Why Strategic North?

We know there are some things high on employees' lists of what's important and, when it comes to providing a competitive salary, a bonus, flexible benefits and a pension scheme, we tick all the boxes.

But what about the bigger picture? Why might you choose to join Strategic North? We believe there are many things that motivate us as human beings, that switch us on, and make us genuinely want to do what we do.

The sense of shared ownership in a growing business, where you influence its culture and future
Being part of a team of great minds, where individuals count and we look out for each other, we respect people's lives outside of work and enable flexible working
An office environment that's creative not corporate, fun not formal
Our light, bright head office is in a vibrant town centre and, according to the Guardian, 'general swankiness and astonishingly good schools'. Our location means we're also just 20 minutes to Manchester city centre - the European City of Science and 'best city in the UK' (Economic Intelligence Unit)
Access to top quality training and development as well as ongoing, personal coaching from team members who are experts in their field
The opportunity, no matter what level you are, to work on big, meaningful projects that ultimately impact on people's health and wellbeing
For this, we'd prefer to share the things our people say they value about working at Strategic North.
