As a Developer or Analyst, Solutions Architect or Project Manager, whatever your role, IT at WHSmith never stands still.

From Funky Pigeon to in-store technology, every area is constantly innovating. It’s an approach that’s brought industry firsts, such as the original self-service checkouts. Through further pioneering development, we’ve created models our customers love! We’ve been just as busy behind the scenes, working on Business Intelligence. With smarter, easier-to-action insights, our analysis is second to none. IT has also helped make overseas growth a reality and with the latest systems to help us, we’ve opened stores all over the world.

Working on major projects like these is great – but the best part is seeing your work in action. With millions of customers and thousands of employees, the impact you can make is enormous. There’s nothing like the feeling of seeing your idea making a difference and thinking ‘I did that!’.

With this kind of freedom, you’ll get lots of responsibility. You’re trusted to get things done, right from the very start. If that sounds daunting, don’t worry, you’ll get bags of on-the-job training and experienced experts to work with. You’ll also be free to share your thinking and to look beyond IT. Our business depends on team work and extensive collaboration. With all kinds of suppliers and partners you will need to link in with, our team has a vast and diverse working environment.

So what can you expect if you join us? You could take our promotional capabilities to the next level. Introduce brand new digital and media services. Or play your part in delivering our ambitious digital and multi-channel strategy. With technology moving so fast, the possibilities are endless.
