Located in a vibrant borough in North London, our office is modern and open plan with a roof terrace and some pretty amazing views of London! You will be surrounded by culture. With a wide selection of restaurants, shops, theatres and fitness centres (we have our own fledging five-a-side football team and are involved in many fitness charity events!).
 
Our team is driven, close-knit and we work in a fast-paced environment. We all pull together to achieve common goals, drive the business forward and we very much work hard as a team. And, yes, our office dog is a part of that team!
