Reports to: Operations Director
Location: 318, Metal Box Factor, 30 Great Guildford Street, London. SE1 0HS
Why are we hiring?
ClerksWell is expanding.
We’re working with new industries, new clients and new technologies. We’re taking on bigger, better, more complicated projects because we’re good at it.
As we expand, we need more people. We need new, shiny talented people with passion and ideas.
Join our team in London and work with an inclusive team of weird and wonderful individuals who can’t wait to get you to the pub for after work drinks.
What is ClerksWell?
ClerksWell is an award-winning digital agency based in London. Our CEO and CTO met in the UK’s first internet café on Tottenham Court Road and 20 years later they are still working together.
ClerksWell is split into two parts and all of our staff are offered the opportunity to develop their skills across all of our technologies. There's the website side of things, where we build, maintain and fix websites built on Sitecore and Umbraco. And then there's the other side of ClerksWell, which offers consultancy and bespoke builds for Office 365.
Who are ClerksWell?
We’re a team of 30 individuals (and growing!) We’re a bright, vibrant, passionate team. We love to learn, and we’re inspired to do so. Every individual who joins our business has their very own development programme and promotion is actively encouraged.
Most of our staff have been with us for over 5 years (some for over 15 years) which speaks to the positive and constructive culture at ClerksWell.
