Remote Working Policy Our offices are currently only open part time due to the Covid-19 pandemic through to September 2021. When it’s safe to do so, we will fully reopen our offices and adopt a hybrid work model. We are still working out exactly how this will work but for now we are asking people to assume around 20% of their time will be in one of our offices.   This means you will need a solid working from home setup. We’ll provide reasonable support and all the hardware you need to get started, but we do require that you have the following already in place:
  • A quiet working space at home 
  • An internet connection that supports your participation in video calls and access to our systems and services
At Spektrix, we know that there's no such thing as a 'perfect' candidate. Every individual brings unique lived and work experience and their own perspective, which rarely if ever maps exactly to a job description or set of criteria. That’s why we want to hear from you if this role excites you (and you feel you could be a good match) even if you don’t feel you meet 100% of the criteria.    Spektrix is committed to creating an inclusive work environment, where our team members are supported in expressing themselves and delivering their best work. So whoever you are, and whatever experience you can bring, please apply if this is a role that would make you excited to come into work every day.    The diversity of our team is hugely important to our working environment as it enables both individuals and Spektrix to thrive. By valuing each person’s differences we encourage everyone to contribute their unique experiences, strengths and viewpoints. We are taking active steps to build a workforce that reflects the diversity of the communities we serve and work in. We aim to reflect this diversity in all departments and at all levels of seniority in the business, right up to the board.   Spektrix is an equal opportunities employer. We recruit regardless of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, age, neurodivergence, or disability status and look to employ from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences.
