We're a family and we put our people first

People to learn from, caring people and people full of ideas (not to mention they can bake a mean cake). We, therefore, look after our staff and we’re all rewarded with, amongst other things:

  • Early finish every Friday - the weekend starts at 3:00pm
  • Input into our company goals – we are all asked for our opinions on where the company should be headed
  • A structured training program - built around you, your personal development plan and skills aspirations
  • Regular social events (to suit everyone) – quiz nights, escape games, barbecues, D&D, team get-togethers and our infamous Christmas party
  • Workplace flexibility – tell us what suits your lifestyle
  • Future thinking - enhanced pension contributions, critical illness and death in service packages
  • Wellbeing support – financial wellness sessions, a wellness guide, employee savings and cycle scheme access as well as activities and an in-office gym
  • Support for families - Enhanced maternity and paternity packages
  • A structured induction program - We make sure we give you everything you need to learn about the different functions across Fresh Egg to hit the ground running

Our core values

If you’re going to go the extra mile, you may as well make the journey easy. We’re efficient, responsive and reliable. We help our clients by thinking about things they haven’t thought about. Whenever they need us, we’re there.
The truth only hurts if it’s something nobody wants to hear. We don’t spin yarns, we don’t bend the truth and we don’t string anyone along.
We delve, burrow, and probe until every ounce of insight has been extracted. Then we think, explore and innovate until we’ve found the best ways to use it.
Having 21 years of experience doesn’t mean we sit back and enjoy the view. Our people push the boundaries so we can always find new ways to engage customers and drive results.

We care deeply about our team and their wellbeing. Our supportive atmosphere helps our people reach their maximum potential.
