The secret to our success really is our people; it’s time to discover what The Dune Group can offer you
Dune London was born in 1992, beginning as a small concession store on London’s iconic Oxford Street. The dream was simple: to create an affordable luxury footwear and accessories brand.
Delivering that something special remains at the heart of our brand, and we’re thrilled you’re looking to join our team.
As our name suggests, we love London - it’s our home. As the epicentre of fashion with its vibrant, diverse and creative energy, it’s a city that constantly inspires us. We’re proud to say we now have over 200 store locations worldwide.

Our Brand Values
In the same way that we strive to find that perfectly fitting shoe for each of our customers, we are intent on building an inclusive, vibrant and innovative culture where difference is valued and everyone is welcome.
We work in an entrepreneurial culture of innovation and creativity; and we are always on the lookout for passionate people to join us. It’s not hard to love what you do when you work for The Dune Group. With great products, exciting growth plans, amazing customers and inspirational colleagues, everyone here always goes the extra mile in helping us achieve our business goals.
At the heart of the business, our brand values stand for everything we do and represent the upbeat environment that our people walk into every day.
We know our stuff. Not in an arrogant way, but we do. We pride ourselves on being among the best in the industry and this inner confidence is stitched into the fabric of our operation. It permeates throughout our teams to our customers, so it’s not surprising that they trust us to take care of their shoes and accessories.
Fashion fuels our individuality. Evolving with this ever-changing tide we curate trends and interpret them in the Dune London way. We believe style goes beyond how you look and has the power to make you feel special. Style is timeless which is why our signature doesn’t just lie in our designs, it’s in the confidence it brings to our customers when they wear our products.
We truly love what we do. Above all, we understand the transformative power of shoes. The thrill of finding the right style that changes the way you walk, and the way you behave and feel, inspires us every day. Whether its browsing one of our stores or exploring our website we strive to make sure our customers feel this passion at every point of their journey with us.
Across our organisation we are making important changes to incorporate sustainable practices whilst recognising our ambition to do more. We are rising to the challenge and finding new solutions for packaging, materials, waste reduction and reducing our energy consumption. We are establishing more transparent working practices and, alongside our partners and suppliers, reducing our environmental impact.
We are passionate about the development of our people and we want to help you grow and succeed. We invest in you from the get-go, allowing you to learn, develop and succeed from day one. Your induction, in-store training and ongoing training opportunities will immerse you into the world of Dune London, we’ll make sure you’re settled into your role in no time!
We are not an ‘off the shelf’ type of business so our development offering is pretty unique.

Our Head Office
Our brand new sustainable central support office (CSO) is based in The White Building, part of Notting Dale Estate. Located a few minutes from Latimer Road Underground station (Hammersmith & City Line) and a 10 minute walk from Shepherds Bush transport interchange (Central and Hammersmith & City Lines, and London Overground rail services). Westfield Shopping Centre is on our door step and we are a short walk from the bars and cafes in Notting Hill. We offer blended working, spreading your time across our office and remote working.
CSO is home to our in-house Design team, Buying & Merchandising, Marketing, Ecommerce, International, Wholesale and Franchise functions. ‘CSO’ is a fast-paced and entrepreneurial environment where no two days are the same. All our teams live and breathe our core values and each contribute collaboratively to the brand’s success.
From our welcoming reception to our inspiring showrooms, we encourage a sense of fun and an imaginative and creative working environment where no two days are the same. There are various social events that take place throughout the year for all our teams to relax and spend time together outside of the office. These include our annual Christmas Party, Summer Party and team Away Days.
Our Distribution Centre
Our Distribution Centre, which is based in Leicester, is home to our Warehouse and Customer Experience teams. Their roles are to ensure customers receive their orders on time and our product is delivered to stores, all while delivering exceptional customer service around the globe. The teams are close-knit and often run their own incentives such as collecting and delivering goods for the ‘Goods for Good’ charity which sends anything from shoes to nappies and blankets to countries where there is hardship and shortages of the basics.
Our Stores and Concessions
We are proud to have over 100 stores (including full price, outlet and concessions within leading department stores including John Lewis, Selfridges and Fenwicks). We continue to open new stores in key locations. Our passionate retail teams lie at the heart of the business, entrusted to deliver the Dune experience and exceed customers’ expectations in service and in-store experience. We shout about and celebrate our people and love to promote internally.
