When we are recruiting we are often asked what we are looking for in someone that is interested in working for us. The following are some of the key characteristics that are important to us and support the way that we work as a team:
Confidence – the confidence to try new things, but also be able to understand and admit your limits, ask questions, request feedback and ask for help at the right time.
Good humour – positive emotions open parts of the brain that drive empathy, innovation and the passion required to overcome difficulties and learn new skills. We enjoy each other’s company and encourage a happy and mutually respectful environment.
Communication – being able to diplomatically communicate both encouragement and doubts using an approach and language that is constructive so that we get the best outcomes for everyone.
A strong work ethic – everyone has strengths and weaknesses but we strive to do the best that we can for our own personal development and for our clients.
A team approach – supporting others in the team by teaching, asking questions, understanding when others are under pressure, and, without being intrusive, being interested in each other as people as well as work colleagues.
There are lots of other characteristics, but these help describe the sort of person that thrives on working here.
As an equal opportunities employer, we respect and value everyone’s contribution either technically or in the way we work together, whilst maintaining a healthy “life/work” balance. We hold a “learning lunch” every Monday and there are plenty of other opportunities within the working week to disseminate knowledge. There are several team days each year including a business day and an away day to enjoy something new. We offer flexibility in the working day, several salary sacrifice schemes including the cycle scheme and child care vouchers and of course refreshments to keep you going through the day.
