We like to do things differently at Fry and we are seeking an individual who is capable of challenging the way we do things. Our people enjoy a very high-level of trust, autonomy, freedom and transparency. This is not lip service or HR-speak, it is the genuine article:
You can work from home and/or at one of our offices (or set one up near where you live).
You will not answer to any line manager but will work with colleagues as part of a team to get the job done.
You will be free to choose your own laptop, monitor and other devices as you see fit.
You will be free to choose whatever training you might need.
You will be free from much of the corporate bureaucracy which just slows people and stops them giving their best and mastering their craft.
All our finances are open-book: everyone in the company knows our income, outgoings, what we have in the bank and even everyone's salary. We think people make the best decisions for themselves (and the company) when they have all the information available.
We offer a generous salary, pension and participation in profit share. We are working towards the goal of our people setting their own salaries.
Come and join us – we promise you won't have worked for a company quite like it.Fry is an equal opportunities employer and we do no exclude people on the grounds of sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy, maternity, race, marital status, disability, age, religion, belief or sexual orientation
