Established in 1981 with a single store in the North West of England, the JD Group is a leading global omnichannel retailer of Sports, Fashion and Outdoor brands. The Group now has approximately 3,400 stores across 32 territories, with a strong presence in the UK, Europe, North America and Asia Pacific.
Our people are integral to our success and are the heartbeat of our business. They deliver on a daily basis to enable the JD Group to meet and exceed expectations. We currently have more than 60,000 colleagues within our business. Our aim is to attract, develop and engage committed and talented people so that they choose to grow with the Group throughout their careers.
As our business continues to expand globally, we continue to search for driven and talented individuals who love what they do and are passionate about taking the next step in their career.
We respect each member of our team and everyone is encouraged to put forward their ideas, regardless of how big or small, as dynamic thinking is what drives this business to be competitive. Our brand ethos is all about innovation, creativity and competitiveness and therefore, we love to hear from people who share those values.
We inspire our people to reach for the highest levels of performance. All employees are highly skilled, self-motivated and in constant pursuit of perfection when delivering business objectives. Opportunities to progress arise quickly for those people with the right qualities and ambition.
We encourage our people to constantly seek ways to improve our performance. This means challenging the way in which we merchandise, sell product and manage the business and being forward-thinking in suggesting logical yet unique solutions. Problems are solved and opportunities seized by people working together from all levels of the organisation.
