Happy, balanced, healthy people not only enjoy their work more, they also do it better. Sometimes the people we want to work here can’t conform to a typical nine-to-five day. In these cases we’ll look at flexible working to help you fit your job to your life and your life to your job. We’re ready to listen to any suggestions from anyone and to consider any reasonable request.

Inevitably you will spend a fair amount of time at work, so we’ve made our offices places that people like to be in: friendly calm environments with modern work-stations, excellent IT, lots of natural light and clean, well-stocked kitchens.
