You’ll need to be a great listener, good to talk to and naturally helpful. The rest will come. And if you want to get on, we’ll positively encourage you. As a Sales Assistant, there’s nothing stopping you becoming a future Store Manager or working in one of our Head Offices!

    Join WHSmith and not only can you expect a warm welcome from your team, but this could be the start of a whole new career! Our airport stores are very fast-paced and you never know who you might get to impress – from visiting WHSmith Board members to travelling celebrities. We’d love you to grow with us, so you’ll have access to lots of training via our Retail Academy, and we’ll help you gain a nationally recognised qualification! Our aim is to give you the skills you need to help you fulfil your potential.
