Each day at Leyland SDM is different; you do not know what to expect, in a good way I can ensure you! There is a sense of a family unit in the team that you work in, I have worked in the retail sector for a long time and have never experienced anything like this before, it must be unique to this business! When I joined over 6 years ago, I knew nothing about DIY. The training that I have received over the years has enabled me to share knowledge with customers and colleagues. I completed the fast-track managers programme and I took so much knowledge about leadership from it. I enjoy working in a company that celebrates diversity, champions equality, and respects everyone.
Deputy Store Manager, Streatham
Store Supervisor, Goodge Street
At Leyland SDM, everyday I feel more and more passionate about my job, taking on challenges, gaining knowledge and having lots of fun. What I enjoy most is working with my team. Every single person who is part of it has given me support since my first day. As a Store Supervisor I enjoy always being "in the action" and have different challenges every day. In my store we always rely on the company vision and values, making sure that every single customer that walks in the store is welcomed with a big smile and a great attitude. I’ve had many special moments since joining, but being promoted to a Store Supervisor has given me great confidence that I can grow in the company.

Leyland SDM has given me the opportunity to learn new skills and gain new experiences with different roles within the commercial team. The varied nature of my current role excites me everyday as I can contribute fresh ideas across numerous departments. It is a fast-paced and dynamic environment which requires everyone to be hands-on and is very motivating. The highlight of my career at Leyland SDM so far has been my quick progression from a graduate role into a management position.
