Join the RI Family

Join the Island

With an amazing history and an exciting future, everything we do is embedded in strong family values. We work collaboratively and cheer each other on, constantly driven to achieve a shared goal. We don’t take ourselves too seriously, but we know fashion can be better and do better. Our workplace is inclusive, energetic, and united where everyone is welcome! 

And it’s not just us that think so, our Islanders do too! We’ve recently been ranked as the UK’s 15th best big company to work for and the 10th best retailer to work for by Best Companies, based purely on employee feedback. Plus, our CEO Will Kernan has made the Top 50 CEOs in the UK in Glassdoor’s 2021 Employees’ Choice Awards, with a 94% approval rating from our Islanders. We are united as one team and achieving amazing things together.
We are one team. We are the difference. We are River Islanders.
