A career with Thomsons

Here at Thomsons we don’t just get the job done, we go the extra mile. We strive to achieve one extra degree in all we do. We can do this because we have amazing people who do awesome things. Our passionate PINK culture is supported by our three core values that define how we work with each other, our clients and our partners: being brilliant together; maximising potential; challenging everything - delivering excellence. Our values foster an inclusive culture, which is vibrant, dynamic and enables us to excel as individuals, as teams and as a whole. Wherever we are located in the world, we inspire connections and take great care to make working at Thomsons a rewarding and fun career experience.

Our values

Many companies have values but often they can just be soundbites or words framed on the reception wall. For us at Thomsons, our values define who we are, how we work together and how we engage with clients, partners, suppliers, our communities - and everyone else in our universe.

Being brilliant together

Being brilliant together is about harnessing the power and passion of many and blending our diverse experiences, opinions and skills. We are a team that shows mutual respect, harnessing the passion of the whole to achieve so much more than we can on our own. We demonstrate our support by pulling together, working together and having fun together, recognising and celebrating our combined talents along the way.

Maximising potential

Maximising potential means we feel supported and empowered at work to help us achieve beyond our best and produce work for our clients and partners that is second to none. We try out new things, confident that experimentation will lead to innovation and if we make mistakes we learn from them to grow stronger. The sky is the limit as we push ourselves outside of our comfort zones to realise our ambitions, seizing new opportunities, recognising great talent, hitting our business goals and exceeding client and partner expectations.

Challenging everything - delivering excellence

Challenging the status quo helps us in our relentless pursuit of excellence and desire to build value for our clients and partners. We are curious and have the confidence to challenge and the resilience to be challenged. We do not like to stand still and are keenly aware that the next great idea is within our grasp. We know that no single person has all the answers, and we want to understand and be understood, learning together from both our successes and our failures. It is not just the challenge that is key; it is the ability to deliver the excellent solution that matters in equal measure

Benefits of working at Thomsons

As a leading employee benefits company you would expect us to have a top benefits package and we think that we do.

We reward our people for living our values and contributing to our business through a variety of benefits and perks. We appreciate that everyone is different and to reflect this, we offer a total reward package that offers a diverse range of financial, health and lifestyle benefits with total flexibility.

Outside of the typical retirement savings, life and medical insurance, here are a few more of our unusual benefits to whet your appetite:

  • Birthday day off – we want you to take time off to celebrate your special day in the way you want
  • Yoga, Zumba and fitness classes with a personal trainer – we want you to be your best so it is important to us to give you additional opportunities to feel your best
  • Free fruit in every office - yes, we all love cake – and there are many talented Thomsons bakers –but we want to encourage you towards your 5-a-day too!
  • Matching charity contributions, charity days off and Pay it Forward charity challenges
  • A spending account for you to spend on the things you decide are important
  • Financial education - it’s getting complicated out there and we want to ensure Thomsons people save for their future and are able to make the best decisions
