Careers at Jarrold

Join the best independent retail business in the country - and enjoy a refreshingly independent approach to your career

Being part of Jarrold is more than a little bit different to working at any other department store. For a start, we are wholly independent meaning all the decisions about the store - from what we sell to the events we host, are all made right here in Norwich, not at a distant head office hundreds of miles away. By joining us you will become part of a team where your opinions and ideas matter - and can make a real difference to how we run our business.

A major employer in Norwich for more than 190 years, our sense of heritage remains strong and as you can imagine, excellent customer service is a long-held tradition at the very core of our business.  However, as our ongoing investment programme and recent improvements to the store demonstrate, we are a progressive and forward-thinking company with the aim of delivering the products and services our customers demand - now and in the future.

Customer facing roles are essential in our business, but in addition we have over 400 staff working in a diverse array of roles behind the scenes, including marketing, catering, e-commerce, buildings maintenance, warehouse management and many more.

We are always looking for enthusiastic and talented individuals; by joining us you will become part of one the most well-known and best respected brands in East Anglia and enjoy the opportunity to build a satisfying career with many benefits.
