Benefits

We respect and value differences. We believe that when people from different backgrounds and with different perspectives work together, we can create the most value for our people, readers, customers, and society. If you are excited about this role but your experience doesn’t align perfectly with everything listed in the job description, we encourage you to apply anyway, as you may still be a good fit for this or other roles.

 

We’re striving to create a more diverse and inclusive environment and to ensure our content is representative of all our audiences.

Flexible and hybrid working

We know we create great things and have fun when we come together in person and collaborate. We also know that working from home brings great benefits in terms of being able to focus on our work, and manage our personal lives around our roles. With this in mind, we have established a hybrid working pattern, with 60% of the working week spent in the office.

Our people also benefit from a flexi time policy, and a flexi location policy which gives everyone the opportunity to work from another location for two weeks during the year.

We are open to discussion about flexible working requests for any flexibility needs not covered by these policies.
