What our team says

"I've been at OfficeMax now for over 6 years - the longest that I've ever been at one company. Every year that I'm here I find something new to love about our business. I started in 2014 in the role of Recruitment Consultant - something I'd been doing for almost 10 years, and whilst I loved it, after 18 months in the role I felt I was ready for a new challenge. My next career step saw me transfer into the Marketing team as a Content Specialist, a role I enjoyed immensely for over three years!

One of my absolute passions is writing, and seeing an opportunity for me to expand my skillset further, I moved into my current role as Bid Writer. I work alongside an energetic and passionate nationwide sales and specialist team - and I find it absolutely exhilarating! They often say it's the people that make a company - and OfficeMax is no exception, from the very top (our MD Kevin is just absolute gold!) all the way through - the people make OfficeMax what it is!

I couldn't imagine being this happy anywhere else!"

Melissa MacMillan, Bid Writer

What our team says

"I have been fortunate to have worked in two different roles within the business since joining OfficeMax in 2016. I began my career at OfficeMax as a Recruitment Consultant before taking on a Sales Management role in 2018. Both have afforded me the opportunity to gain a great understanding of the people, culture and business. OfficeMax is certainly a company I am proud to work for from the amazing people I get to work with through to the exceptional initiatives OfficeMax support such as Max e Grants.”

Hayley Beaumont, Sales Manager Inside Sales

What our team says

"I love working here at OfficeMax because of the personality of this organisation. The people that I get to meet and collaborate with everyday, are so diverse and engaging. Four years ago, I decided
that I needed to leave my job of almost 7 years and became a Telephone Account Manager here at OfficeMax. Since then, I have gained valuable skills and knowledge. I have recently been successful in securing an on the road Account Manager
position at OfficeMax. Best decision I made!'
