Dorothy Perkins is full of passionate people who like to work hard and love what they do and we are always on the lookout for talented people who want to make a difference.

As well as our Retail and Digital channels, our International presence continues to grow with our Wholesale and Franchise partnerships - If you want to be part of our dynamic, global business.

Montague Burton opened our first store in 1904 and his cool head, warm hearted approach is key to our success. Handsome, uncomplicated, considered and friendly we are a man-thinking brand who put the customer at the heart of everything we do.

Burton Menswear is for the every man: our clothes come in sizes XS to XXL with dedicated Big & Tall and Muscle Fit ranges as well as specialist occasion collections such as 1904 and FōR.
