Like-minded

At Vitsœ we always have an eye open for like-minded, passionate, affable people who might want to work with us. (And, if you are like-minded, you will have read all of the following, and quite a bit of this website, before contacting us.)

The current vacancies are beneath this section. Intentionally.

Cutting corners

In a world where short-term gain, cutting corners, insincerity and depersonalisation have become the norms, we try to build long-term relationships with our customers, suppliers and employees by treating them respectfully, and by demonstrating that we are clearly committed to you/them for the long term.

We will not accept short-term gain at the expense of long-term loss.

Integrity

If you have ever dealt with us, you will hopefully have discovered that we attach as much importance to the integrity of the people who pack your boxes, drive our vans and install your shelves as we do to those who answer the telephones, plan your shelving systems or pay the bills (on time).

Eclectic

As a customer once pointed out to us, Vitsœ is a wonderfully eclectic group of people of all ages that includes everyone from artists to zoologists – and lots inbetween (writers, painters, sculptors, leatherworkers, musicians, weavers, modelmakers, sailors, photographers, road-racers and mountain-bikers). Many of us at Vitsœ can boast of a childhood fascination with Lego. Does this sound familiar?

Just a job?

We are always delighted to receive interesting CVs so please email yours if you would like to consider joining us. However, be sure to tell us, in writing, why you think that working at Vitsœ might make a difference to both your life and to Vitsœ. We need to know that you want to work with us, not that you just want a job.

Oh, and think twice before sending a CV that lists your interests as “going to cinema, meeting friends”. Is that really all there is to you?

Diversity

Vitsœ is an international and multi-cultural business with customers, suppliers, employees and locations across the globe. Diversity breeds creativity and, in an environment where employees are encouraged to think for themselves, the better and richer solutions come from the breadth of Vitsœ’s employees. Vitsœ is empowered as an employer with a diverse workforce that provides equal opportunities for everyone regardless of their gender, religion or belief, ethnic, cultural or national origins, disability, sexual orientation, marital status, education or age.

Obscure

You should be aware that we will want to talk to you on the telephone before we meet you, and that we might ask you to prepare a short presentation on an obscure topic for your interview or to bring something you have made with you.

If you are successful at interview, we will ask you to spend a trial day with us when you will have the opportunity to discover much more about us.

And finally, once you start working with us, there will be an agreed trial period during which both you and we can assess if the chemistry really works.

Time-wasting

If any of the above is not to your liking, then it is best if you do not contact us in the first place. We do not wish to waste your time.

Recently graduated?

If you have recently graduated or are nearing the end of your course and wondering what the world has in store, have a read. There are people at Vitsœ in key jobs who joined us directly from education. We prefer to teach you rather than unteach you later on.
