We are regarded as the trusted decorating and DIY retail brand in London, selling paint, decorating accessories, tools, plumbing, electrical, woodwork materials and much more throughout our 30 stores (Soon to be 31).

With more stores opening and a need for more exceptional talent to join us as we expand, we invite you to consider a customer service apprenticeship with us at Leyland SDM.

Your training and development will be on the job with workshop days where you'll be learning all about customer service which will include online workshops with the Apprenticeship College in Hammersmith, West London.
