Out of Eden is an independent hospitality supplies business founded by Ian and Janet Hartley in 1993, who themselves have extensive experience in hotels and catering, including running hospitality businesses of their own. Our family-owned business is today led by a senior management team who, along with growing the business to become one of the leading hotel suppliers in the UK, ensure that core principles upon which the business was founded are upheld, including looking after our people, nurturing their careers, and helping them develop personally to realise their full potential.
Our people continue to be the foundation for the growth and success of Out of Eden, and we will always aim to provide rewarding employment opportunities across the business, in pleasant working environments, and with colleagues who are friendly and supportive.
Employment at Out of Eden presents a wide range of roles and responsibilities across our various areas of operations:
Directors, Senior Management, Team Leaders & Coordinators
Marketing, Purchasing, Buying, Accounts, HR & IT
Customer Services, Business Relationship Team & Stores
Logistics, Order Fulfilment, Stock Management & Despatch
Your career with Out of Eden can be as diverse and rewarding as you want it to be - we will always welcome people who seek to develop themselves personally as, together, this also supports the ambitions of our business.
The training provided when you commence your employment is just the start, and we are committed to investing in you and your skills throughout your time with us.
We are proud to say that a high percentage of our employees have been with Out of Eden for many years, and it’s not uncommon for them to have worked across a variety of roles and teams within the business.
For example, we have team members who joined our customer services team but have since qualified as accountants or realised their creative ambitions with our marketing team.
As a values-led organisation our aim is to be an ethical, helpful and profitable company by valuing our customers, nurturing our team and by being involved in the local, national and global community.
More than mere words, we put these values into practice every day. Out of Eden will never be a profits-driven business, and we prefer to provide high quality products at a fair price to our customers, sourced as ethically and sustainably as possible, with the impact on the environment always a consideration.
This also extends to people, both our own employees and the welfare of those employed by our suppliers.
