Why work at Ideal Shopping Direct?

Ideal Shopping Direct Limited is one of the largest TV Home Shopping Channels in the UK. Our head office and state-of-the art TV studios are based in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire. Television shopping brings together the media and retail industries in an exclusive way, allowing people to pursue careers as diverse as lighting engineer, buyer or logistics manager. The excitement of live television infuses the atmosphere at Ideal: we are proud of what we achieve, but we have fun along the way.

We currently broadcast four channels – Ideal World, Create and Craft, Ideal Extra and Ideal & More – on Freeview, Sky, Virgin and Freesat. Broadcasting live for 17 hours a day, we offer a huge variety of shows and products. We also operate five transactional websites – www.idealworld.tv, www.createandcraft.tv, www.createandcraft.com, www.deramores.com, sew.co.uk and www.cakecrafting.co.uk – which allow our customers to purchase online, 24 hours a day.

Our 500-strong teams of professionals specialise in buying unique products, producing live and pre-recorded shows, operating our websites, marketing to our 3 million customer database and so much more, all of which makes Ideal Shopping Direct Limited an exciting and invigorating place to work!

With ‘Family, Friendship and Fun’ as our mantra, we pride ourselves on making each working day enjoyable, providing staff with the tools needed to achieve our shared goals and ensuring that they continue to grow and develop with us.

We are a rapidly-expanding business and we are eager to share our passion for TV Home Shopping and Online Shopping with you. Our people are our business. It’s as simple as that!
