The Very Group Icon


There’s a real sense of teamwork and community here in the tech team. A feeling that we’re all building something better, together. We're a diverse team, we leave egos at the door, we support each other to try new ways of doing things.

Growing, together

The scale of the technology challenge in working with commercetools, AWS, Teradata and more, means we’re on track to drastically improve our digital shopping experience over the next three years. We need people to come in, try new things, break and build them again to get us there. It won't be straight forward, but we promise it will be rewarding.

Feel well, work well

Our hybrid working model is here to stay. You’ll enjoy the flexibility of making the working week work for you. Plus, without the commute you’ll have time back to focus on what matters to you.

Make good things happen

This is a place where you can have an impact - you can build products that are used by millions of people every day, so you can really test yourself at scale.

At Very, we’re committed to ensuring that every colleague, customer and member of our community feels welcomed, represented and valued for the magic of their uniqueness.

We’ve been passionate about diversity and inclusion for a long time. For 100 years, we’ve been making good things easily accessible to more people, so they can live life well. That means helping our colleagues, customers and the communities we work with – feel like they belong, are represented and valued for the magic of their uniqueness.

We recently took a deeper look at how we’re doing. And we need to take more action in some places. Through co-creation sessions with our colleague-led networks, diversity and inclusion sponsors, retail, corporate social responsibility, and people leadership teams, we’ve set out our bold ambition and the commitments we can all stand behind. Find out more about our plans here.
