Group Marketing supports and guides marketing for all of the companies.

Nikwax is a leading manufacturer of care products and material systems for outdoor clothing, footwear and equipment. Our highly-trained and dedicated staff develop and manufacture in-house, from our headquarters in the charming village of Wadhurst. As the only outdoor company to have won the Queen’s Award for Sustainable Development, Nikwax has an ongoing dedication to minimise impact on the environment and we have carbon balanced our operations since the company was founded in 1977.


Páramo Directional Clothing designs durable garments for outdoor people who want to stay comfortable in all weathers and environments. Also located in Wadhurst, our designers work with superior fabric systems and innovative designs to create garments that can be indefinitely renewed with Nikwax aftercare. Páramo has a partnership with the Miquelina Foundation in Bogotá, Colombia, where the garments are manufactured, all carrying the Fair Trade Label, by a skilled team of women, whom we have helped transition from exploitative situations and prostitution to find a better life for themselves.

We highly value our employees and this is an exciting opportunity to join our group as we evolve towards becoming employee owned; this will allow us to protect and build upon our purpose and values, whilst securing a bright future for the staff. We offer competitive rewards and a flexible working approach, with a balance of homeworking and office days, so you can enhance your work-life balance.
