Life with us
Over 46 million pairs of Clarks shoes are sold globally. That makes us a £1.5 billion business and a truly worldwide brand. We now have some 12,000 employees across 75 different countries - everywhere from Europe to the Americas. Despite being the world's leading global casual footwear brand, we're still majority owned by the Clark family and based in Street, Somerset - where the Clarks business began. Street is the nerve centre of our business, driving growth and the whole Clarks success story.
As well as development opportunities, pension and a competitive salary, you'll also enjoy a variety of benefits. These range from 25 days' holiday (plus bank holidays) to discounted healthcare. And, as everyone loves new shoes, you'll also get a very healthy discount on our products.
We love hearing from great people
