Two fantastic brands, double the opportunities

You don't need a giggling, gurgling bundle of joy or indeed a tiny terror to enjoy a career with two of the biggest brands on the high street. And now that Mothercare and Early Learning Centre have come together, not only can parents enjoy an even bigger and better choice of fantastic products but we've also got a superb array of opportunities for people from all kinds of different backgrounds, both in our stores and at our head offices. So, if you want to be part of a retailer that plans to grow faster than even our customers, join your expertise with ours and create something beautiful. See where you'll fit in...


At Mothercare, we sell everything a parent needs for their bundle of joy. But that doesn't mean you need to be a parent to work here. Since our birth 50 years ago, parents and parents-to-be have been flocking to our one-stop-stores to get advice and find the best quality and most innovative products for their little ones. With 5,000 people working in our stores and at our head office - and with exciting plans to continue growing both in the UK and overseas, there couldn't be a better time to come and join us.

Early Learning Centre

Every Early Learning Centre store is a kaleidoscope of colour, a treasure trove of toys that entertain and educate young children and help them to engage. But fun's a serious business; there is a huge network of stand alone Early Learning Centre stores in the UK and others within larger Mothercare stores (with more soon to open). Are you ready to play a part?

The opportunities

We have opportunities at various levels in both Mothercare and Early Learning Centre branches, from customer service assistants to store managers. Don't worry if parenting is a totally alien concept as our training will teach you everything you need to know. We also want people at our head offices, supporting every aspect of our stores and, ultimately, our customers. Buying & merchandising to product marketing, finance to IT, supply chain to retail operations, HR to property - there's a huge range of careers available.

And whether you're based in a store or at a head office, you'll get some really great benefits, like bonus or Sharesave schemes, pension, employee discounts and childcare vouchers.
