A place where you belong

Working at the IKEA Group means that you are part of an inspiring, fun and fast-paced environment. We're the world's largest home furnishing retailer, with 155,000 co-workers and operations in 43 countries (figure for FY15), but we value working in a non-bureaucratic way. Here you can always be yourself. In fact, we actively encourage it!

At IKEA, we respect each other, our differences and are open to everyone making a contribution. So no matter where you work in the world, you'll most likely rub shoulders with a diverse group of people - with different backgrounds, special skills and a quirky sense of humour.
