Our people are what differentiate us, they are ingenious, innovative and dedicated. We have a mix of generalists and specialists and recognise that this diversity contributes to our success. In general, we work in teams. We recognise the benefits of forming teams from a mix of disciplines, which allows us to come up with balanced, high quality solutions.

We work hard and often go the extra mile, but we recognise people’s efforts and that everyone has a life outside of work. We encourage people to speak up if they want to rotate to a new project in support of career development, or even just to face a new challenge. We also support flexible working and keeping a healthy work/life balance.

Our breadth across the National Security sector provides diverse opportunities for our people to develop their careers in new areas of expertise or with new clients, if they choose.

Please note that it is essential that you currently hold high level UK security clearance.
