Jobs at Route One
Over the past decade Action Sports, which encompasses surf, skate, snow and BMX, has grown into a billion dollar industry. Predominantly associated with a young audience, it has an irreverent, urban culture, which segues into the worlds of fashion, footwear and music, its growth has been remorseless.
Given its youthful demographic and the specialist nature of each sport, it was inevitable that Action Sports retailing would migrate online. Route One specialises in skateboarding, snowboarding and inline skating and historically traded out of the high street. We launched our online business www.routeone.co.uk in 1998.
Over the past decade the online business has served over 500,000 customers and continues to experience exceptional growth. Our catalogue, which is published 8 times a year, is the bible for the skate industry and in 2009, Route One worked with Nike 6.0 to launch their first concept store in Edinburgh and Mpora to launch the Big Push.
In 2010, Route One celebrated “20 Years of Community Service” and hosted community projects from its stores in Edinburgh, Guildford, Brighton, Cardiff, Bath and Southampton.
We are always interested to hear from enthusiastic, creative and commercial individuals who share our passion for Action Sports and who want to be part of one of the most dynamic marketplaces in the world.
If you are interested in working for Route One please send your CV to: firstname.lastname@example.org – please note due to the amount of applications we get on a daily basis we cannot reply to everyone but we do endeavour to look at every single applicant.
