Due to the Covid-19 pandemic the majority of the team are temporarily working from home. We have adopted the principles of agile working to support the flexibility and work/life balance of our people, focusing on what you do rather than where you do it. Whilst the team and individuals working with you may be based all over the UK, where you are based and work from is not an issue for us. Although we plan to have a London office, how you engage with the space will be explored further with you and our team in the future.
