General Retail Talent

Meet Leroy

Meet Leroy, he’s from our retail team and works in our Handsworth shop in the West Midlands. We went behind the bet and found out a little bit more about Leroy and his life at William Hill.

How long have you worked for the Company?

I’ve been here for 13 years, I did work here before for 11 years but had a 4 year break where I lived in Germany and the USA.

What was the first shop you worked in?

Haymills in Birmingham… The Manager was called Derek Mills and he used to answer the phone & say… “Hills, Mills, Haymills”.

I was a Saturday worker and my pay was £5 and fish & chips!

Who’s your favourite sports person?

Lester Piggot

Favourite song?

Anything by UB40 who just also happen to be friends of mine.

What’s your most memorable day at work?

I was late for work… the one and only time I might add. I arrived and there was a knock at the door, it was John Brown who was the boss of William Hill and two Area Managers. I nearly died… John Brown helped me put the papers up but I did get a call from the area manager the next day!
