Careers

We have always been innovators, with a history of introducing new kinds of clothes and developing our own unique fabrics.

Today we draw on our rich heritage to create clothes that are both timeless and modern. Sunspel has always been a peculiar combination of tradition and innovation.

The company is based in Long Eaton, near Nottingham, in the factory we have occupied for the best part of a century. We continue to draw on the traditional clothing techniques and expertise of the Nottingham area where the company was founded back in 1860. We also have offices in London, where the marketing, online and wholesale team reside.

We are always on the lookout for interested, knowledgeable individuals with a passion for craftsmanship and exceptional customer service. If you’d like to speculatively send through your CV, we’ll always consider you when a suitable position does become available.
