Our people

We’re curious by nature and have an open-minded environment that encourages and supports new ideas. Together, we cultivate a workplace where we all feel empowered to express ourselves, be creative and be our unique, authentic self at work.

Our diversity goals

Progress to a better, more equitable world needs to happen faster and one big way to do that is by building inclusive, diverse workforces. We’re a mixed bunch – we even call ourselves Magnetic misfits – and that’s our strength.

Our B Corp status

In 2023 we became a B Corp, the biggest independent innovation company to achieve certification. We’ve joined a community of 1,300+ UK businesses, all dedicated to building a better future for people, planet and purpose.
