  • Our training team. Either internal or external we use a variety of people to deliver our training. They are based right across the world and have a multitude of different relationships, experiences and knowledge that will help you do your job.
  • Our digital and product teams. This is the team that produces our fantastic content. You will work with them to build a bespoke product for clients and also to feedback on our client’s experience of their work.

  • The project management team. Your team! A closer and more supportive team is hard to find and you will fit right in. There will be times when you will cover each other’s annual leave, step in to support if someone needs it, or just be the person someone needs to talk to.

  • An influencer, someone who can work across the organisation at all levels to get stuff done.
