About the role

Account Executive -  New York, NY

Joules is a British fashion and lifestyle brand that sells clothing, footwear, accessories and home products inspired by the British country lifestyle.

Over 25 years ago, Tom Joule began selling clothing and rain boots at outdoor events across Great Britain. He knew the countryside was full of character, it just wasn’t reflected in the clothing.  Tom’s first 100 pairs of bright, colorful rain boots sold out quickly, setting the benchmark for Joules style and since then Joules has become a unique, distinct lifestyle brand by successfully bringing to life the qualities we believe in.

Those qualities have enabled us to grow from a niche countryside event retailer to an international lifestyle brand, loved at home and abroad and known for ‘Time off’ and right now, that growth is creating exciting opportunities for more people to join us who share our colorful ambitions.

We are already a well-established and much loved British brand and have been expanding internationally over the last few years.  We already have over 400 wholesale doors in the USA, a number which is rapidly increasing.
