Careers

Want to come and work with us at Scaramanga?


We are a small Scottish company that has grown in just 10 years from Carl, our Founder, selling satchels from his dining room into what Scaramanga is today - a lifestyle brand designing and handcrafting classic leather bags and sourcing unique vintage furniture. We are now a passionate team of 10 ridiculously good looking people, who stress-eat chocolate and genuinely enjoy what we do and who we work for.

Team Scaramanga


What makes us unique? We love what we do!


We all wish mini eggs were sold year-round and we can all do one another's job. Yep, Dee, the Op's Manager, has packed a chest of drawers on a pallet and Graeme the Warehouse Manager has answered the phone... once, and we're really sorry to the person who was on the other end.

But more than that our Carl, 10 years later, still travels to different corners of the world to source the most beautiful original pieces and treasures that we get to adore for a short time before they're sold. Everything is handmade and original, and each bag or purse that we sell is made with amazing craftsmanship and a history of its own. This means a lot to us and we hope it means something to you as well.

We are always keen to hear from people with talent and often have posts available in customer service and despatch, particularly in the run-up to Christmas. So please email us on sales@scaramangashop.co.uk with a covering letter and your CV. We look forward to hearing from you!
