Careers

Building teams

A company is a group of individuals who share a common belief in what they are aiming to achieve. The success of the company is therefore down to the people that form these teams and their ability to realise their goals and ambitions.
As such English Braids run an open approach to recruitment, always welcoming approaches for roles that either do or do not currently exist within the business.
