The important stuff!! Here’s a bit about our culture that we believe makes Vextrix a great place to work

What if we can have work-life balance? What if we can be rewarded in ways that support our individual needs? What if we can be accepted for who we are? Here at Vextrix we believe we can!

We recognize that work is only one part of our lives and making time for the other things in our life is important – be that our families, our friends or ourselves. So, if working from home, working part-time or having flexible start and finish time will help then talk to us.

Be you, be happy – we strive to have a friendly and inclusive culture which respects and maximizes the contribution individuals can bring to us. We know the benefits that people with varying backgrounds and experiences can bring. Having been recognised with an award for our inclusive and diverse culture, we continue to promote the right culture to enable all of our people to reach their full potential, and to ensure we continue to promote equality, inclusivity and diversity for everyone.
