EUROPEAN HEADQUARTERS, Hilversum, Netherlands

Nike’s EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) Headquarters is located in Hilversum, just 16 miles southeast of Amsterdam.  With more than 1,400 employees, made up of 68 nationalities, the campus is an international melting pot where critical corporate HQ functions are housed to support over 75 countries across the EMEA region.

The campus also features a fully equipped gym, a running track, basketball and tennis courts, and a football field. An employee store is open to sell NIKE product at a substantial discount, while two restaurants are open daily to serve up healthy food options.

Nike EMEA recruits for both HQ positions in Hilversum and roles in Territory across all functions.

In keeping with Nike’s commitment to sustainability, our EMEA headquarters is an eco-friendly building with a number of special features:

-The roof is shaped to collect rainwater and is used to irrigate the gardens and flush the toilets – saving the company over four million liters of clean water per year.

-The heating and cooling system is revolutionary. In summer, a large water reservoir is heated by the sun and releases its heat over the winter. In reverse, the same reservoir collects the cold in winter to cool the building in summer.

-The tennis and basketball courts are made from recycled training shoes. In a process called 'Nike Grind', Nike used around 4,000 pairs of shoes to make each court.

Greater China/Asia Pacific

Located in downtown Shanghai on Nanjing Xi Lu you’ll find the prestigious Plaza 66 Commercial Towers, where Nike Greater China makes its home. With annual revenue in excess of US $2 billion and ,2000+ staff, China by far is our fastest growing global market and our second-largest single market behind North America.

As the leading sports brand in China, Nike continuously push the limits of innovation and growth. We remain closely focused on bringing the brand closer to consumers, while creating platforms for Chinese athletes to pursue their dreams. The foundation of our success in China is, of course, innovation – innovation drawn from listening to the voice of the Chinese athlete and then applying creative design and technology to meet their needs.

In China, Nike is taking the retail experience to the next level, delivering true personalization and customization at every turn. Continued expansion of our retail network will only build stronger consumer connections that will feature our most innovative products – allowing us to strengthen the Nike brand and enable a truly world-class shopping experience.

Growth is all we’re experiencing in China. Whether it’s across our Running, Training, Sportswear, Tennis, Action Sports Categories; our hardworking employee-teams in Merchandising, Marketing, Sales, Retail; or our Enabling functions, such as Human Resources, IT and Finance – we are on the offense always for both local and global talent.
