What our people say about working at Thomsons

James Akers

Director of Product Management

To put it simply, my role is to help shape the evolution of Darwin. To do this, it’s important that I understand customers’ reward schemes and needs. The global reach of Darwin and the possibilities it brings to streamlining reward schemes at a local and global level is something that makes coming to work every day exciting. With Darwin our clients are easily able to get analytics that bring transparency to benefit costs whilst measuring engagement and return on investment.

Andreea Bindea

Helpdesk Team Lead

I am a team leader in the Helpdesk team. We are the first point of contact in Thomsons for our client’s employees. We ensure that they have a great experience of Darwin, helping them out whenever they get stuck. Today, employee benefits are such an important part of everyone’s lives and we’re committed to getting it right the first time - all over the world. Speaking 5 languages is a great asset in my line of work, my favorite one is English!

Anindita Biswas

Senior Technical Business Analyst

It’s crucial that I understand the customers’ business needs so I can translate them into technical requirements. I love analyzing different employee benefit markets that are in our customers’ roadmaps and empowering them with the insights specific to each market. Three characteristics which make Thomsons unique: 1. Dedication to keeping clients and their satisfaction a top priority 2. Excellent company culture that respects a healthy work-life balance 3. Continuous innovation and a desire to be the best employee benefits software developer

Oana Costea

Delivery Manager

I manage Darwin configuration projects, providing tailored solutions for our customers. Every day is a challenge, whether it’s branding complex campaigns or finding solutions for tricky benefit flows. Organization and positive thinking are the two qualities that help me deliver on time and at the standard that both Thomsons and our customers expect. The thing I really like about working for Thomsons is having the opportunity to interact with clients and colleagues, all over the world.

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
