Matt (Shop Manager)
2yrs with WJ

I have been part of WJ for 2 years, I can't believe how much I have achieved in such a short space of time. I have helped & supported in new shops, this has given me the opportunity to help grow teams of people and in turn has helped me grow as Manager. Working at WJ I face new challenges everyday, I look forward to what each day has in store for me. Having this job has given me so much both personally and professionally, I could not imagine working anywhere else but WJ.
