Culture & benefits

We truly value diversity in our workforce, and we're actively working becoming a more diverse and inclusive organisation. We write quite a lot about what it's like to work here at Seccl - genuine flexibility, an inclusive and friendly team, a beautiful Bath office, great perks and benefits... we could go on.

But you don't have to take our word for it. We were recently voted one of the top 100 places to work in the UK by Escape the City.

If you need further persuading, our current eNPS score of 59 shows that 78% of people who work at Seccl selected 9/10 or 10/10 on how likely they would be to recommend us as a place to work.

Some of this is down to our generous benefits, that include...

· All the usual stuff - 27 days' holiday (plus bank holidays and religious holidays), cycle to work scheme, an extra day off for your birthday, and pension and life assurance policies

· Genuinely flexible working. Come into the office as much or as little as you choose

· Truly inclusive culture where diversity is a top-level objective

· Heavy focus on mental health and wellbeing. Take the time off you need, and make use of our mental health breakout room in the office, as well as free access to therapists and a Headspace subscription

· Strong commitment to continuous learning. We encourage everyone to spend 10% of their time learning new things, and provide free access to over 10,000 online learning courses via Udemy, which you can use for anything you want (whether professionally useful or not)

· Generous freebies and discounts through Perkbox (which includes Perkbox Medical, giving access to GP appointments), and a subscription to Rakuten for free movie downloads,

· A genuine commitment to delegated team ownership, a flat structure and massive quest for openness and transparency in how we work and share from the Board all the way down

· Beautiful office in the centre of the stunning city of Bath. A stone's throw (literally!) from the train and bus station

We're also part of the Octopus Group - an innovative, £10bn+ group of companies including Octopus Energy, Octopus Ventures and Octopus Investments. Octopus are on a mission to breathe new life into energy and financial services, and improve the lives of millions of people, so it's great to be under their umbrella.

If you're thinking of joining us or want to find out more about our work culture, you can also check out our Instagram, LinkedIn and Glassdoor pages.


Our recruitment process has moved to 'virtual hiring' only - and we don't see this changing anytime soon. This will include video interviews and virtual onboarding... stuff that we've all become pretty used to over the past eighteen months.
