Working at Alex Monroe

At Alex Monroe we design, manufacture and sell beautiful jewellery. We’re really all about people. We have a wonderful bunch of people working here, and a wonderful lot of customers too!

Everything is handmade right here in the UK by skilled craftspeople, from our fantastic newly built workshops in the heart of London. Our purpose built flagship store in London Bridge also houses our Bespoke department and our Sales and PR team.

It’s a fun place to work, very exciting and ever growing. Often fast paced and very busy. We all love what we do and that is reflected in our work ethic. We take our work seriously but have fun while we do it.

We value diversity, creativity, and individuality. To work here it’s a great help if you’re an energetic, flexible, and are generally a yes-can-do kind of a person.

Because it’s such a fun place to work jobs don’t come available very often. But when we find a real star we do everything we can to keep them. So watch this space and we’ll keep you informed of any changes!

Many thanks,

Alex Monroe (Founder and Creative director)

The Role

Alex Monroe jewellery always tells a story, and should be presented in such a way to reflect this, allowing customers to fall in love with new pieces, and be excited by discovering details.
