Undergraduate placement scheme

At Screwfix, we’ve got something for everyone, from digital gurus to retail entrepreneurs. Most of our placements are based in our Head Office in Yeovil in the heart of the Somerset countryside, except our Retail positions, where you’ll be working from one of our bustling Trade Counters across the country. Wherever you’re based, you’ll be gaining real, meaty commercial experience – and the chance to innovate, learn and explore. Plenty to get your teeth into.

Why should you apply for a Placement Scheme with us?

HUGE GROWTH In the first six months of this year, our sales were up 24% on last year, and we have opened 120 stores in the last two years alone, with loads more in the pipeline. And we’re all very proud of the fact that we’ve reached a billion pounds in turnover. As you can imagine, with all this growth, there are huge opportunities for growing your career with us. Gigantic, in fact.

BIG IDEAS WELCOME We’re a fearless bunch. We like to experiment with big, bold new ideas, from e-commerce solutions that break the mould, to novel ways to break into new markets. We welcome the creative risk-taker with open arms.

REAL ROLE. REAL RESPONSIBILITIES All of our placements are actual, real live roles, which we’re filling with undergraduates. That means real responsibilities, big projects and a direct impact on the business. On a Screwfix placement, you’ll be right in the thick of a omni channel retail revolution. Plus, you’ll also be earning whilst you learn, with a £17k salary and benefits package.

THE CHANCE TO BUILD A CAREER WITH US If you make your mark in your placement, you’ll have the opportunity to work for us post-graduation. Which means the chance to build your career with one of the most innovative retailers around.
