Working for us
We do our best to create an environment where people can work autonomously, be themselves and where they are energised to drive their work forward. But, we know that at times they may work in difficult and unstable environments. Because of this we put our employees’ wellbeing at the heart of everything we do and their safety is our priority.
We are transparent and open with each other. We trust, develop and enable everyone to do amazing work and reach their true potential. We know that the best results are achieved when we work together and we place a strong emphasis on collaboration and team spirit across the organisation and with our external partners.
We aspire to be a diverse and inclusive place to work, we’re not there yet and it’s one of our top organisational priorities. We know we can only achieve change and impact in the world if we have the most talented employees with diverse backgrounds, cultures, perspectives and experiences. We are an equal opportunity employer and strive to build balanced teams from all walks of life.
We think we offer a great working environment: (although we’re continuously looking for opportunities to make it better) from flexible and agile working, generous annual leave, healthcare insurance and we contribute 7% of your salary to your pension or 401K. We are delighted to be a 2019 finalist in the Working Families Award for best flexible working initiative.
