What You Can Expect.

Whilst we expect hard work and dedication from all our team members, we know that life isn't as simple as 9-5pm. Whether your a busy working-parent or want to get to the gym in the morning, our flexible working policy allows you to come in later, leave earlier or even work from home 0.5 - 1.5 days per week.

We're a sociable bunch, and every Friday at 4pm the fridge is opened and we get stuck into beers, prosecco and non-alcoholic beverages. We genuinely enjoy spending time with one another and after the FJ fridge dries up, you can often find us in The Didsbury (HQ), enjoying a curry on Brick Lane (London), or hitting the bars in Downtown San Fran.
