We are RS

We are committed to creating a diverse

 and inclusive culture where our people get to bring their true self work every day and thrive. We recognise that a diverse and representative workforce is critical to our success, and our aim is to create a business where people can be their best selves. Our employees expect this as a matter of course and it is fundamental to how we attract, develop, and hold on to the best talent.

RS Components is a global omni-channel solutions partner for industrial customers and suppliers. Our business has operations in three geographical regions – the Americas, EMEA and APAC, supported by global organisations for supply chain, corporate functions, marketing, and product & supplier management.

Our market today is large, fragmented, local in nature and digitally immature. Only a few international distributors serve it, with many regional and local providers, who largely trade offline. Currently we estimate the global market value to be c.£400bn, with our global market share <1%. We stock over 2,500 supplier brands, 500k products and 63% of our sales are digital.

We are going through a period of change, as part of our Destination 2025 strategy, which positions us as becoming first choice for customer, suppliers, people, and communities. Our strategic priorities are:

  • Best customer and supplier experience
  • High-performance team
  • Operational excellence
  • Innovation
  • Reinvestment to accelerate growth

We recruit and develop employees who are the best suited to the requirements of the job role, regardless of gender, ethnic origin, age, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or disability. We believe everyone should be able to bring their true self to work and be given the opportunities to succeed. If you require any adjustments during this process to ensure you can bring your true self, please let us know.

We recognise that we’re not perfect when it comes to being a truly diverse organisation yet. However, we are passionate about diversity and are proactively working to build an organisation where everyone can see themselves succeed here.
