RS...who are we?

At RS we've been solving engineering problems for over 80 years: big ones, small ones, easy and difficult ones. We turn the 'what ifs' into the 'why nots', the impossible into the possible.

Our purpose? Making amazing happen for a better world.

We offer service and product solutions. We send out a parcel every 2 seconds, to over 130 countries. We provide over 700,000 in-stock and over 3 million unstocked products to more than 1.2 million customers.

We want people like you, as you are curious about things, you like doing things differently and in a human way with empathy. Because that's exactly how we partner with people - our customers, suppliers, colleagues, and communities - to solve problems.

We'll also invest in your development and wellbeing - because building a more diverse and inclusive culture, being ethical, responsible, and committed to our Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) action plan is at the heart of everything we do.

Come and join us and over 2000 colleagues here in the UK - and we'll help you to think big, do more and unleash your brilliance, so you do amazing things too.

  • Help for people to take control of ongoing Health conditions such as diabetes or asthma.
  • Support for Neurodiverse colleagues and families with neurodiverse members.
