Buying Admin Assistant

About Habitat

Since 1964, Habitat has been challenging the way people style and shop for their homes.

We’re an iconic homeware and furniture retailer that’s going through exciting times: our priority is a growing on line business that currently accounts for over 60% of the P&L plus three long-standing London flagship stores, and a network of smaller customer touch-points throughout the UK including Sainsbury’s and Argos.

For over 50 years Habitat has created good design that’s useful, distinctive and just a little witty. We recognise that today there are more brands than ever selling furniture, but we’re strong in our conviction that we’re true originals, because almost every piece in our collection is designed by us.
