A diverse workplace where you feel a sense of belonging

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 more than 137,000 co-workers and operates in 30 countries, but we value working in a diverse and inclusive environment. Here you can always be yourself – in fact we actively encourage it!

At IKEA, we invite you to bring your whole self to work! We respect each other, our differences, and are curious and open-minded. So no matter where you work in the world, you’ll most likely rub shoulders with a diverse group of people – with different backgrounds, skills, and with positive attitudes.

We provide equal opportunities in recruitment and development to all people – regardless of age, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical ability, ethnicity, race, nationality, religion, or any other dimension of their identity. We believe that creating an inclusive workplace is everyone’s responsibility.
