Working for us

Because we’ve doubled in size over the last 5 years, we are currently recruiting for dedicated hardworking people that want to be a part of our success. 

Our people are the Allwag difference and one of the main reasons our clients are so loyal. 

On-going professional training equips our people with the skills they need to do their job. But we can’t train attitude. So when we recruit, we look for enthusiastic, committed people who share our values and understand that our clients always come first.

Our growth and success since we started in 1999 is the result of our constant innovation and great customer service, leading to repeat business and referrals. We build excellent relationships with clients based on trust and reliability. Working with clients rather than simply for them, we make sure we are their supplier of choice every time.

We feel that each role within Allwag Promotions offers the perfect opportunity for someone to make a real difference and achieve great job satisfaction as a result of their efforts. So if you enjoy a challenge, like being busy and are determined to meet customers’ needs, this could be perfect for you.

Our offices are in Hatfield Peverel - five minutes’ walk from the mainline train station. Our working hours are 8.30a.m.-5.30p.m. Monday to Friday.

Allwag Promotions is an Investors in People Gold status employer, so fantastic career opportunities, and full training and support are provided. We are proud to have been awarded 'Employer of the Year" 2017 by the British Promotional Merchandise Association.

Oh, and you must like cake and the odd lunch at The Blue Strawberry!
