Who we are:

By this point, you’ll likely have decided if the role sounds up your street, but what about Alcumus as an employer?

Time to introduce ourselves…

We believe that everyone should be able to go home safely from work every night, so we’ve made it our mission to build risk management solutions that are far beyond simple box ticking exercises, instead embracing new and evolving technology that will support our clients to keep their workforce safe.

We’re a PE backed, high growth business that sets ambitious goals, moves at pace, and fails fast. We believe that if you look after your people, they look after everything else, so we place significant emphasis on providing stretch for personal development. Our growth will be your growth.

We value diversity and work hard to foster a culture where everyone can bring their whole self to work, each and every day. Every one of our people is unique, and that’s what makes Alcumus stronger as a whole.

What we stand for:

Our values are the core of our business and fundamental to the way we work. In your role, you will;

  • Be a team player – working collaboratively and being consciously inclusive with your colleagues
  • Be brave – sharing your ideas, challenging the status quo, and taking responsibility for the part you play
  • Know your stuff – continuously developing your skills and expertise, with the support from our many learning offerings
  • Enjoy the journey – contributing to a positive working environment that enables you and everyone around you to be at their best

Sound interesting so far?

What you can expect if you apply:

  • A response to your application within 10 working days
  • An interview process consisting of:
    • An initial discovery call with the recruiter
    • A first stage interview via Microsoft Teams
    • A final stage interview (likely face to face) with the stakeholders you’ll be working with closely in the role

We’re keen to ensure our hiring process allows you to be at your best, so if you need us to make any adjustments, please just let us know.
