Do you want to learn new things and are you not afraid to make mistakes? Are you looking for a strong international company with an informal working environment and possibilities to grow? Start your career in IKEA.


IKEA for young people

Each IKEA career is different. We do not distinguish people regarding the age, sex or nationality. Your degree and education level are only input data for us. Much more important is if you share our values, if you want to work with colleagues and on yourself.

Different part time jobs

We actually do not have summer jobs in IKEA. Every job is important for IKEA operations and we perceive each co-worker as an equal team member regardless of whether they work with us for a short period or only part-time. We like long-term relationships and that’s why students often develop their career in IKEA after they graduate.

National or international career

Graduates have countless job opportunities in IKEA. It depends on you what you choose according to what you are interested in and which direction you want to take.

We know that beginnings might be sometimes hard. That’s why new co-workers get full support from their colleagues and managers so as they feel good at work and learn everything needed for fulfilling their goals soon. In return we gain new views or fresh ideas from young colleagues.

IKEA is present all around the world so it is quite common that our colleagues work successfully in foreign IKEA units and also directly in the country of its origin – Sweden.

How Standa started at IKEA? Watch the video!

Standa started at IKEA as a marketing intern. He admits that he was apprehensive at first because it was his first job in a big company. He was sometimes not sure how to actually talk to his colleagues and how to behave properly. What is professional and what is not. At IKEA, however, he soon discovered that we were all open to each other and he felt that the others accepted him into the team and respected him, even though he was often younger and less experienced than the others.

Current vacancies also suitable for students and graduates

IKEA was selected as the TOP employer in the Czech Republic again

IKEA Czech Republic defended its title from last year and was voted the TOP employer in the Retail and e-commerce category.

IKEA Recruitment Selection & Onboarding Leader Ladislav Onderka represented our company during the Award ceremony. He said: „The TOP employer award in the Retail and e-commerce category is very precious for us. We highly appreciate that university students perceive us as a good employer especially in this time when there are more job offers than job demands on the market.

That is also the reason why we’ve prepared a brand new program for graduates. We want to facilitate the start of their career path.” You can find more in a new Almanac of TOP employers 2021.

How does our graduate Jakub see it?

„For various reasons, I left university early and needed to find a job before I start going to another school again. By then I had been to IKEA about twice. I sent out my resume to the widest range of job sectors and IKEA’s attitude was just great, they got back to me quickly, the interview was interesting and the employee discount sounded great. It was my first „adult“ job and I just really liked the Swedish style.

I started part-time as a cashier, the original plan was to last half a year before going back to school. After a year and a half, I transferred to the kitchen accessories department as a salesperson, where I worked for a year. When I was in my third, final year of school, I needed more time to study, so I switched to replenishment and worked there for another year. Since the beginning of the covid pandemic, I have been picking goods for the Click and Collect service, about three quarters of the year. Then I anchored in the Circular hub department, where I have been working for more than a year, now as the second quality engineer. I would like to become a team leader in this department in the near future.”
