What our people say
I love how everyone works as a team - well, as a family really - regardless of their job role or department, they all care passionately about what they do and who they are doing it for. I have experienced outstanding support, understanding and patience from my colleagues, nothing is ever too much trouble and corners are never cut. Work ethics like this are extremely rare.
I work for a company that I am very proud of, one that offers care and support, and one that makes me love what I do, one that makes me excited to get up and go to work and give the very best I can. After all, that’s what they give me.
Diversity and Inclusion
We want to attract talented people from a wide range of backgrounds and with different preferences and experiences. We strive to create an inclusive and collaborative working environment where everyone can contribute, learn, develop, be themselves and grow together.
Our Belonging Network ensures that we treat everyone equally and with dignity, integrity and respect, regardless of background.
Our Diversity Employment Network is committed to improving our ability to recruit staff from different backgrounds.
Working with the Armed Forces
We are truly invested in, and a vital part of, the ‘military family’. Entertaining, informing, connecting and championing them is at the core of everything we do.
Some of us are ex-services and current reservists, while others are from the media, broadcast and creative industries. But irrespective of our individual backgrounds, we are driven to meet the needs of all our audiences.
From the morale of the armed forces, to the confidence of veterans retraining for civvy street. And from charities struggling to communicate from disaster zones, to curious civilians interested in the work of our armed forces.
