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.



Some of our success stories:


Amy started out as a Customer Service Advisor and is now a Senior Buyer of DVDs & Blu-rays, board & card games, toys, and clothing, and is now responsible for over £5m in sales.

Mike from our Marketing Department started out in the Warehouse and is now responsible for the design of all product banners and graphic marketing across all web based platforms.

Our previous Apprentices Lucy & Wade have been fast tracked into roles with more responsibility and broader opportunities.

We have many more stories like these and we are on the constant lookout for talented, hard working people to join the team.

Who are we?

We are an online retailer of games, gadgets, toys and more, and we are growing rapidly into new territories. We offer a friendly working environment and a generous staff discount. We are based in Barlborough and we can be easily reached from the M1, making us an ideal location for candidates in Sheffield, Chesterfield, Rotherham and Derby.
