If you have the ambition and determination to succeed, a career with us can take you from yard work or counter sales up to senior management, supported by a training programme that is second to none.
From basic skills training through to apprenticeship schemes and the Builders Merchants Federation Diploma and Foundation Degree in Merchanting, we can provide you with the training and career path to suit.
We welcome applicants at any level. You do not need any formal qualifications to work with us, but we look for a good general standard of education, often including GCSEs (A-C) in Maths and English.

Plumbing Branch Supervisor, Enfield
PlumbersPal is our plumbing supplies business, with branches in Kentish Town and Enfield. We are looking for an experienced supervisor to look after our Enfield branch, which is situated within our Buttle’s branch there. You will be buying stock, taking calls from customers, quoting prices and supervising our sales counter. You may previously have worked for a plumbers’ merchant, or a similar trade counter operation, and this could be your opportunity to “run your own show” with the support of the Buttle’s Branch Manager to whom you will report. You will have a good working knowledge of plumbing and heating materials and ideally existing customer contacts in our trading area.

Yard Salesperson, Kentish Town
This is an opportunity to join the yard sales team at our smallest branch, where Buttle’s started back in 1919. It’s a varied job, both inside our warehouse and outside in the yard, serving customers, loading and unloading vehicles, checking stock and keeping the place tidy. You will be operating forklift trucks and lifting timber and building materials, so you will need to be physically fit. For more information and an application form, contact Adrian Kaczor, Branch Manager on 020 7485 8511 or email Adrian.email@example.com

Class 2 HGV driver required for our busy branch in Leighton Buzzard. Your vehicle is a recently-purchased DAF 12 tonne lorry with rear-mounted crane.
