About the job
Do you want to make an active contribution as a non-executive director to this unique, vertically integrated, global, premium product business? Could you contribute at board level to this Stock Exchange listed company's constant drive for improved products, performance and shareholder return.
We are looking for someone who can effectively discuss, agree and mandate strategies. You are the sort of person who will always put the company's interest first and who can bring open-minded and considered good judgement to the boardroom. Proven expertise in manufacturing and/or logistics would be of particular interest to us.

About Games Workshop
Games Workshop is a business with a strong internal culture. We have a definite set of ideas, beliefs and ways of doing business. We believe that how you behave does matter, therefore, we believe that attitudes – such as honesty and integrity – are even more important than skills. We will happily teach you the skills needed for many roles if you bring a great attitude to your work.
We believe that everybody in the company should be continually making things better for our customers, whether this is by providing ever better products or delivering ever greater service. We are hard working, committed and cheerful. Above all, we try to put the needs of the business first in our decision-making.
We have a strong culture of personal development at Games Workshop and there are many resources and opportunities for both personal and professional development. If the way you behave at work and the attitudes you display fit with ours, it is highly likely you will be successful, well rewarded and happy. However, it is only fair to say that people who don’t fit with our culture, or who play at fitting, will be unhappy and consequently unsuccessful.
