Careers at Mint Velvet

Our Story

The Mint Velvet story began in 2009 with three women who, inspired by a desire for something new, wanted to create a collection which had a luxe everyday feel to it, without the matching price tag. All working mothers with modern lifestyles, they wanted to create a collection which enabled them to look effortlessly stylish, even on the busiest of days. The relaxed glamour concept was born.

Mint Velvet is a multi-channel retailer serving our customers through the web, boutiques and concessions in leading department stores. We have an obsession with providing a fantastic shopping experience for our customers and as a result we are always looking out for the best talent in retail.

If you would like to work for our vibrant and fast-growing business, then take a look at the positions below. We offer competitive salaries, significant staff discount and a generous bonus scheme.

Retail Opportunities

Our smaller stores offer a perfect first time management opportunity, whilst the standalone boutiques offer an exciting challenge for someone with more experience. Our simplistic philosophy means all the focus is on our customer, and on creating a gorgeous environment for her to shop in.

Internships & Work Experience

We offer a very limited number of year-long student placements at Mint Velvet and recruit for these jobs every Autumn. They're aimed at people who are doing sandwich courses with a year in industry and we are delighted to work with a number of universities to place interns: Westminster College and Manchester Met.

We currently have no placements available

Sadly, outside of these placements, we're not able to offer regular internships or work experience at Mint Velvet. If there’s nothing here for you at the moment, please don’t give up! If you’ve come this far, we’re sure you’d be someone we’d like to talk to and we update this page as soon as we start searching for new people, so please do check back here again.

Applications

To apply for a role, please complete the application form and either email to careers@mintvelvet.co.uk or take the completed form into your local store.

DOWNLOAD THE APPLICATION FORM

Regrettably, due to the high volume of applications we receive we are only able to respond to successful candidates who have been shortlisted for an interview.

At Mint Velvet we always recruit our staff directly and are successful in doing so. We therefore do not need to use the services of recruitment agencies. We ask that you do not contact any of the Managers or HR Team in order to introduce your services. We do appreciate the interest you have in our company and thank you for your understanding.
