We're proud to put people first with wellbeing at the forefront of our culture, one example of this is that every employee receives £300 a year to put towards their wellbeing! In 2022 this was recognised in our ranking in the UK's Great Place To Work 'Best Workplaces for Wellbeing'.

All employees participate in the Group Profit Share Scheme, which seeks to ensure that everyone has a stake in the success of the company.

We recognise everyone needs a well-deserved break - As such we have introduced the 'Re-charge' benefit meaning the company will offer all employees an additional 2 weeks of paid leave after 5 years continuous service.

Lastly, we recognise the importance of work-life balance and we know that the 'ideal' balance will vary from person to person and will change at different stages of our working lives. If you require flexible working, please talk to one of our Recruiters about the flexibility you may need.
