Elk has cultivated a work environment in which our employees are constantly challenged to do their best. Through a creative approach, Elk has created a strong brand identity, and we nurture this quality in others by employing people who share our keen interest in design, our love of nature and simplicity and our commitment to ethical and sustainable business. Just as each piece in our range is carefully created; we seek out individuals to work at Elk who can bring their own life experience and inspired ideas to our company.

In return, Elk offers a unique workplace and conducts induction and product training. We encourage our employees to integrate Elk product into their lives outside of work through offering product discounts. Staff members are informed about Elk products – from the design process, through the materials used-to craftsmanship and traditional skills utilised in making them– and are confident communicating about Elk to others.

Elk supports employees' involvement in activities outside of work, whether it be to study, artistic pursuits or volunteer work.
