The Really Honest Part

We are a small business, and that will only suit some people. It comes with its own risks and drawbacks, but it also comes with significant upsides.

You have the ability to have a genuine impact on the place you work and be involved in the decision-making process. You get the opportunity to shape processes, decide on tools, introduce new services, and even decide on the office décor! We can try and be more flexible, and the entire team will be like your family (we have helped each other move before). You also get the opportunity to do more and experience more of the process.

The flip-side of this is that more can be required of you, upward progression is limited as you will work for the owner (although people can come in below you and your responsibilities will grow), and as with any company some things will be determined by budget – the company ski trips will be a little while yet.

How to Apply & the Selection Process

Please send a CV and covering email to We do not expect War and Peace, but please personalise it. Your CV will dictate if you’re qualified, the covering email is so we get to know you! Please take the time to look at our website and find the name of someone to email it to.

We try to get back to everyone if you have been successful or not.

The next step will be an interview with Matt (the company owner) and should that be successful you will also spend some time meeting with Olu (the other member of our team) to make sure there is a fit. It is very important that we create the right office atmosphere.
