Commercial mindset, diverse and inclusive environment
Your wellbeing is important to us, and we offer a range of initiatives to protect it. This includes massages, physiotherapy, free fruit and a cycle-to-work scheme. We also provide a healthcare cash plan and a pension, and our social committee regularly brings people together. While our CSR committee leads us in supporting our communities and our diversity, inclusivity and engagement committees ensure we consider everyone equally.
The pandemic has been a challenging time for everyone, so we made sure our staff were looked after throughout. You can find out how we dealt with working from home, keeping everyone up to date and engaged and how we managed to have quite a bit of fun along the way here.
