Working for Kiss Me Deadly

Kiss Me Deadly is a very small company! You can read about the current KMD staff here.

We also talked briefly about who we are in December 2011, and then again in more depth in May 2012. Since then, we've hired Kate part-time to answer all of your emails, and we've had some wonderful interchangeable temps in response to our plea for emergency staff in October 2012.

At the moment, we're not currently hiring. For speculative enquiries, please send your CV - with a covering email which clearly explains who you are and what kind of work you're interested in - to

We do occasionally have space for interns, students and other temporary staff at our Sheffield warehouse, so it doesn't hurt to ask. But you'll have to convince Catherine, Rachel and the rest of the team that we're a good fit for each other. This is especially important because we're such a small team; we work very closely (literally and metaphorically) so if we don't get on well, none of us will have a pleasant working experience.

Everybody who works in the Sheffield warehouse answers directly to Rachel. She looks for staff who are numerate, literate and computer literate, because any work they do will involve a lot of counting and a lot of identifying stock - not so easy when it's in identical packages! You don't need to be able to rearrange an equation, design a search engine or write a dissertation about knitting in late Medieval England, but you will need to be able to count, use a calculator, write legibly, use the internet and have a good command of the English language. Just like the horrible employers you're always told about in school careers advice sessions, she will judge you on the spelling, grammar and punctuation of your CV and covering email.

Interns and students are likely to work more closely with Catherine. This means that you may be involved in Kiss Me Deadly's other activities in London and elsewhere; the exact nature of the work you do will depend on the arrangements you make with her. However, you will almost certainly still be working in Sheffield for most of your time with us, and we will expect you to participate in all of the day-to-day warehouse tasks. This is part of what it means to be a small team - we might call Catherine "God", but when she visits the warehouse, even she will pick orders, pack orders and count pants.
