Life in a small business

As a small company organised for simplicity, the traditional employer-employee relationship is replaced with a partnership. This means that:

  • Please don't expect the same support and infrastructure you would in a large organisation. If something needs doing it's likely to be your responsibility to get it done.
  • Everyone in our team is really important in terms of how our company is doing,  we're not the right choice for someone who just comes in and does their job.
  • You will have more responsibility for the whole picture, and you will also be able to have a greater impact than in a larger organisation.
  • You will feel a bit more insecure than you might in a larger organisation. How we are doing financially has a more direct correlation to your employment.
  • You will be required to contribute and take initiative. You will have to adapt to the fact that not everything will be in place, taken care of or running perfectly.
  • To work in this way open and straightforward communication is essential. This is a strong part of our culture.

From experience we know that it takes more resourcefulness to work in a small business versus a larger one with its resources and established systems. We ask you to think about this and see if you are match with us.
