About Poundworld

We are a leading value variety retail business with over 350 stores and 7,000 employees across the United Kingdom.

Operating under the Poundworld and Bargain Buys brand names, we serve over two million customers and sell around 11 million products a week. Stocking over 8,000 lines, our business provides shoppers with savings on a range of top brands, across categories such as grocery, cleaning, health and beauty, pet care, toys and stationery, to help them make unbelievable savings on their weekly shop.

Poundworld was formed in 2004, however, we can trace our origins back to 1974 and a market stall in Wakefield, West Yorkshire. Today, we are headquartered in a purpose built, 500,000 square foot head office and distribution centre in Normanton, West Yorkshire, and owned by leading global private equity firm TPG. Under the stewardship of CEO, Gerry Gray, former Chief Operating Officer at Tesco, the company has ambitions to increase in size significantly over the next five years.

We were named in the prestigious Sunday Times ‘Top Track 250’ in both 2014 and 2016 as one of the nation’s fastest growing companies.

To date, we have raised over £800,000 across our store estate and head office for our charity partner, Marie Curie to help care for those living with a terminal illness.

Not everyone joins us as an experienced retailer! In fact it may have been your ‘potential’ that got you the job.

That potential, with the training and development programmes we have in-place means that we will ensure that in no time you have the skills and know-how to take your place within the team.
