Team2i is a delightful, supportive and inclusive mix of people from many nationalities, with many different beliefs, with a wide range of ages, and different ways of living and expressing themselves.
Your health and wellbeing are of utmost importance at 2i, and we have developed a plethora of employee-led clubs and groups to help you bring your whole self to work, and feel included and involved.
You can join the Book group, and the Film and TV group. If you want to get fit, maintain fitness, and support others in their journey, join the Fitness group (there's no judgement here!). If you are more interested in taste and trying new things, than the calorie count or nutritional value, join the Food and Drink group. Or Mindfulness, Music, or the Parenting Group.
For general joining in and getting to know colleagues, we have the Ministry of Fun, and all the events and activities that they organise. And if you can't see the group for you, create your own! You can bet that someone else has been waiting for you to start.
Our robust recruitment process puts candidates through a fair 2-stage process to validate their technical skills and cultural fit. This process is entirely based on the ability to do the job with no place for discrimination on the grounds of sex, race, sexual orientation or disability. All recruiting managers have had equality and diversity in recruitment training.
Process and governance are key pillars of the hiring process, and making the assessment and recruitment process as fair as possible is forefront at every stage. Technical tests are fully automated, coding challenges are anonymised to avoid unconscious bias and interviews are in a standardised format. This ensures a level playing field in the opportunity to get that break.
We take responsibility for being a fair and equitable employer and actively monitor our progress, including any gender-linked pay gaps.
Our gender pay gap is significantly lower than the national average for our Industry at 3.9% (as we are actively recruiting, this changes regularly, but we are committed to keep it as low as possible). The national average is 8.9% and we have an action plan in place to reduce the gap:
With ambitious current growth and recruitment needs, we will increase our efforts to attract applicants and make careers at 2i more accessible to those with disabilities. We are dedicated to providing equal opportunities and building an inclusive culture with a diverse workforce reflecting our communities. At 2i, we respect and celebrate diversity and believe it drives innovation and job satisfaction.
Employee engagement, health and wellbeing are at the forefront of everything we do. Our People come first – we want to attract the best (is that you?). We want to help them to reach their full potential (how far do you want to go/grow?). And we certainly want to retain the best (and give you no reason to ever want to leave!).
We get the basics right: All employees benefit from robust employment terms and contracts, a 5% contribution pension scheme, flexible benefits, access to free counselling, and a dedicated Career Coach.
Building empowerment and motivation, our Performance Management Frameworks are in place to provide clear career pathways and unlock potential. 4% of revenue is invested into Learning & Development.
We listen, and respond: Many new initiatives have been launched following regular employee surveys, get-togethers and team-chats. These have included mental health champions and training, director-open-diary-days, social committees, and collaboration beyond teams.
We regularly conduct wider team meetings, and twice a year, we gather everyone together at the 2iConnect – to share, to learn and to celebrate success!
As a tech company, we use technology to provide an environment where all employees can support each other, collaborate and share ideas. Our wider culture is to have an effective and productive team with a real sense of belonging that feeds innovation and creativity.
Our Communities of Practice enable staff to engage with their peers on topics they feel passionate about, empowering them to take control of their own learning path whilst also encouraging collaborative working.
The 2i “Ministry of Fun” is an employee-led, vibrant social committee, organising online and offline activities, such as walks in nature, chats, quizzes, and even (in working hours) online yoga classes.
Our Lunch & Learns enable us to share and expand knowledge beyond day-to-day tasks (what would you teach us?), and we have a plethora of clubs - book, film, food, fitness, mindfulness, parenting, music…
