Join Our House

Our Housemates are innovators who see the world differently and strive to make a difference within it. Each one is chosen and cherished for the skills, talents and characteristics that make them unique. 

In our House, we care for the wellbeing of our team; that is why we offer a more flexible approach to working and operate a four-day week over the summer period, and a 4pm finish in the winter.

As well as caring for our colleagues, we also care deeply about our eternal muse - Mother Nature. House of Hackney is proud to be certified as a B Corp™; a business that meets the highest verified standards of social and environmental performance, transparency and accountability, and we are partnered with the World Land Trust, the international conservation charity that safeguards our most vital natural ecosystems and threatened habitats, acre by acre.

From our London flagship St Micheal’s Clergy, based in the creative heart of the capital, to our New York showroom, our House is a place where imagination and collaboration can flourish – where everyone is accepted, all ideas are encouraged, and magic really does happen.

There may be no place like home…but in our House, there’s no place like work.
