Meet the people team
What we do
We do a lot here at wilko for all our employees. From recruitment and benefits to training and performance support, we do whatever it takes to make all our people the best they can be.
We try to balance our heart with our head, always looking to find harmony between commercial decisions and doing the right thing for all our people.
The difference we make
We get involved in every area of wilko, and we’re part of every big change the business makes. We’re the glue that holds things together in the good times as well as the more challenging moments.
At the end of the day, the biggest difference we make is to people. We’re here to help everyone at wilko have an enjoyable and positive career. And that means the world to us.
As a family business, we don’t just focus on our team members’ lives at work, but also on how we can support them outside of work too. For example, we have partnerships like Health Assured, which makes sure our colleagues have someone to talk to, whatever the issue.
A place to grow
We have both HR generalists and specialists in our team. So, no matter your HR background or preference, whether you’re taking your first step into HR or looking to become our next HR Director, it’s likely we’ll have a role for you. Once here, the scale and scope of our department means you’ll be able to take your career in all sorts of directions – upwards, sideways, diagonal – you choose. We’ll be here with all the guidance and support you need.
Why you should join us
We’re a brilliant team to join if you want to spread your HR wings. The range of work we do means that you’ll be able to do whatever interests you the most. It also means that every day is interesting, because you never know what’s coming next.
We’re a lovely inclusive team to be part of. We’re supportive, can-do to the core, and like to keep things fun. So, if you like learning, making a real difference to others but with laughter and a lot of fun along the way, we’re the team for you.
