Why work for Commonplace?

Group 2

 

Group 9Company values and culture

We value a healthy work life balance highly. Our team is proud of our supportive and inclusive culture, and we are committed to making Commonplace welcoming to everyone who joins us. As a platform built to power positive conversations, we encourage that in our working values too. This is why we offer all our employees flexibility and a full range of benefits too! Which is reviewed annually or sooner if the need arises.

Taking care of our employees’ health and wellness will always be a top priority. Our team has access to a confidential line for counselling services that are available 24/7. All employees are also offered 20 days fully paid sick leave in addition to other leave and medical accommodation.

Group 10Flexible and remote working

Whether you’re staying in for the postman or calling in from another country, Commonplace is here to support you! Our daily start and end times are flexible and we set up all our employees with the tools they need to be comfortable and productive when working remotely.

Group 21Fully paid unlimited annual leave

Our employees get fully paid unlimited holiday leave. That’s right! As long as a team’s work can get done, we don’t limit personal time off and the standard 28 days are the minimum that we ask our team members to use. Don't be afraid to ask!

Group 11Share options

We believe that our employees should be able to get direct benefits from the business they’re helping to shape, so after your probation you’ll receive comprehensive share options as the business grows.

Group 20Work from home fund

Need to set up a home office? Commonplace is here to help fund it. This could be a desk, office chair, screen, keyboard and mouse - or other essential equipment.

Group 13Employee recognition programme

We run weekly shoutouts so we can recognise our colleagues for their hard work, talent, and for embodying our core values. We also run Commonplace annual awards to recognise those going above and beyond. No work is ever unappreciated and we want everyone to know how valued they are as part of our team.

Group 19Equity, diversity & inclusion

Commonplace will always be committed to creating a diverse and inclusive environment. We have a dedicated Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Steering Group to help us create and maintain a culture which values difference. We’re always listening and are completely open to any suggestions that could make us a more welcoming and accessible place for all our employees.

Group 15Cycle to work scheme

To promote healthier journeys to work and to reduce environmental pollution, the scheme allows Commonplace to loan cycles and cyclist safety equipment to employees as a tax free-benefit.

Group 12-1Employee referral scheme

We think you’ll love it here so much that you’ll want to tell your friends. Send someone our way for a role we’re hiring for, and we’ll give you up to £2000 if they join the company and stay with us for a set minimum period.

Group 14Regular employee gifts

We value our team members and what a better way to say ‘’Thank you!’’ than sending them regular appreciation gifts and surprises? You’ll have to join to find out what...

Group 17Personal development fund

In addition to our annual appraisals programme, we have dedicated a training budget to support our employees with their learning and development. If there are skills you think you need or a course you think will help, we’re here to facilitate.

Group 18Regular socials

We have plenty of social events all year round - our Summer and Christmas Parties are just a couple to mention.

Group 16Staff handbook

We believe in clarity and transparency and all our workplace practices are clearly set out in our Staff handbook, which is reviewed annually or sooner if the need arises.
