Our aim is to create a great place to work for everyone; a place where our people feel they belong and can be at their best. Recruiting talented people, engaging and developing them and supporting them in their career aspirations are important commitments we make to everyone that is part of our team.

Our culture is our DNA and has always been an integral part of who we are. At Alcumus we’re open, collaborative and caring, where people can be themselves at work and we’re proud to place diversity and inclusion at the heart of our business. We celebrate individuality and we aim to be a genuinely inclusive and diverse organisation, which is fundamental to our success.
Rewarding and recognising employees for their good work is a big part of our culture. We’re big believers in celebrating success and it’s important to us that we reward hard work and make our team feel valued and appreciated.
Having a balanced life means that everyone is happier and healthier, and we want our people to know they can talk about any issues they may have openly and in confidence. That’s why we place great focus on the wellbeing of our team and have a range of support in place to help you. We have mental health awareness trained and certified champions across the business and a range of initiatives that help to support and encourage our employees when they’re at work and with any personal issues they may be experiencing.
We’ve also introduced a range of family-friendly policies, increased female representation at executive level and reviewed our approach to flexible working.
It’s about doing what matters, in the right way. That’s why people choose to join Alcumus and want to stay!
Equity, Diversity and Inclusion
Our aim is to make Alcumus an equitable workplace, where everyone has equal access to opportunities and where everyone is welcome, included and feels like they belong.
As we work to make Alcumus an even more diverse and inclusive workplace, we want to build a culture that is both proactive and sustainable.
By focusing on being proactive, we can create positive change through revamping our processes, policies and procedures. In doing this we want to make a lasting difference for our people and our communities.
To underpin our foundations, we are introducing communities that provide colleagues with valuable support and advice, a place to share views and ideas and raise awareness of issues and challenges.
These communities will influence our people policies, help us to challenge the status quo, and give us insight into how we need to adapt to give colleagues the support they need to succeed.
Having a balanced life means that everyone is happier and healthier, and we want our people to know they can talk about any issues they may have openly and in confidence. That’s why we place great focus on the health and wellbeing of our team.
We have Mental Health First Aiders across the business who are here to support you, as well as access to range of support, such as our UK Healthshield scheme that provides cashback for everyday health care costs, a 24/7 GP, online health assessments and an Employee Assistance Programme. The team in North America have access to LifeWorks and Manulife Vitality, which offers a similar range of services to support our people.

From Our Team
"Everyone has been welcoming, happy to talk things through numerous times to ensure complete clarity, and are happy to answer a billion questions! SLT encourages everyone to contribute and think of new ideas that will help the business (and the clients) which is a more modern and consultative approach compared to other companies, where your voice can be lost easily."
Jodie Thomas, Business Development Executive
"Since joining Alcumus, I've worked closely with some really inspiring people. I've grown so much professionally, improved my overall knowledge, my ability to solve problems, and how to manage my time efficiently. I've recently progressed to a new senior role, where I can contribute even more to the company and our clients. It's so rewarding to develop innovative solutions that will improve customer processes. Alcumus offers great opportunities and recognition in a friendly and fun environment."
Amanda Bracks, Senior Configuration Technical Lead
"I’ve been working for Alcumus for over 8 years now, and originally joined as an Application Developer into Technology, but have since been promoted to Software Development Manager following a career path throughout my time in the company. What excites me most about Alcumus is the potential it has as a company to grow into a more software-led business that can scale to exponentially grow our client base."
Mark Gabb, Software Development Manager
"Over the past 12 years working for Alcumus, I have been offered a wealth of opportunities. I have experienced excellent progression here, with Alcumus offering me new roles to further my career and providing me with support through my professional exams. Alcumus is going from strength to strength and I look forward to what the future holds."
Rhys Doolan, Finance Business Partner
"Since joining Alcumus, I have been blown away by the drive and ambition the company has to grow and continuously improve. With a real focus on people, there seems to be lots of investment into employee well-being, benefits, development opportunities, and support to allow people to really be themselves at work- and what a great group of people they are!"
Terri Foulston, Head of Talent
How We Support Others
As part of our vision to create better workplaces and keep people safe, we strive to have a positive impact, for everyone, in everything we do.
The way we do this is through our focus on employee wellbeing, community support, charitable giving and environmentally friendly projects for the benefit of everyone and future generations.
In 2020, we made a commitment to plant a tree for every employee in the business. Following the bush fires in Australia at the end of 2019, our people elected to plant these trees in Australia to help restore the damaged environment there resulting in a donation of over 550 saplings via OneTreePlanted.
Throughout the Coronavirus pandemic, our canteen team provided hundreds of meals for local people, including half term lunches for local children. We’ve raised thousands of pounds for charities over the years and are proud to support several organisations which our staff care passionately about.
