Life at Havebury

Life at Havebury

We are a modern, flexible employer and our people are at the heart of everything we do 

Our flexible approach to work

Following the pandemic, we asked our team to review our future of work model. Our new model promotes a hybrid approach to work. You can split your time (dependent on business need) between Havebury House, your home or any other appropriate working space (a coffee shop, for example).

We trust our people to complete their objectives, and we are less focused on ‘where’ or ‘when’.

Our office has just been redesigned to promote collaborative working spaces which embrace technology and encourage face-to-face interaction.

We want our people to feel motivated, comfortable and engaged whilst at work. Whether that be co-working in our modern office, at home in your own space with your dog, or sitting working in a busy coffee shop.
