We Listen

We listen, reflect, and implement change when we need to. All voices are heard.

We actively listen to our candidates and clients, paying att­ention to detail so we can respond to needs in a thorough way.

We Support

Learning and development is key to our culture; we give our people the tools and support they need to do a great job.

We continuously consider the wider needs of our people; supporting a good work-life balance and employee wellbeing.

Happy employees deliver great customer service. Our flexible policies enable our people to be their very best at work.

We’re Ethical

We treat everyone as we’d like to be treated and drive inclusivity in our recruitment practices.

We do not force our own agenda – we genuinely care about gett­ing the best outcome for our clients and candidates.

Our charity partnership

We are delighted to announce a new charity partnership with a St Albans based charity, Earthworks. Earthworks supports people with learning disabilities (known as Earthworkers) alongside volunteers, to help manage 3.5 acres of beautiful eco-gardens in St Albans.

As Earthworks is a wonderful charity which is very close to our hearts, we have committed to running a monthly schedule of fundraising activities in order to make an impact; to make a difference to the charity and their social impact goals.

What’s it like to work here?

You’ll have autonomy, responsibility and accountability; we know top people thrive on this. Weekly reviews and monthly appraisals give you reassurance that you’re doing a great job, and help optimise your performance by identifying opportunities to develop.

Ultimately we want to provide our employees with rewarding and meaningful work in an environment that promotes collaboration and development. But don’t just take our word for it, our glowing employee testimonials speak for themselves.

Joining Intelligent People as a Research Executive, it didn’t take long for it to feel like home. The work that we do is fast-paced and challenging, but we also do it in a genuinely fun and supportive environment – a difficult balance to find in most graduate roles!
