Working with IKEA

A small but dedicated team of IKEA co-workers are now starting to work on introducing IKEA to New Zealand. Working for IKEA makes you part of a fast-paced family of people who enjoy exceptional career and learning possibilities.

Hundreds of co-workers will be needed across all areas of the store, including the furniture showroom, check-outs, sales, IKEA restaurant, children’s play areas and our warehouse, as well as positions in interior design, visual merchandising and management.

We won’t be recruiting immediately, however, we will use this page to advertise jobs, so stay tuned! In the meantime, follow us on LinkedIn.

We believe that every individual has something valuable to offer.

We’re a diverse group of down-to-earth, straightforward people with a passion for home furnishing. We come from all over the world, but we share an inspiring vision: “to create a better everyday life for the many people”. How we realise this vision is based on our shared humanistic values. These values guide our work and build our inclusive, open and honest culture. It’s all based on a spirit of togetherness and enthusiasm. We work hard, but we have fun doing it. We’re always looking for people who share our positive attitude and values.

IKEA Key values

We believe that every individual has something valuable to offer and we strive to have the same values in the way we work.


Togetherness

Togetherness is at the heart of the IKEA culture. We are strong when we trust each other, pull in the same direction and have fun together.


Caring for people and planet

We want to be a force for positive change. We have the possibility to make a significant and lasting impact – today and for the generations to come.


Cost-consciousness

As many people as possible should be able to afford a beautiful and functional home. We constantly challenge ourselves and others to make more from less without compromising on quality.


Simplicity

A simple, straightforward and down-to-earth way of being is part of our Småland heritage. It is about being ourselves and staying close to reality. We are informal, pragmatic and see bureaucracy as our biggest enemy.


Different with a meaning

IKEA is not like other companies and we don’t want to be. We like to question existing solutions, think in unconventional ways, experiment and dare to make mistakes – always for a good reason.


Give and take responsibility

We believe in empowering people. Giving and taking responsibility are ways to grow and develop as individuals. Trusting each other, being positive and forward-looking inspire everyone to contribute to development.


Lead by example

We see leadership as an action, not a position. We look for people’s values before competence and experience. People who ‘walk the talk’ and lead by example. It is about being our best self and bringing out the best in each other.


Renew and improve

We are constantly looking for new and better ways forward. Whatever we are doing today, we can do better tomorrow. Finding solutions to almost impossible challenges is part of our success and a source of inspiration to move on to the next challenge.
