Our mission:

  • Have great attention to detail and can easily identify inconsistencies

It would also be great if:

  • you’re super organised and have proven your ability to prioritise effectively

What's in it for you:

  • 🚀 Grow with Goodlord: your development is important to us. That’s why we have a team pot for training courses which your manager will be in charge of
  • 💕 Your well-being matters: bi-weekly coaching with Sanctus to provide Goodlordians with a safe place to talk and support your mental health
  • 🌴 Holiday: we encourage Goodlordians to make use of their time off to enjoy the world, recharge and reboot. We offer 23 day plus UK Bank Holidays.
  • 🤗 Supporting your family: we offer Referencing Goodlordians 13 weeks of fully-paid parental leave to look after their new arrivals, following 12 months of service
  • 🤩 Our team: we’re an energetic, sociable, and talented bunch who are super passionate about what we do and determined to make a difference. We’re all in it together, we learn from each other, we’re genuine and we don’t have time for politics
