We are huge believers in the need for a little downtime, so along with the usual 28 days holiday, you will always have your birthday off - a little birthday present from us to you (along with the cake and embarrassing office rendition of Happy Birthday).

We also believe in giving credit and saying thank you for a job well done. This could be anything from lunch on us to a hamper of goodies or vouchers to spend at John Lewis and It doesn’t stop there. Once a year we arrange an office away day, not your stereotypical ‘bonding exercise’, we’ve taken over the top floor of Hotel Gotham in Manchester for cocktail making and private dining. Sore heads in the morning are optional!

And as breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you will always find toast, butter and jam to help kick start your morning and coffee, tea, biscuits, fruit and healthy snacks to keep you well fuelled for the day ahead.

If you think you’ve got what it takes to blow our socks off...we want to hear from you.
