Yorkshire and the Humbers biggest technology company – we're not just a kitchen manufacturer!
BE PART OF A GREAT BRITISH SUCCESS STORY
Wren Kitchens is the UK’s Number 1 Kitchen Retailer, but we’re much more than that.
IT is at the heart of every kitchen that we make. From design and inspiration to manufacturing, delivery and installation we create dream kitchens for our customers with no middlemen.
Because we are involved from start to finish, it means that we have many verticals including HR, Retail, Logistics, Manufacturing, Training and Finance – all of which need the support of world class developers.
We need talented people who we will invest in, are you up for the challenge?
At the Real IT Awards 2020, our IT department won the prestigious ‘Project of the Year’ award.
Our dual screen, 3D planning technology, which has been rolled out to all of our showrooms across the UK, saw off competition from huge organisations such as McDonalds, Capgemini and Ricoh to make IT our latest awards winning department.
The UK’s largest IT Centre
In 2020, we invested £3million in building the UK’s largest IT Centre. With a whopping 28,000 sq.ft of floor space, we have created a huge tech hub, which includes 9 video conferencing suites, a cutting-edge IT monitoring centre, a lecture theatre and 2 dedicated VR studios.
From this Centre, we will continue to innovate and prototype new ideas, to ensure we maintain our world-class status in the industry.
Innovation in all of our projects
At Wren, we encourage all of our employees to come up with innovative ideas for how we can stay ahead of the competition.
Our IT department play a huge part in bringing these projects to life. From state-of-the-art virtual reality software to adapting our processes to an ever changing marketplace, there’s always something new going on at Wren!
Investing in our future
In 2019, Wrens first ever graduate scheme was implemented in to our IT department.
And with over 100 Graduates fresh out of University or College joining our schemes over the last two years, it’s safe to say that we are leading the way in developing the next generation of tech talent in the UK.
We have no plans to slow down in 2021, as we will see multiple schemes starting throughout the year. Could you be the next to join one of our Graduate Schemes?

What our employees think
Junior 3D Developer
There are a lot of great perks here, I really like the gym and I’m getting the opportunity to go through formal Unity training, a paid qualification. The culture here is great, a lot of us get quite excited about the technical aspects of the job – I personally find the work here fun!
You’d be surprised to learn we’re heavily invested into the Amazon eco system, and that
we’re using the most recent updates in a lot of projects. For me, the diversity of projects you get to work on is what makes Wren Kitchens such a great place to work.
I can really see my opportunities here at Wren, there are so many avenues to progress further and I hope to become a senior software developer working on 3D design. The academy has really built the fundamental foundations for me and I hope to build upon them as I learn more and more from my mentors.
IT Academy Graduate
The high-standards of training attracted me to work for Wren and so far, it’s lived up to my expectations and more. I’m confident I’ll gain some really good experience so it will stand me in good stead for a successful career in the industry.
