Working for Joe Browns

Joe Browns is a true lifestyle company, which was started in 1998 to offer something more exciting and more individual than the other clothing catalogues in the UK.

We offer stylish, laid back clothing for men and women plus original gifts and accessories that won’t be found on the High Street. Our ethos is that life should be about living for the moment, getting out there and enjoying yourself - and our clothes reflect that.

We’re based in Leeds, West Yorkshire, where our head office, customer service department and warehouse are all under one roof. Located in a converted warehouse, our offices are as fun and quirky as the clothes we sell!
