A Delivery Manager's
Life at Talk Think Do
The culture at Talk Think Do begins and ends with support. We care about our employees, our customers, and ensuring that everyone’s needs are met to the highest degree possible.
We also believe that experts are grown. During the hiring process, we’ll touch on your current level of experience and talk about what your progression path within our team will look like. You’ll have the chance to lead the way however you want to grow and become the expert you’re meant to be.
Day 1 and beyond
We like to strike a balance between having you hit the ground running on projects while still easing you into the role. Regular one-to-ones and catch-ups in your first few months of starting will give you the chance to air out your thoughts on how things are going and get you stuck into the fabric of the team.
Whether you’ve been in the technology world for a while or are just starting out, you’ll find that Talk Think Do has a space for everyone.
Everybody feels like they're a really valued member of the team and that when they give feedback, everybody's listening to it and looking at how that feedback can be included in our future processes and practices.
You get a top-end laptop and the freedom to pick between working remotely, or hybrid out of the London or Wimborne office!
Parking and cycling
Our London office is 5 minutes walk from Waterloo station. In Wimborne we'll buy you an annual car park pass to give you one less thing to think about. If cycling is more your thing, we have a cycle to work scheme and secure bike storage at both locations.
We know the importance of feeling valued by your employers and see that through with generous contributions to your pension.
We’ll help out in supporting any learning opportunities that come your way, whether they’re training courses, books, conferences, events or certifications.
We’ll get in touch for a chat to get to know you a bit better (and give you the chance to get to know us better too!)
You’ll be invited to a face-to-face interview at our Wimborne or London office.
If all goes well, we’ll get in touch to officially offer you the role, and you’re welcomed to the Talk Think Do team!
