A small but dedicated team of IKEA co-workers is now settling into new offices in Makati. We are all part of the team at IKEA Southeast Asia, which operates IKEA stores in Singapore, Malaysia and Thailand. Working for our IKEA company makes you part of a fast-paced family of people who enjoy exceptional career and learning possibilities. We will be hiring up to 500 people to help us open our first IKEA store in Manila.

IKEA Values

We believe that every individual has something valuable to offer and we strive to have the same values in the way we work.

Togetherness is at the heart of the IKEA culture. We are strong when we trust each other, pull in the same direction and have fun together.

As many people as possible should be able to afford a beautiful and functional home. We constantly challenge ourselves and others to make more from less without compromising on quality.

Renew and improve
We are constantly looking for new and better ways forward. Whatever we are doing today, we can do better tomorrow. Finding solutions to almost impossible challenges is part of our success and a source of inspiration to move on to the next challenge.

Give and take responsibility
We believe in empowering people. Giving and taking responsibility are ways to grow and develop as individuals. Trusting each other, being positive and forward-looking inspire everyone to contribute to development.

Caring for people and planet
We want to be a force for positive change. We have the possibility to make a significant and lasting impact – today and for the generations to come.

A simple, straightforward and down-to-earth way of being is part of our Smaland heritage. It is about being ourselves and staying close to reality. We are informal, pragmatic and see bureaucracy as our biggest enemy.

Different with a meaning
IKEA is not like other companies and we don’t want to be. We like to question existing solutions, think in unconventional ways, experiment and dare to make mistakes – always for a good reason.

Lead by example
We see leadership as an action, not a position. We look for people’s values before competence and experience. People who ‘walk the talk’ and lead by example. It is about being our best self and bringing out the best tn each other.
