  5. Win Together, Lose Apart – we help each other whenever we can. It makes a big difference.
  6. Pride Over Profit – stand up for what you believe in, don’t just bow to a big budget.

Along with this, we offer 25 days holiday and your birthday off – as we all need to enjoy some R&R!

We also have an annual £500 training allowance per person for your development, insightful masterclasses, pension, Headspace subscription, and a range of other PP perks.
