Benefits:

We know that having a happy team is key to creating the feel-good factor that helps us be the best we can be as a business so we offer a competitive range of benefits:

On top of some of the usual stuff like quarterly bonus, pension and private medical care, we also give our office-based staff the flexibility to work for up to 2 days from home, as well as their own dedicated desk which is theirs if they are in the office or not. This is alongside flexible hours for an even better work-life balance. And perhaps our most popular perk is our on-site café with free breakfast and lunch expertly crafted by our amazing chefs, and with not one soggy sarnie in site…did we mention the “proper coffee” available daily too.
