'Your work should be an act of love, not a marriage of convenience.' Haruki Murakami
Aesop has carefully cultivated a work environment in which our employees are constantly challenged to do their best. Our company is determinedly creative, intelligent and progressive, and nurtures these qualities by employing people who share our passionate interest in design, innovation, and incisive enquiry across all fields.
Just as the ingredients in our products are carefully selected for their unique characteristics, so too are the individuals chosen to work with us around the world – we seek those who can bring a wealth of life experience and inspired ideas to our table. In return, we offer flexible working conditions and conduct comprehensive induction and product training programs, ensuring all employees are thoroughly informed about Aesop products and the work that goes in to creating them – and thus confident in their ability to communicate what they learn to others.
Further, each new staff member is presented a complimentary product pack tailored to their skin type; and eligible for generous staff discounts. In addition to these incentives, we encourage our employees' external activities and interests, from study to artistic pursuits to volunteer work. And our organisational culture is entirely unique, distinguished by an uncommon blend of courtesy, cordiality and intellectual energy.
We raise our bar high at Aesop and never lower it; this is one of the keys to our success and one of the many reasons why people wish to work here. If you would like to join Aesop, we invite you to peruse our current career opportunities.
