CChallenges. We thrive on them here. It’s what keeps us motivated, makes every day fresh and exciting and sets a retail career here apart from the rest. Yes, it can sometimes be tough, but we believe in digging deep and pushing ourselves to constantly deliver – for ourselves and our customers.

With over 1,000 stores across Europe (and more on the way), there's bound to be a Holland & Barrett near you. And no matter which store you join us in, you can rest assured you'll be joining a friendly and supportive team who’ll help you to become a health and nutrition expert – and really make something of your career.

It’s not just a job

(it’s a way of life… and a career too)

When it comes to sheer depth and breadth of training and development, take it from us, there’s nowhere quite like Holland & Barrett. You’ll feel the difference right away. Join us in store and you’ll have the opportunity to work towards professional qualifications (A level equivalent) that show the world you really do know your stuff.

It’s challenging. It’s hard work. And it’s certainly not for the faint hearted. But if you care about helping people as much as we do, you’ll love learning all about what it takes to help every customer who walks through our doors. Whether they want dietary advice, help with a cold, or even if they just want to polish up their guns, you’ll know just what to do.

And here’s the real deal breaker. The more you learn, the more you can earn.

From there, whether you want to specialise in sports, nutrition, beauty, aromatherapy, or even if you just want to move up into more senior roles in store, you can do it all at Holland & Barrett.

Becoming a Wise Owl

(learning your bits and bobs from your baobabs)

What sets us apart from any other high street retailer is the ability our people have to help our customers with any queries they have. So, it stands to reason that you’ll need to know all there is to know about the products we sell. That’s what it means to become a Wise Owl. It’s the mandatory training you’ll undertake when you work for us. Here’s how it works:

Learning to fly

To make sure you can deliver an award winning performance (with absolutely no danger of fluffing your lines), we’ll start by introducing you to all the basics. Things like nutrition, healthy eating, vitamins, supplements and the 20 most common questions people ask. It takes around 40 hours of learning, through workshops, spending time on the shop floor, and study time too.

Being qualified to advise

Here you’ll dig deeper and learn things more in-depth. That means around 70 hours of getting to know the features and benefits of our products inside out. Being qualified to advise is a prestige status - it gives you the confidence to offer customers better quality advice. What’s more, you become an official Wise Owl too…something you’ll no doubt want to tweet about afterwards.

Flight Paths (setting your course)

Once you know all there is to know about our products, you’ll have the opportunity to become an expert in an area of your choice. If you have a passion for, say, sports, management or beauty, then here you can learn more about it and specialise in that. It’s all part of setting your course! From there, you can pick up further qualifications, and earn extra benefits too.
