Our Offices

  • We're so lucky to have an office in the centre of Brighton. We're right next to the lanes, and the Pavillion, and in just 3 minutes you can head to the beach for a lunch break. (We're also directly above a Pret which is both a blessing and a curse...)

Each quarter one member of the team takes responsibility as our Charity Champion and nominates their charity which they then organise/facilitate our activities and support for over the quarter. This can take any form such as regular lunchtime activities, half days from work, and ongoing games and challenges.
