We’re nothing without our people and that’s why recruiting talent is the most important thing we do. We look for capable and committed staff, who we empower to make their own decisions.
We've been awarded Investors in People Gold for the fourth consecutive time!
Working at Waterstons
Lots of companies are jumping on the bandwagon of flexible working and a liberated workforce; but we helped set the trend – we've been working this way since the very beginning in 1994. For over twenty-five years we’ve put people first. It’s not a fancy slogan for our customers, it’s a value set about our colleagues too.
We want people to learn and have fun but at the same time we want them to excel. We’ve been awarded Gold Investors in People four times for a reason.
Our business is built on solving problems; and learning and innovating is part of the process. We want you to develop and grow. Training is key and it’s why we invest in all our people.
Our hierarchy is nice and flat. You don’t need to wait for your boss to leave to progress – our people are promoted on merit.
We’re flexible which means our people can work from home if they want to and take time out when they need to. We don’t measure time; we measure achievements.
No maximum holiday allowance
That’s right. Take as many days off as you like. We find that when employees trust each other, no-one rocks the boat. It’s worked for us for over 25 years.
Family medical insurance; optional dental cover; generous maternity, paternity, shared parental and adoption leave policies; enhanced sick pay; life assurance; pension; EAP; free fruit and breakfast every day; childcare vouchers; staff discounts
Sound good to you? We take on experienced people, apprentices, placement students and graduates across our offices in Durham, London and Glasgow. Take a look at our vacancies for more details.
Waterstons is a good balance of being small enough to get to know a lot of colleagues whilst big enough to be an exciting place to work, with a variety of projects to get involved in. It’s a professional place to work without being too corporate. People are friendly and always supportive and willing to help one another.
