We reward our staff with autonomy in their role and a supportive culture that encourages a healthy work-life balance. 60% of us are part time and we support flexible working, including hybrid working where possible. In return for your passion, knowledge and skills, you will receive a welcoming induction and continuing ongoing learning and development curriculum to support you in the workplace. Our annual programme ensures you fulfil any mandatory training required in your role as well.

Every recruit is treated fairly in terms of their potential to develop their skills here. We recognise people all learn in different ways and therefore a blended approach is best. You'll receive flexible e-learning from day one, alongside interactive face to face introductory sessions, and as you progress in your role, we will continually recommend courses as well as keep you on track of mandatory learning. Our staff really value the learning they receive. It’s one of the reasons people love working here.
