A workplace like no other
No getting stuck at your desk
For our teams to shine, they need to be at their best, and that means a focus on wellbeing. Downtime is essential: both our headquarters and London office have break-out spaces where you can play computer games, or take some time out, and a fully-equipped gym. A raft of health and medical benefits, as well as the chance to take part in after-work sports, will help keep you feeling tip-top. We’re a sociable bunch and you’ll usually find some kind of get-together or activity being arranged, while our charity work is a great way to get involved with some great causes.
“The social side is my favourite part of working here. There are great parties, charity events, bake-offs, Wii competitions… There’s always something going on and that runs across the whole of comparethemarket.com.”
Paul Cook, Business Analyst
Eat your heart out
Our headquarters’ two subsidised on-site restaurants offer a range of different daily menus and our easy cashless payment system means no more having to beg team members to spot you some change! Staff in our London hub also enjoy great food discounts so whether you’re a fry-up fan, a caffeine addict or a healthy eater, you really will be spoilt for choice.
Unleash your potential
Our approach to employee development means that our in-house mentors coach and support team members within their roles, and with our ‘brown bag’ sessions anyone can learn about something they’re interested in over an informal lunch.
We encourage employees to take part in events and conferences, and our sponsorship scheme means you can hit the books for an academic or professional qualification.
When it comes to your career, just tell us where you want to go and we’ll help you get there.
The shuttle bus
Joining us by train? Our free shuttle bus makes the short trip between the head office and station a doddle. It also runs to the nearby shopping centre at lunch, meaning everything you need is on your doorstep.
