We are big believers in the power of our people, they are more important to us than anything else. They inspire us, our customers and each other every day. Our priority as a business is to make sure they are not only challenged and happy but also to make sure they never leave. This also means we’re incredibly fussy about who we hire.
We recruit on character and aptitude, as well as skills. Although knowledge and skills are important, we have the resources to develop these, whereas character and aptitude are much harder to teach. We strongly believe that, if you have these qualities, the sky is the limit.
Our culture is based on the belief that everyone should be able to do the job they want, to the absolute best of their ability. By providing the right support, we want every individual to reach their full potential with Cloudserve. We proactively encourage our team to be the best that they can be in taking a leadership role in their own personal development and supporting them in any way we can with training, mentoring and an abundance of new opportunities.
We make an active effort to engage in the local community as we believe that in giving back to others, people will give back to us in terms of motivation and reputation. In 2017 we’ve been involved in a number of large conferences and educational events, helping to inspire and guide both the next generation of students and our peers in the industry.
It’s no secret that we spend a lot of our waking life at an office, which is why we’ve put a lot of effort into making ours as welcoming and comfortable as possible. Our head office is a stone’s throw from Bournemouth Beach, meaning that lunchtime walks or picnics are always on the cards, We’ve got an amazing coffee machine, Every Friday we go for a cooked breakfast as a team to catch up on the week gone by and we’re very flexible with our hours as we know that life doesn’t always fit around the 9 to 5. All our team also have access to an onsite Gym, Indoor and Outdoor Swimming Pools, a Hot Tub and Sauna, for when they need to unwind after a productive day!
