Interested in joining James and James?

We don’t just look for people who can do the job. We look for go-getters who challenge the status quo, create change for the better and deliver real results.

That’s because we empower our people to step outside their comfort zone, think big and question the way things are done. It’s what’s made us one of the fastest-growing businesses in the UK.

Your time to shine

We put as much emphasis on hiring people with the right cultural fit, as we do the right skills and experience. So while we have traditional recruitment routes, we also love to receive applications in unusual ways.

If you want to stand out from the crowd and show us how unique you really are, we encourage you to apply in any way you like!

Our culture code

We challenge

We challenge the norm, explore new ideas, innovate and never settle for the way it’s always been done. We challenge ourselves with ambitious targets and achieve them through clear communication and open feedback.

We create

We think big and create processes and solutions that scale with us and our clients. We document and systemise tasks, but we never take our processes for granted – we question and evolve them for scale and competitive edge.

We deliver

We always work to exceed our promises, and go above and beyond to delight our clients and their customers. Above all, we make things happen with a can-do attitude and tireless pursuit of results.

Every day is different and that every day is an opportunity to learn more - about the world and yourself - and an opportunity to improve both.

James Founder and CEO

My typical day always starts with a coffee, but has a great mixture of talking to our clients or fulfilment centre members or my team. No day is the same which I love about my job.

Gina Client Services Team Leader

I’ve been out to America to search for a new fulfilment centre. It’s made me feel that I am needed and not just another employee – it was clear that my opinion and expertise do matter. I’ve always been fully supported to grow within the company.

Darren Operations Manager

My advice to new starters is, don't be scared. There is lots to take in and it can't happen overnight. Be patient with yourself and try things to understand how they work.

Steven Product Manager

Why you'll love working here

Working at James and James is unique and far from stuffy or corporate. You won’t find dusty policies, red tape, hierarchy or egos here. 

We’ve got a family-feel vibe going on, and our working environment is as vibrant as our infamous splash of lime (and pink, and aqua).

Professional development

We'll help you progress with personal development plans, training and innovation funds. You'll also be invited to our challenge-create-deliver events throughout the year. 


We take care of your wellbeing, with flexible hours, an additional day's holiday for each year served, and generous health and pension plans.

All the fun!

Seasonal parties, monthly team lunches, free tea, coffee, fruit and ice cream, and lots and lots of cake. It's never boring at James and James.

Where we've come from

...and where we're heading

James and James Fulfilment is born

When Messrs Hyde and Strachan couldn’t find a modern fulfilment solution for the eCommerce business they ran, they decided to build their own.

We disrupt an industry

We propelled logistics into the 21st century with agile best practice and cloud-based technology. As a result, we grew 300% year-on-year.

The Soil Association certifies us

In 2014, we became one of the first fulfilment centres in the world to be certified by the Soil Association. It enables us to handle a wide variety of organic products.

We expand our locations

Two years later, we moved our headquarters from Cambridge to a larger fulfilment centre in Northampton. We also opened our first US location in Columbus, Ohio.

The Fast Track 100 ranks us

We’re listed on a prestigious league table of Britain’s fastest-growing private companies (#83). This achievement follows a ranking among the European Inc. 5,000 in 2017.

We join the FT1000

We were then listed on the FT1000 – the Financial Times’ list of Europe’s fastest-growing companies – for the second year running, thanks to consistent revenue and team growth.

LDC invests £11 million in us

Shortly after our tenth birthday, we received our first outside investment – £11 million from private equity firm LDC, part of Lloyds Banking Group.

We win a second Queen’s Award

Having grown export sales 1,700% over five years, we won a second Queen’s Award for Enterprise – this time for International Trade, following a first for Innovation in 2016.

We join the Fast Track 100 for the second time

Securing our second Sunday Times Fast Track 100 ranking is a testament to our already-rapid growth trajectory. 2020’s special edition specifically highlights the important contribution that private companies have made to the UK during the Covid-19 pandemic.

We accelerate growth and move to our brand new, 600,000 sq ft fulfilment centre

We up-sticks and move to our brand new fulfilment centre which has an operational space six times the size of our current site on Brackmills, Northampton. A significant moment in unlocking the next phase of our growth.
