The organisational culture:
We’re a small organisation with around 45 staff. We have a friendly office environment and have worked hard to create a fantastic office culture, underpinned by our values. We have an open plan office to boost collaboration and the CEO’s office door is always open. We encourage everyone to speak face-to-face and build strong relationships with colleagues rather than communicating via email. We have regular all staff meetings to ensure that everyone is kept up to date on what we’re working on as a business, introduce new colleagues and to share successes.
We have a supportive management ethos with a strong emphasis on personal development. This means there’s plenty of opportunities to learn from colleagues, job shadow, knowledge share, mentor and take part in project work. Lunch & learns regularly feature on the agenda, and occasionally we invite guest speakers in to present. We have a Silver Investors in People award, which we’re very proud of. The award demonstrates our commitment to our staff, and the value we place on our team.
Our employees’ health and wellbeing is important to us, and we believe that we all achieve more when we have a healthy work-life balance. We operate flexible working hours as well as having a sabbatical policy for those wanting to take longer breaks. We also organise weekly walks at lunchtimes to encourage everyone to get out for some fresh air and take a break from their screens.
Our values and behaviours are integral to everything we do and are not simply posters on the wall. They were developed bottom-up by all the team, meaning we live them every day.
In addition to our friendly office culture, and supportive management ethos, we have an excellent reward package, here are a few of the highlights:
