Why Action?

Good question. Because there are various companies that can offer you a fun job or a good career. Action is all about simplicity, we do not make things more difficult than they are. So, here are three good reasons to join us:

1. Work for a winner

This may sound a bit lacking in modesty. But we didn’t make this up: our customers voted Action Retailer of the Year Europe for three consecutive years and in the Netherlands we have been named Best Chain of Stores for five times. In addition, we won in various categories in France, Belgium and Germany. We must be doing something right?!

2. Action grows, you grow

We like to honour our name. We are very ambitious, full of energy and get things done. We opened 230 new stores in seven different countries in 2018. Plus, we renovated 48 stores and built two completely new distribution centres. But we also created more than 5,000 new jobs and facilitated hundreds of colleagues in their next step. Growth offers opportunities, that includes you.

3. Improving at what you do

Action doesn’t only invest in new stores. Our Action Academy offers the opportunity to enter into courses that are tailored to your role. The offering is huge; from a course in safety at work to complete managerial training courses. Over the past year, over 40% was even aimed at developing the soft skills of our employees. Which makes sense to us: if you get better at your job, so do we.
