Have you got what it takes to make customers happy? Could you lead by example to be a role model for our team? Join us as a Supervisor in one of our High Street stores and your talents could take you far.

We currently have multiple Supervisor vacancies in our High Street. Right in the hustle and bustle of the city, these stores are fast-paced and full of activity. This is a great role to kick-start your WHSmith career – in such high profile locations, who knows where your journey might take you?

This is a fantastic opportunity if you are looking to join a growing and successful retailer that offers career development and progression!

What you’ll do:

As a Supervisor you’ll be responsible for driving sales, inspiring the teams and making sure every customer has a brilliant experience. In our High Street stores, it’s all about providing an outstanding customer service - whether they’re new in store or a long-time customer, they’ll leave satisfied every time. A role model for the team, you’ll lead junior team members while still getting stuck in. Tenacity, drive and good people management will go a very long way. By maintaining excellent store standards and exceptional service, your store will be a valued part of the community.

What’s in it for you

Taking on lots of responsibility, we’ll trust you to get things done and to use your initiative. If you’ve got a good idea, come out and tell us. We welcome fresh thinking – it could earn you new opportunities. Along with an open, idea-friendly culture, we offer excellent training to help Supervisors learn and progress. We’ll also reward you with some fantastic flexible benefits, including a discount of up to 50% in our High Street stores and access to a range of discounts with other retailers. Plus, flexible working, childcare vouchers, a pension and much more.

Who we’re looking for

For this kind of role, you need some retail experience and to understand how to lead and motivate a team. Ideally, you’ve worked in a business that’s just as customer-focused as ours. With this background, you’ll know how to give great customer service, and your enthusiasm will inspire your team. You’ll take pride in sharing your knowledge and seeing staff excel. Ready to step up when the Store Manager or Assistant Manager is not around, you’ll be determined, good with people and driven to meet targets.

About us

You may know we operate on the high street, in rail and bus stations, airports, hospitals, universities and workplaces. But you may be surprised to learn we’ve been around since 1792 and have over 14,000 employees across the globe. We’re continually growing by putting our customers at the heart of all we do and we grow our people too. At WHSmith there are No Limits to where your career can go!
