Why Join Us?

Travis Perkins plc, is one of the UK’s leading companies in the builders' merchanting and home improvement market, with 20+ industry leading brands in over 2,000 nationwide locations. Born out of the merger in 1988 between Travis & Arnold and Sandell Perkins, the group can trace its roots back over 200 years and continues to grow today by following a successful strategy of acquisition and organic growth. It’s not hard to see that a career here can mean all kinds of things to all kinds of people. Whatever it is you do with us, we make it easy for you to do it well across the Group.

We have been recognised as one of Britain’s top employers by the Top Employers Institute for the last eight years. We invest heavily in training and development for our colleagues, so they can deliver the levels of service our customers deserve.

Travis Perkins perks are plenty. On top of our competitive pay and benefits packages that grow with you as you grow in the business, we pride ourselves on coming up with great ways to reward our colleagues. For starters, everyone can share in the success of the Group through a performance-related bonus and two share schemes, ‘Save-as-you-earn’ and ‘Buy-as-you-earn’.

Through our ‘Building Britain Award’ programme, we also recognise and celebrate extra special contributions from colleagues across the Group.

Our acclaimed ‘Reward Gateway’ gives all of us access to over 1,000 retailer discounts – and after two months working here you’ll also get your colleague discount care, entitling you to discounts on all our products.

Flexible working, maternity and paternity schemes, childcare vouchers, an Employee Assistance Programme and a pension scheme that is open to all colleagues, are all part of what we offer.

And because we all need time away from work to help keep us feeling fresh and motivated, our full-time holiday package typically includes 22 days plus public holidays, and that increases with the time you work with us.

We look out for you because we’re a company that operates with ‘new-fashioned’ family values.
