  • We believe in having fun at work too! We run social events, summer barbecues, morning briefings with breakfast thrown in, an annual all-staff awayday and there’s always a plentiful supply of cake to raise money for charity and celebrate special occasions!
  • We support every member of staff to provide one day each year to support community projects that are really valued by the organisations and charities we help through activities such as gardening, litter picking, and painting.
