It's what you need
Maxima - we are proud of our team!
Since 2009 Maxima has been running Angle Tree charity campaign. With the help of store visitors we collect gifts for those who really need them: children in need. In the month of December, Angle Trees will be placed in Maxima stores all over Estonia. They will be decorated with children's names and their Christmas wishes. These names are collected with the help of child protection and social workers of respective city, district or local municipality.
Fulfilling the wishes will bring joy to many children for whom a gift from an Angel Tree may be the only one. Every year, Maxima’s Angel Tree charity campaign collects around 2000 gifts. These are delivered to the children with the help of local child protection and social workers.
Since 2018 Maxima has been publishing a children’s book. As in 2019, the three best-selling books in Estonia in 2020 were the children's book "I care about Estonia", written by Heli Illipe-Sootak and published by Maxima – the first place went to the Estonian version and the second to the Russian version of the book.
The third most popular book was "Let's invent! Dio, Aiti and Estonian Friends", a puzzle book with exciting tasks by Ekaterina Lomaško, Sales Development Project Manager in Maxima Estonia’s Sales Department. Children's book "I care about Estonia!" was the follow-up to the hugely successful "Our Estonia" and "My Estonian Adventure" books.
Maxima stores in Estonia serve an average of 140,000 people every day and Maxima employs nearly 3,700 people in Estonia. In 2020, the retail chain had a turnover of €502.9 million. As a result, Maxima continues to be among the TOP10 largest companies, employers and taxpayers in Estonia.
Maxima Estonia is part of Maxima Grupé, a Lithuanian retail group with more than 1,300 stores in Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Bulgaria. In total, Maxima Group employs nearly 40 000 people and serves more than 1,3 million people per day.

Maxima values an individual's right to freely choose his or her field of activity, profession and job, regardless of the extent of his or her ability to work. That's why we are also a member of the Employers' Association, which brings together employers who treat people with reduced work capacity equally with all other job applicants and employees.
It is important for Maxima that all employees feel comfortable in the organisation and that is why we are members of PARE (Estonian Human Resource Management Association), in order to continuously improve the quality of HR management.
