Careers at Penneys

Careers at Penneys

There are three career paths within Penneys: Retail Management/ Retail Assistants, Buying, Merchandising and Head Office. Penneys might be a value retailer but we have high-calibre staff working for us. We need people with the right skills and attitude who are happy to work hard and contribute to our success and theirs. Whatever path you choose, you'll be working in an exciting, forward-looking company with a great future. 

Fashion and Product

We have two ‘buying offices’ – in Dublin and Reading – where we have incredible teams of Buyers, Merchandisers and Technologists who work together to fill our stores with the amazing products our customers adore.  

We look for people who are creative, passionate about fast fashion and have what it takes to turn ideas into commercial successes and deliver value to our customers. We hire people at all levels – from Trainees to highly experienced professionals – and provide the training and development that people need to be superstars!

Retail Stores

Who isn’t addicted to the hustle and bustle of a busy Penneys store! Our customers love it! But they also want to be able to find what they’re looking for, and be tempted by what they weren’t. They want to try their stuff on quickly and pay when they’re finally ready to go home, feeling good!

Working in our stores isn’t for the faint hearted! You have to be positive, resilient and genuinely willing to ensure our customers have a great experience every time. We recruit at all levels – from Retail Assistant straight out of school or returning to work, through to Store Management. Penneys stores are unique and we need the very best people running them.

We currently have stores in Ireland, UK, Spain, Portugal, Germany, Netherlands, Austria and Belgium, and we open in France in the not too distant future. Check out the New Store section to see where we’ll be opening next!

Head Office

Our Head Office functions are based between Dublin and Reading and include all of the usual support functions you would expect in a business of our size. This includes HR, Finance and IT, but we also have fantastic jobs in Ethical Trading (many of these field based), Retail Support – like store development or visual merchandising, Procurement and Supply Chain.

We look for people to work in our Head Office functions who are commercial and who get things done.
