At Lush, we believe in providing local jobs (at a fair wage) to buying goods and services (at a fair price), paying our taxes, buying direct from smaller suppliers, giving to charities and speaking out for change on issues we care about in the world.
Joining Lush is a bit like joining an ecosystem of diverse ideas and people. We’re not structured in a traditional way, a lot of people don’t have an official job title and take on lots of roles, and that’s how we flourish. People progress via the connections they make. The more people you work with, collaborate with, support and are supported by, the more integral you become.
A few years ago we began to talk about mycelium as a way to describe how we are organised. Mycelium, for those who don’t know, is an underground network of fungi. Recently it has been discovered that they actually act as a ‘wood wide web’ for the forest – nature’s internet. A connected network of cooperation.
And it’s this pattern that we all recognised as being similar to how we work. In that way Lush is a family and it is a family who care for each other. We want each of us to succeed and to be able to enjoy the same benefits. Benefits such as a Living Wage, freedom of movement and a share in the business we all work so hard for. Really it has become the fungus among us…
Diversify our future
We are building a brand that represents the people of the world. It’s what you do that counts, and we are always looking to expand perspectives and voices to shape our future.
We see you, we celebrate you, we want you!
Who we are
You might know us as the inventors of the bath bomb, but there’s more to this great-smelling, privately-owned and family-run company than pioneering cosmetics. We believe our business should put more back into the world than it takes and demonstrate that capitalism can be a force for good. We fight cruel practices like animal testing, promote regeneration, and show that what’s inside counts – whether that’s an ingredient in a product, or the minerals in a smartphone.
What’s it like working for Lush
People are at the heart of our business. We want you to enjoy and challenge yourself, build a career, and teach us what we don’t know, so we’ve created a culture where your job description is a starting point, not an end goal. Our working style is flexible, fluid, supportive, and authentic – if you’ve got the drive to push yourself and try different things, you will have our support.
There are lots of different functions and types of work at Lush – from handmade manufacturing to retail roles, and every support job imaginable. Here’s a few of the benefits you can expect from working at Lush…
