What’s it like to work for our client?

After working in Silicon Valley a number of years, the CEO has always encouraged a “can do, no hiding” culture within the business. To ensure this working environment there are three founding principles to our client:

  • They exist to generate shareholder value (for us as well as their investors)
  • Their people should leave us with better CVs and life skills than when they arrived
  • They should have fun (we have an annual ski trip, for example)

Hours may be long and demanding, however they promote a relatively informal way of working where bright people gain respect regardless of level and job title. Everyone has a voice and can all make a difference. at the end of the day if the company wins, they all win.
