At Kingfisher our customers come from all walks of life, and so do we. We want to ensure that all colleagues, future colleagues, and applicants to Kingfisher are treated equally regardless of age, gender, marital or civil partnership status, colour, ethnic or national origin, culture, religious belief, philosophical belief, political opinion, disability, gender identity, gender expression or sexual orientation.
Today, there is no neutral.
When it comes to inclusion & diversity, there can be no more standing on the side lines. It’s time to take change into our own hands.
Our acknowledgement that we can do more – and, most importantly, our promise that we will.
Indifference affects us all. Whether we know it, or not. Being indifferent today just isn’t an option. It isn’t an answer. And it isn’t how we want to work. It’s the opposite of where we’re going.
And why it’s time to build ourselves a better home.
Because that’s how we’ll become a better business. One that reflects the customers we serve and our colleagues. One that helps people feel empowered to be themselves – meaning they never miss an opportunity. And one that knows thinking inclusion first isn’t just the right thing to do; it’s the best thing to do.
It’s time to chip away at that coat of indifference and build the Kingfisher we can be.
We’ve formed four Affinity Networks to help spearhead our inclusion and diversity efforts and form an unshakeable alliance, bound together by a desire to make Kingfisher a more inclusive place to work.
Our Race and Culture Affinity Network, Gender Affinity Network, LGBTQ+ Affinity Network and now our Neurodiversity Affinity Network are open to all and dedicated to working towards achieving our goal of ensuring strength in inclusion and diversity.
We advocate the benefits of a flexible and hybrid working environment, recognising that this means different things, to different people, in different roles. Flexibility is key here. With more freedom with how you split your week, you can always be at your best. In work, and life. Only you know how you want to develop. We’ll give you the tools and support you need to do so.

We combine the benefits of physical and digital retail, stay ahead of market trends and grow our digital sales in the face of intense competition.
Digital transformation enables us to evolve beyond siloed thinking and traditional operating models. Serving the customer means solving problems at the touchpoints closest to the customer. Whether it’s store managers, e-commerce platforms, or marketing communications, we use cross-functional teams to facilitate human-centric design. From designers to engineers, our agile scrums comprise the talent we need to solve problems for the customer at every level of their retail experience, from pre-sale communications to product design, across every brand and every country.
We’re embedding technology across our supplier and customer journeys and we’re building bespoke approaches to industry challenges such as payment systems and fulfilment.
