  • Flexible Working

    Whether your child's ill, you're waiting for a package, or you have some deep-focussed work to do, we all work from home (or café) from time to time. We encourage everyone to work from home when you need to.

  • Regular Salary reviews

    In line with a salary framework, to ensure equal pay for equal work and that we recognise and reward when your responsibilities increase.

  • Holiday

    X days’ holiday a year (inc UK public holidays), and we encourage you to use them all up! It's a marathon, not a sprint.

  • Health insurance

    Private health insurance, and paid sick leave (for both your physical and mental health).

  • Maternity, paternity and adoption leave

    Well-paid maternity, paternity and adoption leave, which you're eligible for if you join more than 13 weeks before your expected date of childbirth or adoption.

    Pensions, with a 4% employer contribution.

  • Learning and training

    We'll contribute towards books, training courses and conferences that help you learn and grow in your role here.
