Life with Waterstons
Life with Waterstons is rich, varied and rewarding. And regardless of skillset or seniority, everyone is treated with equal respect. Every voice is heard and every background is embraced. Everyone enjoys the freedom to learn, evolve, develop and progress. And we place diversity, equality and inclusion at the absolute heart of everything we do. Sounds good? Good.
Culture and benefits
Here’s the worst-kept secret in the world of Waterstons. It’s not what we do that makes us different. It’s not our awards. Nor is it our snazzy offices or lovely clients. It’s our culture. It’s the fact that over 200 people embody the same shared values. And it’s the fact that we’re a team in the truest sense of the word. The benefits are pretty brilliant too...
Someone smarter than us once said ‘every day’s a school day’. And we’ve taken that to heart. In fact, the only way we’ll stay relevant is if our people embrace new skills and knowledge at every opportunity. So that’s exactly what we encourage.
We believe in getting stuff done, not getting tied-up in politics. That’s why we have an anti-hierarchical hierarchy. That means each individual is empowered to make a difference, with plenty of room to progress as your influence increases.
It’s all about balance with Waterstons. We want our people to make a difference, but we also want their career to be the fuel for a happy and fulfilling personal life. That’s why you’ll enjoy flexibility on where and how you work.
Unlimited annual leave was one of our founding benefits and we can see it is becoming all the rage these days within other industries. The set-up is simple – we trust you to take as much holiday as you want – just don’t leave a colleague or client in the lurch.
We think a happier, healthier team is more productive, more effective and more enjoyable to be part of. And that’s exactly why we focus so much on every aspect of wellbeing – both inside and outside of work. Click here to read more.
Let’s not be naïve... the benefits and wellbeing stuff is brilliant. But everyone has bills to pay. So it’s good to know we offer competitive salaries across all roles, as well as a profit share scheme to make sure we’re all sharing in the good times.
- And more
There are all sorts of other benefits and perks too… from our cycle to work scheme to our season ticket loan and much more. All to try and help you keep your health and happiness in top-top shape. Just ask us if you’d like more details.
