    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at B&Q (United Kingdom) in May 2021

    Interview

    After receiving a phone call, I had an email regarding the interview. It was a one-to-one interview, however there were two interviewers which convened afterwards. It took just over an hour.

A moment of fame for our colleague Joshua as he featured in a local newspaper, telling his story of joining us in-store after completing his college’s Outreach programme. In the article, Joshua’s dad commented: “It’s a great opportunity for him. Joshua has autism so something like this is a really big achievement and we are so proud of him.” We also spoke to Andy, Joshua's store manager, who said: "Joshua’s first few shifts have been really good, he has fully embraced everything he has been shown and is an extremely positive person. It’s been great to see him engaging with his colleagues and that he seems to be getting so much out of his role." You can read the full article below. We can’t wait to see where your journey with B&Q will take you, Joshua! #TogetherWeCan 🌟
