Job Description

Kanth is looking for a passionate and engaging individual who is driven by purpose to aid our business, through building awareness of the brand and getting our voice heard in a crowded marketplace. 

Kanth is a UK manufacturer of Luxury Shower Systems but unlike all others Kanth puts sustainability at the very heart of its business. For us sustainability is not a trend but a belief we were founded on over 20 years ago. We feel the bathroom sector is out of touch with the rest of industry and there has never been a better time to get our message out there. The bathroom is an increasingly fashion led purchase decision and most large manufacturers have woeful PR campaigns with very little real content. With our mission and desire for better we want someone who can shake things up and bring industry leading expertise to our sector. 

Through principal led innovation we have some of the best performing products in our industry which offer; the longest guarantees, are fully maintainable, can be refreshed and can be bespoke designed. All Kanth products are fully manufactured in our operations hub in Telford, England serving clients across sectors including end users, retailers, interior designers, specifiers and installers. 

The next three years are very excited as we plan to grow exponentially; launching three new product lines, continually adding to our product line up and beginning global supply. Within a few years we will be the only Shower System company that offers a complete shower solution.
