Lauren (Shop Manager)
4yrs with WJ

What's it like working at WJ…try 'FAB'. I started as a Sales Advisor, I listened, learned and promoted my ideas and being a dedicated and loyal team player brought its rewards - after 2 years I was promoted to Deputy Manager and now im a Manager of my own shop. I'm lucky enough to travel the UK meeting lots of people and promoting WJ. Everyone wants that job they love and I've got mine.

I joined WJ 3 years ago. I have very quickly felt part of the Warren James family and have been given some great opportunities to get involved with various aspects of the business. I love the friendly atmosphere that runs through the whole company. WJ is all about the people.
