Be yourself
at Screwfix

We all want to feel able to be ourselves. To have the same treatment, opportunities and recognition. When we stop thinking about our differences and come together, we’re united by our ambitions. This year, we launched our Inclusion Network, Us. It’s an initiative driven by colleagues from across the business who are passionate about helping to build an accepting, inclusive and educated culture where colleagues feel they can be their true selves and reach their potential. This is when we can accomplish incredible things.

Working during COVID-19

As an essential retailer, we are still trading even through lockdowns. But it’s important our colleagues can stay safe at work.

Social Distancing

We have social distancing measures in place across all of our stores and Contact Centre, with colleagues in Head Office encouraged to work from home. We have also laid out one-way systems and 2m distance signage across sites.

Colleague Protection

To ensure protection, PPE is available for our colleagues and face coverings must be worn by customers. We also have sanitising stations available across all of our sites and regularly test our sites to ensure they remain sterile.

Perspex screens

We have also installed Perspex screens in store so our colleagues are protected, and our customers can continue to shop safely and normally.

Application process

Applying

Fill in some basic details about yourself and upload your most recent CV. If you’re applying for a S.A. you’ll also need to complete a Situational Judgement Test.
