How we will interview you:

We try to keep our interview process short and as a small business, we can move through the stages quickly. Due to availability, there may be a change to the order of the interview process, but generally speaking, this is what you can expect:
  • Introductory call/interview with Clare, our People Lead. The call is usually via telephone and will last around 30 minutes.
  • Should it feel like there is an initial fit for all, we will invite you to a video call with the hiring manager for around 45 minutes. This is a more structured interview and will deep dive into the role and technical needs.
  • All of our roles will have a small assessment stage. This might be in person, a take-home assessment, or further video calls. Length varies, however, we are mindful that you will have your work to do and therefore try to keep it as simple as possible.
  • Meet the founders and/or other team members. Again, length varies depending on how many people and whether in person or via video call.
  • Offer!


We divide this into the basics you should expect, and the added benefits.

The basics:
  • Salary range of £65k - £80k
  • Statutory pension
  • All the equipment needed for you to do your role effectively
  • Flexible working
  • Remote or hybrid options
  • Personal Development budgets
  • Support with entry into London COO & Operations events and networks

The benefits

Coming soon:

Following a review with our existing team, we are currently redrafting our benefits package to cover the things you need/want. Co-creation is at the heart of many of our People processes and we can’t wait to unveil our new and improved benefits.
