About: Figleaves leads the world of intimate apparel e-tailers with the largest online collection of lingerie. We employ over 200 people, shipping lingerie, swimwear and much more to over 100 countries. Our Head Office is based in Welwyn Garden City and our Customer Services and Warehouse Operations Centre is in Suffolk.

In 2009 figleaves.com was named as one of Glamour magazine's top 50 companies to work for, and rather than just gloat about it we thought we'd tell you why and ask you to join in! No dress code, generous staff discount and benefits, plus plenty of holiday time create a relaxed atmosphere with plenty of lunchtime shopping! But these are just the perks...

Once we've wolfed down our free breakfast and chatted about the social committee's latest event, it's down to business. As a small company, each and every staff member is involved with growing the business, meaning that ideas are free flowing and always welcome.
