Careers at Hobbs Sports

Join the best independent retail business in the country - and enjoy a refreshingly independent approach to your career.

Being part of Jarrold Retail is more than a little bit different to working at any other store.

 Hobbs Sports in Cambridge is part of the Jarrold Retail Group.

We are wholly independent meaning all the decisions about our stores - from what we sell to the events we host, are all made locally, not at a distant head office hundreds of miles away. By joining us you will become part of a team where your opinions and ideas matter - and can make a real difference to how we run our business.

A major employer in Norwich for more than 190 years, our sense of heritage remains strong and as you can imagine, excellent customer service is a long-held tradition at the very core of our business. However, as our ongoing investment programme and recent improvements to the stores demonstrate, we are a progressive and forward-thinking company with the aim of delivering the products and services our customers demand - now and in the future.

Hobbs are serious about sport. We have specialist departments for Cricket, Rugby, Hockey, Tennis and Running, as well as prestigious brands and look for staff who are passionate about sports with expertise in their own specific sporting fields. As well as the specialist sports, most other sports are catered for too - including fitness, swimming and football.

We are always looking for enthusiastic and talented individuals; by joining us you will become part of one the most well-known and best respected brands in East Anglia and enjoy the opportunity to build a satisfying career with many benefits.
