People are at the heart of everything we do at John Cotton Group.

Steven Duncan Purchasing Director and Group Sustainability Lead

I'm delighted to work for a family-owned business that puts the customer and sustainability at the heart of its decision making. Sustainability is built into the DNA of our business and we are pioneering new technologies and ways of working that will continue to reduce our impact on the Environment now and for future generations to come

Kora Habinakova Channel Manager Marketplaces

Being part of the Ecommerce Division (ECD) team feels like being part of a family – everyone is really lovely and supportive, all chipping in when help is needed – even packing orders in the warehouse during the busy periods. I thoroughly enjoy my role as the Channel Manager – Marketplaces at John Cotton Group. The scope allows me to work across multiple accounts – from Debenhams, Next and Wayfair, to our own branded sites of Sleepseeker, Slumberdown, EarthKind and soon Snuggledown.

I have so many memories! It’s been a wonderful 25 years since I first joined John Cotton Group. This place seems like a family and we have bonded, and I hope it continues until I retire. There aren’t many firms out there nowadays where you can last 25 years!
