Work with us

It takes a particular kind of spirit to work in the PhotoBox group. It’s not for everyone. For a start, we’re a place for self starters and free thinkers. We thrive on each other’s passion for delivering amazing customer experiences, never standing still and constantly challenging the status quo. We look for new and better ways to consistently deliver results and wow customers.

We can be chaotic in our methods and while this is something we’re getting better at, the reality is when you join us, you won’t necessarily have clear structures and processes to guide you. We need people who can carve their own path and even work with others to show us the way. If you see this as the freedom to fly, read on.

What you will get from us is a whole heap of people who want to help you succeed. People who are passionate about seeing our business thrive. People who want to share what they know and what they’ve learned with you. You’ll get the chance to work on projects that are changing the experience for customers and colleagues, and everyone is welcome.

We’re at an exciting time in our evolution. We’re growing up but not growing old. We want people who can take us to the next level. People who have been there and done that, but who are up for doing things differently as well. In return we’ll invest all we can in making sure you get the best from our family of brands, because we do everything. This is a place where you can get your teeth into doing business differently. And enjoy it. Business might be serious, but we don’t have to take ourselves too seriously.

What You’ll Be Doing

This role is at the very heart of our business, and so are you!

Our customers are the most important thing to the PhotoBox Group - they’ll buy personalised photo products from you over the phone (photo books, wall art, personal memorabilia) asking for your advice and expertise when creating their special memory... you’ll deliver great customer service and sort out any minor ‘hiccups’ along the way.

You’ll help our customers create unforgettable memories & emotions that last a lifetime!

Are you ready!?

This is no mean feat, this role will be a great doorway to a fantastic career with PhotoBox if you’re passionate about delivering the best possible experience to your customers’ day in, day out. Not only that, you’ll understand that you also represent our best interests too and sometimes don your ‘negotiating cap’ to manage your customers’ expectations in a positive manner whilst achieving the right commercial result for PhotoBox.
