So that's Firebrand and the role but what is it really like to work here?

We are a global business
Our head office is in London, and we have offices and training centres in Europe. Our business language is English but the Firebrand team (some of whom work flexibly and remotely) together with our clients is a diverse group.

Regardless of where you are based, you will have all the tools you need to carry out your role. You'll also have a 'buddy' to help you settle in and answer any questions before you join and during your first few weeks.

Day to day communication between the teams and regions is easy… as well as regular face to face contact and meetings, you'll also get to 'see' colleagues through regular Skype/Teams calls and 'hear' what everyone has to say across the various Yammer groups. We want your thoughts and feedback too so you'll be encouraged to be an active part of the groups you're a member of.

A great working environment
First and foremost, we want you to have a rewarding career - we'll give you all the support and encouragement you need to develop and to be your brilliant self. We have a strong sense of wellbeing for everyone who works here and actively encourage a work/life balance.

You can dress casually (but please don't dress to distract!) and you can enjoy the strong camaraderie from the many events and social activities we run.

What's in it for you?
The contribution you make to the success of Firebrand's business will be recognised. You will benefit from BUPA Medical/Dental Care, our workplace Pension Scheme and Life Assurance, our Ride2Work scheme, Season Ticket Loan, up to 25 days' paid holiday (plus an extra day to support your chosen charity), time off over Christmas, an annual bonus (depending on business performance), a sabbatical rewarded for long service and access to our accelerated training.

Our company Code
We're very proud of our Company Code which was built collaboratively by the whole Firebrand team. We live and breathe it every day and will expect you to do so too. As you get to know the business and your colleagues, you'll see how our code comes to life.

Hungry - Be successful, hit your targets and get better at what you do.
Open - You're open to new ideas and change.
Care - We care about what we do and act with honesty and integrity.
Fun - Work should be fun, fulfilling, and exciting.

If you feel that you fit the above criteria, please don't hesitate to apply here today!

This role will be subject to background verification checks including right to work, referencing and police checks. Further details can be shared on application or request.
