We have 85,000+
associates in over
26 countries.

And that’s how we make
everything easy.

We’ve been helping businesses get what they need for over 25 years. And it’s all thanks to one man – and a broken printer ribbon.

In 1985, when our founder Tom Stemberg wasn’t able to find a replacement printer ribbon on a holiday weekend, he came up with a way to make office supplies more accessible – and affordable. Now, Staples is about much more than paper clips and pens. And to realise our vision of becoming the world’s most trusted source for office solutions, we’ve put our trust in our associates – that’s what we call the dedicated people at the very heart of Staples.

We now operate in three distinct areas: Retail, Business-to-Business (including acquisitions like Quill and Corporate Express) and eCommerce. To keep these areas running smoothly, we also have associates working behind the scenes, both in the field and in our corporate offices across the world. Find out more about each of these in the panel below, or use the job search tool to discover which business areas offer opportunities in your country.

We’ve sold more than 3.5 million Easy Buttons. Imagine the noise if everyone pressed them at the same time!
