How you’ll work – hybrid working

The world has changed. And so, have we. We’ve embraced hybrid working and split our time between outstanding office spaces and the convenience of working from home.

You’ll find out more about what hybrid working looks like for your role later on in the recruitment process.

Your office space


Our Osterley Campus is a 10-minute walk from Syon Lane train station. Or you can hop on one of our free shuttle buses that run to and from Osterley, Gunnersbury, Ealing Broadway and South Ealing tube stations. There are also plenty of bike shelters and showers.

On campus, you’ll find 13 subsidised restaurants, cafes, and a Waitrose. You can keep in shape at our subsidised gym, catch the latest shows and movies at our cinema, get your car washed, and even get pampered at our beauty salon.
