Our benefits package is competitive and offers a range of options.  In addition to the standard 25 days holiday, you'll get an extra day off for your birthday. If you're looking for long term career development, our global business is the ideal place to establish yourself and make an impact.


We offer a balanced approach to office and home working - now and for the long term future. We know that not everyone is the same, many people have embraced the home working whilst others can't wait to get back. Therefore, we are offering our employees the opportunity to work from home up to 80% of the time with 20% of office time built in to ensure we get some face-to-face collaborative team time - and the chance for a coffee and catch up!

Our central Leeds office is also easy to reach, and surrounded by great places to shop, eat and socialise. Leeds itself is a buzzy, busy place to work and live. A hub for tech, digital and gaming companies - there are also five universities right on our doorstep. And away from work, we’re close to the Yorkshire Dales and of course have got a competitive sports scene with Leeds United and Yorkshire Cricket and Rugby just up the road in Headingley.
