Vacancy details

Riccarton- Tower Junction

This vacancy is now closed



Who are we? We originate from the UK where we have a very strong market presence. New Zealand is a great territory for us with its beautiful green landscape, and we are aiming for our next goal of 20 Mountain Warehouse stores.

Animal was acquired by Mountain Warehouse and re-launched in the Summer of 2021, initially with an online presence only, before we moved to showcasing a range in some of our stores; we now have a handful of stores in the UK and are so excited to be opening our first store in Queenstown. The new Animal in-house design team have taken inspiration from Animal’s board sports heritage to create a range of authentic, trend-led, and eco-friendly products. Passionate about sustainability, we’ve added well-established sustainable material partners to our supply chain such as PrimaLoft®, ECOVERO™, and TENCEL™ Lyocell, as well as increasing the amount of Organic Cotton and recycled materials in our ranges. We have also partnered with reGAIN, who help divert product from landfill and contribute to a circular environmental retail model. 

  • Mountain Warehouse has 370+ stores globally and over 3000 employees; we are a leading outdoor retailer, with an always-evolving attitude.
  • International- we have Mountain Warehouse stores in Europe across Poland, Germany and Austria, across the pond in Canada and the USA, and our latest adventure is in New Zealand!
