The Barbour brand is an internationally recognised name, sold in more than 40 countries. Turnover is growing and we employ over 550 staff. Barbour continues to evolve as a lifestyle brand while staying true to its heritage.
Everything we do here at Barbour is guided by the Barbour brand and our heritage. With the Barbour business growing so rapidly in recent years, this has resulted in the need to change and adapt to meet the challenges of today and the future. With this in mind, our management team with involvement from all departments in the business recently updated our Vision, Mission and Values (VMV’s).
It is important potential recruits understand our VMV’s as they influence how we manage, assess, reward and select our staff. If you can’t identify with them, you may not be the right “fit” for Barbour.
“By 2020 we will be recognised as the best British lifestyle brand worldwide.”
Our Vision is where we’re trying to get to as a brand and a business and shapes our decision making.
“To build a long term business honouring our Barbour family values and rich British Heritage, providing excellent quality products and world class customer service.”
This Mission sets out the ethos, principles and fundamental purpose of Barbour.
