The Package

There is a real buzz, excitement and family feel about the place. All 70 of us are passionate about what we do.

We’re offer fully hybrid working, with team members deciding whether to work remote or in our lovely office in the centre of Leicester.

Working from home is standard these days but when people visit the office they work in their slippers, share pictures of their pets and kids, and frequently organise good old fashioned drinks in the nearby pub.

Above all - remote or not - after a fulfilling day’s work, people head home with a smile on their face. Looking after each other is the thing we’re really proud of :)

But, this is a job ad, and we get how it needs to work.

Other benefits include:

-Competitive salary based on your experience
-Flexibility to work remotely with no requirement on coming in to the office
-20 days annual leave and 8 days national bank holidays plus extra time around Christmas (based on full time working hours)
-Your birthday off
-Time off to volunteer for local charities to make a difference
-A big good old messy Christmas party and a mid-year summer party (all expenses paid)
-Whatever computer, software, books and other materials you might need
-A healthy budget for whatever training, conferences, and other qualifications you might be interested in taking
-Free-as-in-free beer, wine, and other goodies at the office as we near the weekend
-Regular paid for social activities (in person normally, but remote at the moment): cookalongs, yoga lessons, go-karting, curries, poker, and more
-Free flowing, high quality, award-winning Hasbean coffee on tap
-A gorgeous workspace with plenty of space to relax, think, read, cook, eat, and work

If this all sounds good to you, please get in touch!
