Careers

Join the Team

I Dress Myself was established in 2005 and, within a year, we became the first screen printer to only use eco-friendly water based inks for all fabric and paper printing - sustainability has always been close to our heart.  We have expanded to include screen printing, Direct-to-Garment digital printing, eco-embroidery as well as relabelling and sustainable custom packaging.  I Dress Myself has a strong base of loyal customers, have been growing year on year and now supply large organisations such as Tate Enterprises and Katharine Hamnett.

We're a small team of highly motivated and hardworking individuals and every member of the team is encouraged to take responsibility for their area, show initiative and help us grow and develop.  On Friday afternoons we meet to talk through the week, finding solutions for any issues that arose and to encourage smooth operations.  On Fridays we finish early for a beer and sometimes a board game. On the last Friday of the month we buy lunch to say thank you and to celebrate the month.  Our core values are positivity, sustainability, passion and integrity.  We are committed to creating an inclusive workforce and aim to reflect and represent the diversity of the UK.  I Dress Myself is a member of the Living Wage Foundation.

I Dress Myself is big enough that we can take on exciting projects but small enough that everyone plays a role in shaping our future.

On this page, you will find the roles that we're currently looking to fill and we'd like to hear from anyone with relevant experience, ideas and enthusiasm.
