Property & Construction

From CAD to Construction, this team are building our future.

Property and Maintenance

Wherever you go in the UK, a WHSmith store is never far away. In fact, there are over 600 High Street stores and over 570 Travel outlets across the country, all in prime locations, with over 180 more scattered right across the world. Property and Maintenance manages this estate and comes up with clever solutions for lease and maintenance issues.

In this department, we need people who can be trusted to deliver. You’ll often be working remotely, so you’ve got to be self-reliant. However, you still need to be a diligent teamworker – someone who’ll communicate clearly during every project. At any one time the team could be juggling 150 initiatives, from critical lease renewals to store openings. All of which means you need to be great at organising your time.

We want our team to be the best in the industry. So we’ll help you develop so you’re among the most qualified in your field. Lift Technology, Electrical Engineering, Surveying – whatever your area, you’ll be an expert at WHSmith.


Construction is all about turning plans into reality. It’s very varied work, where you could go from building a Coffee House café, to an airport store on the other side of the world. These kinds of projects involve dozens of stakeholders. It’s therefore important that you’re a whizz at relationship management. Our business can help bring your technical skills up to speed. However, you must have natural drive and customer focus, plus a gift for managing multiple projects.

Whether you’re in Property or Construction you’ll be working across both the High Street and Travel businesses. So your aptitude for collaboration will play a key part when working with other departments such as Central Operations, Store Planning and IT.
