Our culture

Last Updated: 19 Apr 2016
Our work relies on the constant sharing of knowledge and ideas. It’s a collaborative approach that recognises people’s strengths, respects their expertise and enables them to develop a variety of innovative solutions.

No matter where you’re based, you’ll find an atmosphere designed to encourage open minds and attitudes, supported by a welfare and benefits structure that enables you to be at your best. From extensive training and development that allows you to expand your skills, to the flexibility to explore different roles and the tools and technologies that enable you to do your job effectively, we’ll help you to achieve your full potential.

At our five sites in Cheltenham, Bude, Harrogate, Scarborough and Manchester we offer flexible opportunities to develop a work pattern that suits your personal life, as well as a number of family-friendly policies such as childcare vouchers.

A rewarding place to develop

There is plenty of potential for both personal and professional development at all of our sites. Many of our roles are totally unique and from day one you’ll have access to specific training to bring you up to speed. We not only offer extensive learning and development to support your specific role, but we also encourage our people to explore new opportunities, supported by appropriate training. Which means you can build a long, rewarding and varied career without the need to leave us.

From a personal development plan, mentors and work placements, to links with academia, industry and professional partners, we’ll give you all the opportunities you need to succeed. It's up to you to make the most of them.
