Flexible working at Oxford Ionics

🌐 At Oxford Ionics, we pride ourselves on fostering a flexible and hybrid working environment.

Outside of that, it's all about striking the right balance to maximise your productivity and well-being.

🌱 We're not just passionate about our work, but also about personal growth and exploration. We believe in unlimited annual leave because everyone deserves to recharge without counting the days. Our team members frequently travel the globe, presenting groundbreaking findings, giving lectures, and immersing themselves in the scientific community. And the best part? Oxford Ionics covers all travel and related expenses, ensuring our team can focus on what they do best.

🎉 We also believe in the power of togetherness and celebrate our milestones, both big and small. Regular social events and offsite company days form an integral part of our culture, creating memorable experiences and fostering team spirit.

At Oxford Ionics, we are committed to fostering an inclusive work environment where diversity of thought and varied approaches to problem-solving are valued. We believe that embracing individuals with diverse backgrounds, experiences, cultures, and perspectives fuels innovation and drives our ground-breaking work forward. We strive to create a supportive and empowering atmosphere where everyone feels valued and productive.

We're committed to promoting diversity and inclusion, which is why we're proud to have signed the Tech Talent Charter.
