Flexible working at Waterstons

It’s all about balance with Waterstons and we have been flexible working since 1994. 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.

Approach to diversity & inclusion

In 2020, like many other businesses, we had a clear wake-up call about diversity, equity, and inclusion in both Waterstons and the wider tech workforce. Though we had formed a DEI working group back in 2019, the Black Lives Matter movement in the US, carrying over to the UK, made it startlingly clear that we could no longer accept or think our lack of diversity was due to our largest office being located in the North East, or the makeup of our recruitment pool. We needed to take real action, own our problem, and become a proactive part of the solution.

What do we think of Waterstons?

We've loved working with Waterstons through their Flexification. It's clear from the employee's responses that they are a people-first business and provide fantastic benefits. With such high scores for both Location and Hours, it's clear that employees love the flexibility on offer. The leadership team clearly provide a great environment with strong Leadership and Autonomy scores too.

Great stuff Waterstons!
