For me, the best thing about working here is the people
Working here - Professional Services
Supporting the business
Our head office teams are at the heart of our business, supporting all our operations and offering an amazing range of career opportunities.
You could build a rewarding future and move up the career ladder in one area, or build your expertise across a range of different teams – it really is up to you. And with our flexible approach to work, you could be based in one of our modern offices, or split your time between an office and your choice of location – whatever helps you to perform at your best.
Our Professional Services teams
Our commercial teams enable us to get the best products to the right people at the right time. So, there’s a variety of opportunities for you to build a successful career. In Supply Chain, you’ll be a mover and shaker, ensuring we get products to our customers quickly and effectively. In Product Development, you could be creating the next must-have products. Or you might work with our advanced operations in Australia, China and India, helping to bring new, innovative solutions to market. Whatever your role, you’ll help keep Nisbets at the forefront of our industry.
We ensure that Nisbets has healthy finances and the right controls, so the business continues to thrive. Join our Financial Accounting team and you’ll ensure we meet all statutory requirements, while in Management Accounting, you’ll be supporting effective business planning and forecasting. Or you could help to keep our day-to-day finances running smoothly, in invoice processing, credit control, cashflow management, or managing our bank balances.
Whatever team you join, you’ll find a variety of exciting career opportunities, with all the training and support you need to be successful, and possibly to gain a recognised accounting qualification, if this is what you chose.
Join our people team and you’ll play a key role in helping all our people to be the best they can be. We have ambitious growth plans, so we need an adaptable people strategy that responds to changes in trends, legislation and HR best practice, as well as business needs. From recruitment and payroll, to learning and development and employee relations, we’re enabling the business to grow and develop. So you’ll find an exciting environment, where there are always new challenges, as you help to evolve our people agenda.
Technology and Business Change
Sitting at the heart of a 24/7 business, our IT teams develop ambitious strategies and provide high quality support to keep Nisbets running smoothly. So we’re always on the lookout for talented Developers, experienced support staff, Project Managers, Business Analysts and Network Administrators.
It’s high profile, varied and challenging work. Whether we’re providing a seamless digital experience for an external customer or developing a hassle-free order-entry experience for our sales teams, the customer’s at the centre of it all. This means we have to be innovative but professional, detail-focused but continuously improving.
Nisbets is a great place to start your legal career. As a Legal Advocate, you’ll be helping to develop our compliance and governance frameworks, so we always comply with our legal obligations. We’ll also give you all the support you need to take either the CILEX route or the Solicitors Qualifying Exams. Once you’ve qualified, you’ll become a Legal Counsel, which opens up lots of doors to a range of work, such as mergers and acquisitions or commercial contracts.

Meet some of our people
Conrad Hunneman, MD of Nisbets Continental Europe
At Nisbets we’re on an exciting journey, with lots of growth opportunities. I really enjoy being able to play my part. We have great people working here, people that want to make a difference and to make Nisbets become customers’ first choice by helping them to do great things. During my job interview, I met a few of the leadership team and they made me feel part of the Nisbets family even before I officially started. That’s when I realised that this was a great company to join and I was right.
Meet some of our people
Nicola Ransome, Senior Group Category Manager
After moving out of London and leaving the fashion industry, I was looking for something to match my skills. Nisbets were looking for a Clothing and Footwear Buyer, which seemed fairly suitable. Since I joined, the commercial team’s changed a lot, but there’s always been a real sense of teamwork. In buying it’s really important to have a strong and supportive team to get the job done. Nisbets is an ambitious company that’s constantly changing, so there are always challenges. You never know what will happen next and you learn something new every day.
