Lawsons Careers

Your Career at Lawsons Starts Here


The term “family” really is the perfect way to describe our company and the culture we have built since we were founded back in 1921. Professionalism, quality and ambition run through all aspects of our daily work.

People join us because they want to work for a brand where they have their own individual impact and their personalities can shine. We allow people to grow, mature and reach the potential of their own skills and abilities.

 

Where Can You Join Us?

Each of our branches have their own unique culture, but all our work spaces share that sense of camaraderie that really defines our family culture. Colney Heath is our HQ and the heartbeat of company operations.

With continued expansion & acquisitions, our business is continuing to grow across the United Kingdom.

 

What can you bring to the table?
