Futureheads have worked with this company for a number of years, including placing the Head of Design there in 2015 (still there). They look for people who are not only talented but are committed to making a positive difference to everything they get involved in. Working there means solving some of the biggest challenges in technology and customer experience for one of the UK’s most successful businesses.
Company culture is very important to everyone here. Their achievements are not just the result of working hard; they’re also the result of employing passionate people. They think that how they work is as important as what they work on. So that means that everyone can (and is expected to) speak up about the things they think they do well, the things they can do better and the ideas they’ve got. Empowering people with ownership and responsibility means it’s possible for everyone to make a positive difference to everything they get involved in.
