Our culture and benefits
Our team spirit is hard to beat. We are driven by our culture and work as one team across all our sites and locations.
We’re passionate about supporting and investing in our colleague’s growth and development, offering training as well as a range of wellbeing benefits, including a healthcare cashback and rewards plan.
Who are we?
Ramsden International is a wholesale exporter of British grocery brands, selling over 24,000 products to more than 650 customers in 133 countries worldwide!
We’re proud to be based in Grimsby, UK, with a large reprocessing facility in nearby Scunthorpe and international presence throughout the UK and across the globe.
Our team is a friendly bunch of individuals who are passionate about exporting - we’re hardworking, determined, and keen to learn. Our service-led culture inspires us to provide bespoke export solutions and work closely to build strong relationships with our customers.
Our open and approachable work culture means that we come together for a common goal – making British grocery brands available around the world.
What we do
“The world’s a big place and it’s getting smaller every day. That’s why we understand our customers’ individual markets and offer advice for many different businesses around the world, making us one of the biggest wholesale exporters of British grocery products in the UK.”
– Founder & CEO, Sean Ramsden MBE
Ramsden International’s mission is to make the UKs new, innovative, and bestselling grocery brands available to anyone, anywhere in the world.
Our business is dedicated to export and our customers range from small retailers to large distributors.
We help our customers grow with our diverse product range and our ‘customer first’ strategy, which has turned us from simply being an export wholesaler into an unmatched, value-added service provider.
We’re passionate about investing in our people’s growth as well as supporting their health and wellbeing. Here’s some of the benefits we offer while working with us.
Health & Wellbeing
Each employee receives their own Westfield Health plan, which a offers wide range of support, including health cover, gym discounts and professional medical advice with access to a 24-hour GP.
It’s important that we celebrate special occasions and achievements together, which is why we host several annual events for our colleagues, including those based internationally.
We recognise the significance of having a healthy work-life balance and have recently implemented a hybrid working week. All of our employees work from home on a Friday.
The usual bits
Work-life balance is important. That’s why we contribute to life insurance and a pension plan, 24 holidays per annum, plus bank holidays and additional days off for special birthdays and length of service.
In the office, you’ll find tea, coffee & milk, and every month we host a different themed “pay-day treat”. We have adjustable, standing desks with the option to have two screens and there’s also a shower on-site if you enjoy cycling or running to work!
Supporting local charity
We believe that supporting our local community is really important. We often hold office fundraisers, take part in charity days, and work closely with our charity partner, Making a Difference Locally, to donate to local charities which are chosen by our employees.
While working with us, you’ll receive rewards and special offers from 1,000+ leading online and high street retailers from our online provider
Rewards & recognition
We believe hard work should be rewarded and recognise individual achievements with our quarterly award, an annual awards ceremony, line manager recognitions and ‘give kudos’ programme. There’s also company initiatives such as an annual discretionary bonus scheme.
We’re an investor of people. You’ll have the choice to receive a personal development plan that is unique to your own goals with the opportunity to go on training workshops internally and externally.
