Careers & jobs

Team background

Kellaway’s most valuable asset is our team of employees. We pride ourselves on delivering first rate customer service to a standard that cannot be matched by the national chains, and owe our reputation to our excellent staff.

We strive for a culture which is friendly, team-oriented, enthusiastic and committed.

Kellaway Building Supplies is a family business; it is independent and intends to remain this way.  Currently we employ around 130 staff and job and career opportunities include management, sales, customer service and warehousing.

Our Group Head Office includes departments for purchase ledger, credit control, IT, personnel, training, stock management and marketing.

Merchant of Choice for Employees

We are an equal opportunities employer and our employment policy is one of continuous development and support.

Kellaway Building Supplies is committed to the development of all employees.  We aim to promote a third of senior management roles from within.

To support the growth of the business and to achieve our goals we have a management development programme in place.  Successful applicants to this programme are enrolled in external training programmes, given internal coaching and receive hands-on experience in managing a branch.

It’s very pleasing to see people progress their careers through the business and succeed to a supervisory or managerial position. Nevertheless, we recognise that individual aspirations differ and that many people will achieve their full potential and job satisfaction in a valuable support function rather than a management role.

Employee benefits include a stakeholder pension scheme with additional contributions by the company, free life assurance, an independent financial advice service, contractual sick pay scheme and staff purchase arrangements.
