10x Ways of Working
We recognise that a better work/life balance can improve people’s motivation, performance and overall wellbeing. The Covid-19 pandemic changed a lot of things about the way we work, including the enablement of colleagues working from various locations and delivering high performance through the effective use of remote working technology.

10x is a fully ‘remote enabled’ organisation and supports agile working. This means colleagues can decide, in agreement with their line manager, their choice of working location which will enable them to achieve their personal and team objectives.

The regularity of office working differs from team to team, but if you are successful in your application a member of the Talent team will talk this through with you in detail before progressing you to the interview stage. As all employees are employed on London-based contracts, commuting costs to the office are covered by employees and not by 10x.

Equal opportunities for all

At 10x we are passionate about our people and are committed to fostering a more diverse and inclusive culture. We are building a community where every 10xer can bring their authentic self to work and feel empowered to reach their full potential. Our many employee networks help amplify this vision.

Alongside assessing technical capabilities to do the role, our assessment process will identify what you can uniquely bring to our 10x teams, and the potential you have to thrive here. Common to every role that 10xers perform, are 3 core competencies that we look for in our future 10xers – Business Impact, Change Driver & Delivery Excellence

We are committed to ensuring all job applicants are treated equally and fairly and encourage applicants of all ethnicities, race, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, family or parental status, age, neurodiversity or disability status.

Accommodations

We recognise not everyone is the same. In fact, we embrace difference. If you require any form of accommodation during the interview process, please tell us so we can make arrangements to support. Any information that you provide will be recorded and maintained confidentially.
