Are we perfect for you?

Nick and Louise started teapigs in November 2006 with a mission to get people drinking real tea again and to do things a little differently. They met whilst working for a big tea company, where they learned all about tea and drank loads of it. They soon came to realise that there was a whole world of quality teas out there that weren’t getting the attention they deserve. And so teapigs was born!

We’re committed to creating quality tea that’s accessible (without the pomp and ceremony!) is sustainable and gives back to tea growing communities. Simple, right!? 

Skip to today, and we’re the number 1 super premium tea brand in the UK - we were the first to bring whole leaf tea in a mesh bag to the market, and more recently the first tea brand to be certified plastic-free. We are a certified B Corp company & London Living Wage employer who believe that we can use our business for good. We have a range of 34 wonderful teas, a brilliant online community, a much-loved brand, and a fantastic team of teapigs. You’ll now find teapigs in over 44 countries across the world. We have big growth plans and are excited about the future!

You’ll get:

  • To work in a flexible, supportive & friendly working culture 
  • Starting salary of £24,000 and a performance-related yearly bonus
  • 25 days holiday plus bank and public holidays 
  • Summer hours! Early finish Fridays throughout summer 
  • Healthcare, free eye tests & enhanced pension scheme 
  • A cycle to work scheme
  • A monthly tea allowance
  • Online yoga and HIIT class every week 
  • Lots of support & personalised training to help you grow 
  • A dedicated 'team fun', who run regular teapigs socials!

Please note this role will be based from our ecommerce hub in Hanwell with the opportunity to work flexibly too.

We are excited to be building a diverse & inclusive business. As part of this, we are committed to equality of opportunity for all. We welcome & encourage applications from all candidates regardless of your ethnicity, race, sexual orientation, religion, age, gender, or disability status.
