About Us

Jones Bootmaker was founded by Alfred and Emma Jones in 1857. Born as a family business, it has become an integral part of the British footwear industry and a trusted source of beautifully crafted footwear on the British high street.

In 2018 Pavers Shoes acquired Jones Bootmaker, bringing it full circle back into the hands of a family-owned business with traditional values and a passion for footwear.

Jones Bootmaker operates as a multi-channel retailer with over 20 stores nationwide, and a growing online presence. The brand prides itself on using quality leathers and expert construction methods to provide luxury footwear at affordable prices.

We were voted one of the Top 10 Employers in Retail in the UK in 2020. At Pavers we truly believe the talents, passion, and dedication of our employees are the reasons for our success.

In 2021 we became the first major retailer to achieve Carbon Neutral status and have upheld this standard for 3 years consecutively. Championing sustainability is at the heart of everything that we do, and we’re committed to leading the way in changing the future of retail for the better.

We strive for diversity of thinking across the business and believe strongly in supporting our local communities. In 2018 we donated over £2.2m to establish the Pavers Foundation, with the specific purpose of providing charitable grants for causes important to all our colleagues in the areas of health, education, and community. Every year Pavers donates 2% of its net profits to the Foundation, together with monies collected from the plastic carrier bag levy.

Our People

We are passionate about providing comfort and happiness to our customers, and we make sure to employ people who also think this way.

We look for positive, enthusiastic, and customer-oriented individuals, and we provide great jobs in a supportive environment for them.

We know that without our colleagues there is no business, so we have created a work culture that promotes inclusivity, ambition, opportunity, and growth opportunities for all.

We always try and do the right thing by our people. We are dedicated to investing and developing our whole team as they form the foundation of our success and continuing growth.

Our colleagues benefit from in-house training, external development opportunities, and other routes to progress their careers and build their knowledge and skills. We encourage internal progression and can offer opportunities in stores and at our warehouse and head office.

Pavers Academy

Pavers Academy is a branch of our Learning & Development function, focusing on a variety of areas, including job-focused learning and leadership development to provide clear pathways to support our colleagues in achieving successful careers.

We are continuously reviewing and adding new pathways to the Academy to ensure we provide our people with the skills, knowledge and mindset to deliver the best service and perfect products to our customers. This includes a wide range of mental and physical wellbeing courses and additional support that colleagues can access outside of the workplace. This has been a huge success in aligning employee goals and performance with that of the company.

We use a variety of methods to support development, which include, but are not limited to; Pavers Academy Online, face to face courses, apprenticeships, professional qualifications, and mentoring programmes.
