Why choose us

Our Culture

Our success is underpinned by our cultural values. These values are not something we stick up on a wall – they don’t need to be. They are behaviours that we recognise and celebrate in each other. They are what we live by every day.

Our Cultural Values

  • Celebrate brilliance
  • Take ownership
  • Share Insights
  • Look for a better way
  • Support each other

Our values are driven through Culture Club – a staff team that rotates every quarter. Advocates for our culture as we grow, Culture Club activates ideas, makes improvements and helps everyone to connect.

Our office and remote working

We can confidently say that our sea-view office is one of Brighton’s best, and we’re really excited that we’ve been able to open up the office to our entire team again. It’s been great to reconnect with everyone in person and to meet the newer members of our team for the first time! 

Whilst we see huge benefits to being able to collaborate and socialise together again, we’ve also learnt a lot about the benefits of working from home. Therefore, we plan to offer our team the flexibility to be in the office when they want to be, and when they need to attend key meetings and workshops, and to work from home on the days when that suits their lives and their workloads best.

When in the office, we have flexible workspaces, which means you’re not tied to a desk, unless you want to be. You could work in a sociable spot on floor 4, or set yourself up with a screen on floor 3. This is everyone’s space and it’s available after work – our staff host everything from gaming and craft nights to adventure film screenings.

Benefits include

  • Employee Assistance Programme (confidential counselling)
  • Medicash healthcare scheme (reclaim costs for dental, physiotherapy, osteopathy and optical care)
  • easitBrighton travel scheme (discounted public transport options)
  • Cycle to work scheme
  • Life Insurance scheme 
  • 33 days holiday (including bank holidays)
  • Contributory pension scheme

Other extras in the office

  • On site changing rooms, showers and internal bike storage
  • Breakfast, fresh fruit, snacks, beers
  • Yoga and other fitness activities
  • Regular social events, including Friday drinks and book club
  • Visits from friendly office dogs
