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 in trust. When you join the team you’ll be given the freedom to conceptualise and implement the solutions you feel are best suited to the client’s needs, as we trust in the expertise you’re bringing to Talk Think Do.
You’ll get the added perk of being ingrained in a team of people that are all about communicating with and supporting one another. Expect to be aligned with mentors and even get the chance for external support thanks to our efforts to bring in more on-the-job learning and training.
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.
Importantly, the work you’ll do will be varied without being overwhelming — we want you to have the chance to take on a range of creative tasks and do them well.
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.
“We initially started as a solution architecture consultancy, working with large public and private sector brands on innovative, disruptive development projects. Solution architecture is therefore baked into our DNA and we fuse our understanding of enterprise-level governance with a delivery-focused approach to support entrepreneurial clients with ambitions to grow.”
25+ days of paid holiday
On top of providing 25 days of paid time off, we also add an extra day for every year of service to a maximum of 30 days, excluding bank holidays!
Our Vitality health insurance plan can be applied to your partner and children, and also comes with perks like a free Apple Watch, Amazon Prime, and discounted gym memberships!
You get a top-end laptop and the freedom to pick between working remotely, in the office or hybrid!
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 London or Wimborne 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!
