We’re proud to have an engaged workforce who rate us highly on Glassdoor, to have earned a ‘One Star’ accreditation from B Companies, and to have been voted Employer of the Year at the 2023 Globe Travel Awards. This has been achieved by providing a Real Living Wage at a minimum, holding regular community events, and creating a better work/life balance with flexible and remote working – just to name a few initiatives. Yet perhaps our people can put it best…
