At Mothercare, we’ve been meeting the needs of expectant mothers, parents and their little ones since 1961. As a trusted one-stop shop for quality, choice and value, we’ve provided our customers with everything over the years, from bedding and clothing to prams, pushchairs and toys. You could well have been one of the millions of customers we’ve had the pleasure of serving in the past. Would you welcome the chance to be part of our future? Of course, Mothercare has grown up over the decades. While we’re still an iconic name on the UK high street, our operations have taken us into mail order, online shopping and overseas markets, with a presence in over 60 countries. We’ve also welcomed new names to our family, such as Early Learning Centre and mini club – a brand available exclusively in larger Boots stores, and collaborated with Mylene Klass and Jools Oliver to create iconic brands in Baby K and Little Bird. But some things have remained constant, like the values on which our business is built. We still care as we always have. We still make sure that we understand the needs of our customers. We still go out of our way to provide reassurance when our customers need it. We still make sure that everyone working here feels valued and has the opportunity to build a successful career. We have bold ambitions for the years ahead, which is why we’re always interested in meeting talented and motivated people who can deliver for our customers and help our business to grow.
