The home of the trendsetters
What we do
We’re a pretty creative bunch. We research and develop the seasonal design trends across all wilko store categories. That’s coming up with ideas for the look and feel of everything from seasonal products to categories such as kitchen and bedding, all the way through to stationery. It can involve travelling across the UK, Europe or worldwide, all in the name of trend research, and working with category management teams to create in-store ranges that co-ordinate across all wilko departments.
The difference we make
We bring wilko stores to life with our enticing product ranges. We can talk to you about product design and colour all day, because it’s what we’re passionate about. Dedicated, creative and fun, each of our designers is responsible for a specific category along with a mixture of textile designers, graphic illustrators and 3D designers.
Now that’s interesting
Did you know that the top selling colours in cushions are currently grey and ochre? To date, our grey faux linen cushion has sold over 13k units since its launch, or that as a team we’re incredibly proud to have developed the core colour palette for Home.
A place to grow
Career progression is here for the taking. You can sign up to learning modules for personal development and of course, share experience and knowledge with the team. Being dedicated and organised are as highly regarded as your ability to design unique commercial ranges and, with our support, you could go from being an assistant designer, to being responsible for your own category which means liaising with buyers and category management team, to eventually managing the whole creative team.
Why you should join us
There’s a real career path to follow in this team. What makes it extra special is the fact that wilko is a family-owned business with heritage. The values really do make a difference, and everyone here is hard-working, committed, dedicated and forward-thinking. There’s also a genuine feeling of pride when you go into a wilko store and see the products you’ve developed being popped into a customer’s shopping basket!
