As part of our team, we’ll support you in developing your career which could involve further education or progression within the team/other areas of the business. Our impressive internal succession programme means, whatever it is you do with us, it will be easy for you to learn, grow and develop across the Travis Perkins Group.

We’ll also equip you with a benefits package that grows as you grow with the company:
  • Competitive performance related bonus
  • Save-as-you-earn scheme
  • Buy-as-you-earn scheme
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Colleague discount across a variety of Group businesses including; 20% off at Wickes and 30% off at Tile Giant, plus special discounts across our Trade Merchanting businesses.
