Careers

We are always on the lookout for talented people to join our team. If you would like to speculatively apply, please contact us through the contact page.

We would love to hear from you!

It is difficult to know what career path you want to take when you have no idea what the options are. Trying to fit into the standard job roles that friends and family suggest is difficult. At Xbite we just want good, hard working people who are willing to put their time and effort into progressing themselves and in turn the company. We look to place these people into the best role that suits their skills and interests. We have a long established record of investing in people; with over 80% of the key personnel in Xbite (Directors, Managers and Senior personnel) all promoted from lower roles.

Our success has been built on the foundation of creative and hardworking individuals, who have embraced our unique, forward thinking approach to business. After continued success and growth, we will be relocating our operation and logistics team to a bespoke purpose built warehouse in nearby Barlborough.
