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.

Who are we?

Long term

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?

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 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.

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?

What happens next?

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.

Current vacancies

Join our business team: Supply-chain coordinator required

We are looking for an organised and meticulous person to join our team to take full responsibility for stock control and focus on maximising the benefits of Vitsœ’s demand-driven production model.


This role directly facilitates the fulfilment of Vitsœ’s promises to its customers and has a direct impact on the business as a whole: Vitsœ can only dispatch stock that is physically available and can only preserve margin through diligent procurement decisions.

A responsive and committed candidate will ensure there is always stock of the desired quality available when demanding customers need it.

This is a great opportunity to develop the role within Vitsœ’s ambitious business development plans.

Join our London team: technology lead

Technology at Vitsœ does not simply serve the global business – it is at its heart.

We wish to recruit a highly effective and innovative technology team leader who will be responsible for the best use of technology across Vitsœ’s business; the leadership of its in-house technology team and the management of multiple software development projects.

Reporting to the managing director, you will lead and support a small multi-disciplinary team of developers, UI and UX designers; unifying disparate technology systems and safeguarding the stability, effectiveness and continuity of Vitsœ’s on-going software development.

You will need to identify future technology needs and opportunities across the business and effectively prioritise projects while managing expectations and team resources. Collaborating openly and effectively within a non-siloed, flat business structure, you will have a practical, hands-on approach to everything from reviewing and approving code to developing new software tools and business solutions.

Vitsœ’s headquarters are currently in London but are due to relocate to a purpose-built HQ in Royal Leamington Spa that will be a hub for the digital and physical worlds.
