The Leyton story as told by our employees


Sales can be hard work and it isn’t always ‘fun and games’, but the people are really what helps and on tough days it’s your colleagues who get you through. I think that’s why people want to work here. At the end of the day there are loads of sales jobs out there which can provide you with a good commission structure, but at Leyton it’s the progression, the people and the management which are second to none
