Ultimate Products is a fast paced, global company looking for enthusiastic second year uni students who are interested in an Industrial Placement in 2024. We are a multi–million-pound business who are recruiting for several roles across our E-Commerce department. We are seeking driven individuals who relish the opportunity to have trust and autonomy from the beginning. Over the course of the next 12 months, you will become an invaluable part of our team, not just doing the brew run, but also contributing to real life projects and gaining essential industry knowledge.

UP Story

From an initial spark of inspiration, we have achieved a variety of remarkable global successes. As the cogs of the retail machine, we design, manufacture, and distribute cutting – edge branded products to a broad market at competitive prices. Our family of brands feature Salter, Beldray and Progress. With an established legacy of quality and contemporary design, they have become iconic to generations, some that even your grandparents love.

Since 1997, Ultimate Products has been proudly providing the market with high-quality, branded kitchen and laundry products. Today, we are proud to stand as a public limited company with an annual turnover surpassing £165 million. We have built strong partnerships with globally renowned retailers, including Tesco, Asda and Primark, enabling us to stock and supply the shelves of the top leading stores across 38 countries. Despite our continuing expansion, Ultimate Products retains its foundational values of giving back: we are dedicated to supporting local charities and ventures to repay the community that helped us build our success.

Our people are essential to our successes, and we are pleased to create an atmosphere that encourages our colleagues to thrive both professionally and personally. This resulted in our recent investment into our brand – new office based at our Oldham Headquarters. We are committed to fostering a sense of community and inclusion through our newly established employee wellbeing and environmental committees, allowing our people to express their opinions and be heard.

At Ultimate Products, we understand the significance of taking time to refresh and re-energize, which is why we have added yoga and boxing classes to our wellness sessions! And a 3pm finish every Friday!
