About Childrensalon Limited

Founded over 60 years ago, Childrensalon is one of the world's leading online destinations for luxury designer childrenswear.

The organisation has grown from a small family business into a global industry-leader. What has always stood out is the company's values and culture. Values such as: treat each other with respect, be proud to be different, believe in random acts of kindness, help those in need and finally, treat every customer as one of our family, have helped forge Childrensalon into a first class organisation and one that employees love to work for.

Allowing team members at Childrensalon to progress through the organisation is paramount. When an employee expresses interest in management, as well as when someone is identified as a strong performer, line managers work hard to help them achieve progression to the next level.

Childrensalon's most effective reward for employee effort has always been fast progression within the company. The organisation recently initiated a programme allowing training for people in one area to train in other areas, for example if someone in the picking and packing team wanted to learn to be a graphic designer, Childrensalon will sponsor their training and help them grow within the organisation.
