GrantTree was founded 7.5 years ago and employs 35 people. In our culture everyone has the freedom, power and trust to do their best work. We call this open culture. Our way of working aims to uphold human aliveness and commercial success simultaneously; it’s been successful for us so far, although it’s not for everyone (check out our GlassDoor reviews to learn more).
We believe that people should be rewarded fairly for the work they do. At GrantTree there is no secrecy over salaries and the way we work them out. For this role, this is likely to lie between £24k-£28k depending on experience. We do not work on a commission basis, and this role is no exception. We focus instead on offering empowered, purposeful work and an attractive overall package. If commissions are important to you in staying motivated, this is not the role for you.
Aside from money, we offer a place where you can be yourself. We want you to develop your skills and fulfil your potential. We have a flexible approach to working, and while this role will require you to attend face to face meetings, your time outside of those meetings can be as remote as you like. Our office near Old Street is bright and airy, with a fab roof terrace. You can take up to 6 weeks as holiday each year.
Teams are stronger when they have a diverse range of people. We welcome applications from everyone, regardless of the categories they put themselves in. We also encourage talented “square pegs”. If you think you’re the right person for the job even though you don’t quite fit the role spec, be daring and apply!
