Pavers has been trading for over 50 years and is a highly profitable family owned-and-run retail business with a strong balance sheet, over 170 retail locations, and a rapidly expanding digital presence. We also own the Jones Bootmaker and Herring Shoes footwear businesses, remain acquisitive, and employ over 1600 people. We were recently recognised by Best Companies as one of the UK’s Top 10 Retail Employers, are Carbon Neutral, have donated more than £1m to charity in the past 3 years, are currently applying for B Corp accreditation, and are imminently undertaking a significant expansion and modernisation of our Warehouse, Head Office, and Retail estates.
At Pavers we are passionate about providing comfort and happiness to our customers, and we make sure to employ people who are as passionate as we are. We always look for happy, confident, upbeat people, and we provide great jobs in a supportive family environment for them. We know that without our colleagues there is no business, and so the better we look after you, the better service you will provide our customers. We always try and do the right thing by our people and in 2021 were recognised at one of the Top 10 Retailers in the country by Best Companies.
We strive for diversity of thinking across the business and believe strongly in supporting our local communities. In 2018 we donated over £2.2m to establish the Pavers Foundation, with the specific purpose of providing grants for causes important to all our colleagues in the areas of health, education, and community. In terms of the environment, we are constantly seeking to reduce our impact. Since 2021 we have been fully carbon neutral, and we also have one of the largest solar arrays in the North-East of England on our warehouse generating clean energy. Because every year we give a percentage of our annual profits to our Foundation, our overarching aim is to be financially successful, but to achieve this in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
If this sounds like the kind of business you’d like to know more about, we’d love to hear from you – please apply today for the role of Customer Advisor. Bring a copy of your CV/cover letter into store.
The Pavers story began over 50 years ago in York. Founded by Catherine Paver, a mother to three boys, she had big dreams of changing the world of footwear and a passion to provide comfortable and stylish shoes to all. Cathy went to the bank for a business loan and was told it couldn’t be done. So, with her tenacious and determined spirit, Cathy returned, taking out a £200 loan for what they believed was for a sofa, and this is where Pavers Shoes was born.
Created from small beginnings, Pavers Shoes has grown to be a UK leader in today’s comfort footwear industry, continuing as an independent, family-run business. With almost 50 years of shoe-fitting knowledge behind us and an innovative spirit inherited by Cathy, our homegrown heritage and family values remain firmly at the core of everything that we do.
