    30 days’ holiday a year (plus UK public holidays), and we encourage you to use them all up!

  • Regular salary reviews

    We review everyone’s salary each month as part of our board meeting agenda and we try to give smaller, more frequent increases.

  • Flexible working

    We know that the option to work from home is important to people. We also appreciate that having time together in person regularly is vital too. We expect you to be in the office with your team two or more days per week and for certain key events. The rest of the time, do whatever works for you.

  • Personal Development Budget

    We believe personal development is just as important as training, so we give you a £300 budget each year to spend on learning whatever you want. It doesn’t have to be work-related. Have you always wanted to learn to play an instrument, speak a new language, learn to cook or even belly dance? Now’s your chance!

  • Client Referral Bonus

    If you know someone who might be interested in our services, put them in touch with the Business Development team. If we work together, you will earn a 5% commission on all client revenue for the first 6 months.
