At Timpson, we recruit entirely on personality. We are a family-run business, and we never forget that; without employing great colleagues, we wouldn’t be where we are today. All of our colleagues are considered to be part of our family, and looking after them is our number one priority. We know that as long as we employ great colleagues and we look after them well, they’ll provide our customers with amazing service.
We don’t expect you to know how to cut a key or repair a pair of shoes when you join us. We believe in investing in and developing our own people. This is why all of our colleagues begin a comprehensive training scheme on their first day with the business. As a general rule, we promote from within, so we love ambitious people who want to progress in their careers with us. To this end, we recently completed building works on the Nest building which will house the Timpson University. James Timpson (CEO), Gouy Hamilton-Fisher (Colleague Support Director), Perry Watkins (Retail Director) and all of our Area Managers began their careers with us working in one of our shops. This goes to show that there are lots of opportunities for career progression in our fast-growing business.
Timpson is a true equal opportunities employer with a simple and transparent recruitment model - we look for great personalities! We will consider anyone and everyone for a role within our business, regardless of their background or history. This includes ex-offenders and other marginalised groups.
