It's all about people
All good companies are made up of good people. That's why we showcase everything about the people and the culture of a workplace, because that is just as important as the job role itself. Since we were founded in 2011, we've visited over 500 offices in the UK and Europe, filming over 250 employees from entry-level graduates to CEOs and Directors. Watch our videos to hear from some of our employees and to find out how we practice what we preach.
"Working at GradTouch is really rewarding. You feel valued and empowered, and couldn't ask for a more trusting work environment."
- Kishan Kotecha, Business Development Executive
We reward our hard-working employees with trust, flexibility and some pretty cool perks. Here's what we'll offer you:
- Unlimited holidays. As long as your work is getting done, you can take as much time off as you need.
- Flexible working. Not just flexi-time, but the freedom to choose your own working hours.
- Free breakfast every day, and a big company lunch every few months. Because good work requires good food.
- Socials, office quizzes, a huge summer party - basically all the events you need to get to know us properly.
- Regular catch-ups with your manager. Because sometimes a good working relationship with your boss is all you need.
