From rock fashion and band merchandise through to posters and wall art - There’s never a dull day in the Grindstore offices.
The top 3 reasons you’ll love working at Grindstore (according to our team):
1. Relaxed, friendly atmosphere. You’ll be expected to work hard but have fun at the same time. We are a relatively small company (less than 30 employees) with a real ‘family’ feel - our team often attend gigs and festivals together and that friendship translates to a happy working environment. We also have a casual dress code throughout our offices.
2. Variety of work. Grindstore is best known for leading the way in rock fashion and band merchandise, but we also sell posters, wall art, calendars, gifts, and more. You’ll be expected to get involved with all our brands and websites - meaning no two days are ever the same.
3. The product range. We sell some of the most innovative products around. Whether it be funny, fashionable, or offensive (often all three!), the products we sell inspire our team, whilst our team also inspire our products. Being surrounded by innovative products, helps you to unlock your inner creativity.
Unique products. Unique team.
Contrary to what you might expect, we’re not all metal-heads that spend our weekends rocking out in mosh pits. The rock fans in the team are joined by fans of all genres of music - even classical!
Regardless of individual tastes, we’re all united in one goal - to make Grindstore the biggest online retailer for cool and innovative products and band merchandise.
That said, we do regularly listen to Kerrang radio in the office. It helps to keep us on the pulse of our target demographics. It’s also one of the reasons we have such a lively, fun-loving office environment.
Help the company grow. Reap the rewards.
We’re big believers in rewarding good performance. As the company grows, you’ll grow too. In fact, several members of the team have been with us virtually from day one and have now progressed into senior roles within the company.
And it’s not just career progression we offer. As the company becomes more profitable, we pass on the benefits to the people who helped us grow. This means you’ll get regular pay reviews. Knowing your salary is proportional to the company's growth, means everyone is working together towards the same common goal.
We invest in your future.
We don’t expect our staff to be experts in everything. However, we do expect you to want to develop within your role, learn new skills and take on new responsibilities.
You won’t be left to do this on your own, though. We pride ourselves in supporting you to become better at what you do. You’ll be given the chance to attend training courses, seminars and conferences to make contacts and develop your skill-set.
For example, we recently sent members of the team on a social media training course. They came back full of ideas and are now putting what they learned into practice. They’ll become more employable as a result and we’ll grow as a business. It’s a real win-win.
Work hard. Play hard.
One of the things that really sets us apart from your typical employer is that we know how to socialise and have fun (we even have a dedicated games room in the office!).
Maybe it’s because of the industry we work in, or maybe it’s because we attract some of the most likeable people in the country - our social events are legendary!
We also do a mean BBQ and we know all the best pubs and clubs that nearby Norwich has to offer. Put simply, we may be located in a beautiful and tranquil part of Norfolk - but if it’s something a bit more wild and exciting you’re looking for, we have you covered.
Wild products. Peaceful surroundings.
One of the things that surprises new visitors to Grindstore the most, is the beautiful surroundings that somehow don’t quite fit the edgy, wild image of our brand.
It’s true, we can’t deny it. But we wouldn’t have it any other way.
We might sell loud and lively products, but we do so in a very friendly and relaxed way. In fact, the relaxed office environment is one of our biggest strengths and we like to think that the calm and safe surroundings contribute to that.
We’re based in a market town called Holt, which is around 45 minutes from the thriving city of Norwich.
Only 13 minutes from the beach!
The location of Holt within Norfolk couldn’t be much better. The nearest beach is just 13 minutes away - perfect for those hot and lazy summer days.
When you want to get away from it all, Holt is just 35 minutes from Norwich International Airport where holiday destinations include party places such as Ibiza, Majorca, Tenerife, and Amsterdam. There’s also daily domestic flights to vibrant cities such as Manchester and Edinburgh.
This means that working for Grindstore gives you the best of both worlds. A fun lively working environment with a safe and chilled home life - still within easy reach of activities for the more adventurous days!
