Action as employer in Europe

Action is Europe’s big retail hit. In almost 25 years we’ve grown from a small group of shops in the Dutch province of Noord-Holland, to the best and fastest-expanding retail chain in Europe. From a handful of stores to over 1100 stores in 7 countries (the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, Germany, France and Austria). And we’re adding more every day. We haven’t achieved this alone. Today, we have nearly 40,000 enthusiastic employees helping us build on our success. They expand their borders every day to ensure our clients are happy and satisfied.

Expand your borders at Action

You too can play a key part in our growth. Make the difference, whether you work in one of our stores, our distribution centres, or our offices. Somewhere in Europe or just around the corner. Rapid growth means Action is an organisation that is always on the move. Which gives you the opportunity to grow with us. Continually.

And it matters to us that you can. Our success depends on the people who work for us. So we support you wherever possible in expanding your own borders.

Our values

We have 6 values that are central to everything we do:

  • Customer focused
  • Cost-conscious
  • Teamwork
  • Discipline
  • Simplicity
  • Respect

These values are applied throughout Action in the same way. They are woven into our processes, internal as well as external. We consider them vital, and it is important to us that you feel comfortable with them. Read more about our values here.

Reward and personal development

We’re successful when you are, and we want to reward you for that. We offer appropriate pay and conditions for every job, based on our collective labour agreement. A competitive salary, a 34 to 38 hour working week, holiday pay, vacation days, arrangements for travel expenses, a pension, attractive prices in our staff restaurant, and a 15% staff reduction on purchases at an Action store. Plus you’re always the first to know about next week’s special offers.

On top of this we take a real interest in your personal growth and development, both on the job and through special, internal, training and education. Read more about how you can climb up our organisation. We also make a point of celebrating successes with cakes and other nice surprises, giving everyone an Action present at Christmas, and you’ll be invited to a big Action party every year. You and your colleagues can also organise a yearly team event.
