Working for Superdry has never been so rewarding…

Superdry have been making world class product for 15 years, and we’re proud of it. Our mission is to inspire and engage the contemporary style obsessed consumer, whilst leaving a positive environmental legacy.

Together, we have built a brand that has cut through the global apparel market at record speed, taking market share from brands that have existed for decades. But we have a big opportunity ahead of us as we launch 4 new collections.

We are now on an exciting journey to reset our brand and return to our design-led roots and we are looking for talented people to join us on our journey.
