About Us

Home. There’s no place like it. And there’s no feeling like helping people create the joy of feeling truly at home.  

At Dunelm, that’s what we do. We’re the UK's number one choice for homewares because we make home life lovelier for our customers. And the caring and supportive culture we've created makes this a place you'll feel right at home too. 

You might not think it, but remaining the first choice for savvy homeware-shoppers involves some pretty advanced tech. We've recently made our whole company serverless, making us the largest user of AWS Lambdas in Europe (2nd in the world), and we’re bringing more and more tech into our stores. But that’s just the beginning. 

Join our Tech Team and you’ll not only be part of stimulating projects that are making an impact across our business, but you’ll be also somewhere you can build a long-term career that always promises to challenge and excite. 

Find your happy place.
