Our People

“I joined Smyths over 7 years ago. After two internal role changes I'm now Head Buyer of the Preschool Department. You’re the CEO of your own department here. There is guidance and rules but ultimately you own it. You decide on what toys to order. You own the supplier relationships. The travel element is huge. We’re also expanding at a really fast pace. My top words to describe Smyths? Exciting, fast-paced and never a dull moment!”

Ashling Higgins

Head Buyer

“I started out working part-time in a Smyths Toys store in Bangor, Co. Down while I was still at secondary school! After 7 years store-side, I followed my passion for IT and now look after the retail point of sale system across 115 Smyths stores. I’m in my 11th year and still have lots to do! You own your role and your work here. You’ll be working on some really exciting technology. Smyths invest in you. It’s a very social and open working environment, some of my best friends are here.”
