Lianne (Shop Manager)
14yrs with WJ

I started my WJ journey 14 years ago as a Full Time Sales Advisor then progressed to Deputy and now I’m Manager of my own shop. I love my job and love helping people, from a customer choosing the perfect gift to a colleague gaining confidence in themselves. The best part is everyone can afford a little bit of luxury at WJ.

Mary (Shop Manager)
3yrs with WJ

After 17 years with another company I took the brave step to join WJ 3 years ago.  I can honestly say it was the best move ever and I love coming to work every day. WJ had faith in me from day one, which helped me grow as a Manager, and I now mentor other shops.  A wonderful family based company - a pleasure to be part of.
