Resident was set up in 2004. Since then we have added 26+ Residents to the team, have more than doubled in shopfloor size, have installed one of the largest vinyl ranges in the country, have set up a successful website & thriving international mail order business, have been a long term member of the Record Store Day Board, have co-founded DInked Edition (an alliance of indie record shops who sell limited special pressings of albums), have taken on a large office space & put on loads of promotional live events, both instore & in local venues. All of this is driven by a team of 26+ Residents who are constantly looking to improve, expand & change up the business so that we can embrace opportunities that come our way & more importantly, create lots of our own opportunities.
The music industry is fast paced, relentless, passionate, chaotic & challenging. It means that no 2 days are the same & we thrive on that. Working in indie retail, at the frontline of the physical music market, buliding fanbases & customer relations, requires a lot of energy but it's a constant buzz. We get to work with great people & exciting product in a stimulating environment.
We are an ambitious business that never sits still so we need to be constantly working with inspiring & talented people who can help us to continue to grow & develop & improve & retain our Music Week Awards title of "Best Independent Record Shop 2022".
