    AND Digital is a fast growing, tech consultancy.

    Our Business

    We believe in empowering people with the knowledge they need to unlock the full potential of technology. We’ve grown rapidly through the skill and commitment of our team, but we’re not slowing down and we’re certainly not stopping. Our work delivering for clients and building a remarkable workplace culture has been widely recognised across the industry.

    We are on a remarkable journey, with global expansion alongside significant growth in scale means that all of our team have the opportunity to make an impact.

    Our Clubs

    AND Digital is organised in a unique and special way. Our fee earners form part of a small, tight knit team called a Squad. Six of those squads plus a small management team and a team of specialist technical leads, make what we call a Club. Our Clubs have their own physical space and Client Portfolio, with the benefit of a strong and unique company-wide culture. The Club model has been carefully designed to achieve the best of both worlds: the attentiveness and empowerment of a small nimble company AND the clout and growth of a larger organisation.

    Bringing it together

    Our clubs are supported by a range of teams helping empower and support our leaders, people and clients. From marketing, recruitment, onboarding and academy to IT, commercial finance and legal. Whilst some services are provided regionally, legal, IT and commercial finance operations are managed globally from the UK in our Group business unit. Our Global Operations & Tech (GO&T) team in which the AppSec role resides are scaling up for the future and providing business critical risk management and operational services to our business.
