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 a strong base of loyal customers and have been growing year on year.  In 2018 we invested in new and efficient, automatic screen printing equipment to increase our capacity.  We also purchased high quality Direct-to-Garment printing machines, which means we can digitally print garments too - perfect for sampling, full colour designs and print on demand.  We now supply large organisations such as Tate Enterprises and the British Antarctic Survey.

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 in the future.  On Fridays we finish early for a beer and sometimes a board game and on the last Friday of the month we buy in a lunch so that we can celebrate the month.  We have regular appraisals to help understand and support employees and to encourage progression.  Our core values are positivity, sustainability, passion and integrity.  We are a member of the Living Wage Foundation.and we are 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.
