Careers at Nikwax

Nikwax as an organisation

Nikwax operates within an organic team structure. The teams represent the key areas of the business and are made up of a group of people working towards achieving a set of aims. The aims have numerical targets, achievable through efficient day to day operation and the completion of longer term projects. The organisation divides up into four administrative areas co-ordinated by Commercial Management; each section is in turn divided up into teams. We have a flat rather than a hierarchical structure.

Nikwax provides a challenging environment for staff with opportunities spanning manufacturing, design, engineering, sales, marketing, service and support. Our business is growing and we constantly seek motivated individuals to join our successful teams.
