How we work

We're innovative, agile and open

We’re open to new innovations and technologies that help us rise to the challenge, improve our effectiveness and provide more value for our audience.

About us

Benefits and perks

Sure, we offer the usual competitive salary, bonus scheme and a great bunch of colleagues, but we also provide some unique benefits for our valued employees!

Our Recruitment Process

Our recruitment process is straightforward and simple. Tell us in no more than 200 words why you’ll perfectly fit the role you want, and if we like what we see, we’ll take you through these three steps:

The Coffee Stage

A one-to-one meeting with your potential line manager will provide you both with an opportunity to find out more, on a personal and business level. We’ll ask you questions ranging from standard career reviews to cultural fit, and expect you to bring some of your own!

The Interview Stage

At a more structured meeting, you’ll be asked to prepare a presentation. This is an opportunity for you to showcase your expertise and passion for your future role, and will often present to a Director at Vertical Advantage, so get ready to stand under the spotlight!

The Drinks Stage

An informal hour with some of your future colleagues will be a great chance to ask further questions, and get a feel for the business and the people who make it successful in a more relaxed setting. An alcoholic beverage is optional, but if you want one, you’ve earned it, so enjoy!

Join Us

We don’t want a CV or a corporate sounding covering letter with lots of buzzwords you think we might want to hear. We are sure you are ‘driven and personable’ and you are ‘both motivated to work as an individual or as part of a team’ but we’d like to know something different!
