Crockett & Jones

Crockett & Jones is expanding in all locations and needs people who are adaptable and reliable to join our ever expanding workforce that currently has an average length of service of over 15 years. Experience is desirable, but not essential as full training is offered. Most of all, we are looking for versatile and enthusiastic candidates who can work towards the same end goals as our Directors: Product and Customer excellence.



We are recruiting for a Closing Room Engineer to undertake and complete work given to you by your Senior Engineer (line manager), Room Supervisors, Room Co-ordinators and Team Leaders.

The position requires a practically minded engineer to help solve issues on a variety of Closing Room machines. There are a variety of machines in our closing room, thus a successful candidate will be able to follow accurately different instructions and follow/learn machine specifications.

Excellent problem solving skills with the ability to work on machinery safely are essential. You should also be flexible and adaptable in your approach to work with an aptitude for handling multiple tasks.


PERFORATING, BEADING, BINDING. We currently have a vacancy for an experience closer to join our ever growing team in Northampton, to help produce some of the finest shoes in the world. This position would suit someone with Closing Room experience, knowledge and ability. This position will be a well paid, secure and full-time position.


The Closing Room involves ‘closing’ or creating the uppers of the shoes. This department contains many different operations; from edge staining and ironing, to the punching of the holes for brogue patterns, fitting eyelets and tassels, and stitching each leather component together to form the upper of the shoe.

These positions will be well paid and secure. All vacancies are full time roles which will suit people who are flexible, reliable and have an excellent eye for detail. Experience is not a necessity but would obviously be of benefit. The Closing Room operatives and machinists are highly skilled and require high levels of concentration and excellent hand and eye coordination. Valuable skills will be gained over a period of time. Full training offered.


The first stage of production is to cut the uppers of the shoes from the upper leather and lining leather, using patterns. A Clicker is responsible for examining the leather for defects, scars or growth marks before deciding how to best utilise the leather with quality and efficiency in mind. A good clicker will eventually be extremely knowledgeable about the various types of leather and the ongoing challenges which arise from what is a natural material, in order to maximise the usage whilst retaining the upmost quality.

We are looking for dependable, motivated and committed candidate to become a part of our established Clicking room. These positions would suit existing clickers or people who have a keen eye for detail with great hand eye co-ordination. Full training offered.


For a more entry level position within our Northampton factory, we are recruiting for a leather sorter. The role consists of diligently inspecting cut sections of many different types of leather for flaws and defects that could result in substandard footwear. Ensuring quality levels remain high starts as soon as the leather is cut. Training will be offer and valuable knowledge gained.

We are looking for a dependable, motivated and committed candidate to become a part of our established Clicking room. These positions would suit a candidate with previous experience within the shoe trade wishing to move departments, or someone who is keen to learn about a material that ultimately produces some of the finest footwear in the world. Full training offered.
