Dixons, as they are known locally, is a family owned business. The late Joseph Dixon opened their first store in 1882 at 23 Queen Street in Whitehaven.
Today Dixons has a Department Store in Lowther Street, Whitehaven and a Home Store at Dunmail Park, Workington. They also operate two high quality and very popular cafes (The Roof Top Cafe in Whitehaven and The Terrace Cafe in Workington).
The business has a loyal and growing customer base and offers everything from the latest fashion, perfumes, gifts, art and crafts to home furniture, kitchenware and carpets. Customers can also enjoy a hearty meal or afternoon tea in one of the high end cafes.
If you are interested in a retail or catering career within a well established, yet modern and vibrant, local business then maybe you should consider a career with J Dixon & Son Limited.
Will working at Dixons suit me?
If you have exceptional customer service skills and enjoy working with people then this could be the perfect environment for you.
As with most retail and catering jobs, weekend and bank holiday working are a normal part of the working week so you should be happy to work at the weekend.
