Before You Apply
While we are really keen for you to apply, we don’t want you to waste your time. So before you go any further, there are some important questions you need to answer. Do you have the right to work in the UK? Do you have a National Insurance number? And can you provide employment, character or educational references and contact details for up to the past five years (role dependant)? If you can answer ‘yes’, that’s great news as you can apply to work at WHSmith. However, you still might also like to think about how you’d fit in – is WHSmith the right place for you? Find out by reading Why WHSmith?
When you apply, we’ll aim to respond via email. That means you need a valid email address. Please be aware that our emails can sometimes end up in your ‘Junk Mail’ folder so please don’t forget to check this as well as your Inbox.
You’ll need to apply online – it should take you about 15 minutes. There are clear instructions at every stage and if you need to take a break, don’t worry, you can save your application and finish it later. Once we have your application, we’ll look at it carefully to see if you’re right for the role. If you haven’t received a phone call or an invitation to interview email after two to three weeks, unfortunately you haven’t been successful on this occasion.
