We’re looking for a friendly person to join our team to work across content and marketing and help us grow our e-commerce site and social media presence.

About Usual Objections

We make and sell our swimwear from our small studio in Hackney, East London with a focus on sustainability, community and making super awesome products.

Usual Objections was set up by two of us, Rich and Linda. We sold everything we owned to start making swimwear and follow our passion. It was 3 years in the making and finally launched 2 weeks before lockdown so it’s been a bumpy ride, but we’re now starting the next part of our journey and need new people to join our team and help grow the business.

What we do

We make high performance, technically developed swimwear. Hand crafted from high quality materials, ethically sourced and sustainably made by us.

We’re now expanding our range to include street and active wear. We are also developing a series of workshops to learn aspects of the business and make cool things!

We sell online but will soon be opening a small retail space.

  • Help co-ordinate photo-shoots and liaise with photographers, models and location
