Ben & Jerry's was founded in 1978 in a renovated gas station in Burlington Vermont USA by childhood friends and dedicated activists Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield.
They had a burning desire to create a business that would not only be profitable but would also give back to the community in which they operated. Their aim is (& always has been!) to make the best possible ice cream in the nicest possible way.
The company was founded on the sustainable concept of linked prosperity and to this day strives to create impact for all communities they are involved with through Values Led Sourcing, reducing our environmental footprint and actively campaigning on issues of social and environmental justice with our fun and irreverent attitude. Our recent campaigns have been to restore the right to work for people seeking asylum in the UK, advocating for including tackling climate change in the French constitution and creating connections between locals and newcomers in Germany.
As Jerry always said 'if it's not fun why do it?'
We offer flexible working to our staff, including working from home or alternative locations during the week depending on your circumstances
Annual team retreats. A time to get to know each other away from the office.
We'll contribute towards books, training courses and conferences that help you learn and grow in your role here.
All employees get to take three tubs home a day. Whilst in the office you can eat as much ice cream as you can shake a scoop at.
Throughout the summer months all employees get Friday afternoons off
