The benefits

Early Access to Job Opportunities

Successful interns at Digital Glue will be the first to hear about any relevant job opportunities. Could an internship be the start of your career?

Hybrid Working

Some days you want to wear a ‘do not disturb’ sign on your head, some days you want to bounce a million ideas off your team. We get it. To ensure you have the best chance at learning while they’re at Digital Glue, at least 50% of your experience will be office based so you can ask questions, hear conversations and be involved in all aspects of what we do. The rest of the time, you’re free to work from wherever you like

Learning Commitment

We’re committed to helping you learn and get better. We’ll tailor a development plan tailored to your goals and ensure 30% of your time at Digital Glue is spent on learning.

Early Friday Finishes

After a week of smashing our goals, we down tools early on a Friday so we can hang out as a team

Working for us

Skills can be taught – personality can’t. Among other things, DGers are people with great attitudes and willingness to learn.

Listening First

Understanding the organisations we work with, not only their strengths and weaknesses, but also their objectives and goals, and the longer term ambitions enables us to see beyond the immediate requirements, really allowing us to add value.

Delivering what we say

All our decisions are made on the basis of one fundamental question: ‘Will this benefit the clients?’ Our existing customers come first above new business opportunities and exceptional results for our clients will be delivered at all costs.

Open & honest communication

We are honest with each other regarding our performance and quality of work. To clients we are always clear about project status, what we can and can’t achieve, and if any mistakes have been made we will take responsibility.

Challenging ourselves and our clients

It’s our role to challenge our clients. Ultimately it means being confident to give our opinions – that’s what we get paid for! Internally, we challenge each other to get better and push each other so we produce outstanding work.

Being creative

Creativity comes not only in what we do, but also in our approach. We look at problems in different ways and create solutions which others wouldn’t think of. We do this for our clients but also for our own business.

Employing great people

The people we employ have the skillset or aptitude required to do their job at an exceptional level. We conduct recruitment on a character basis and will employ only people we would want to work with.

Being self aware

We assess the strengths and weaknesses of the business, and ourselves, to improve where we are weak and build on our strengths. We understand the varied personalities of the team and complement these through recruitment and management.

Rewarding outstanding achievement

Where the team has achieved outstanding results for our clients and the business, they will be rewarded. We actively look for opportunities to reward our team – this may not always be financial, but with personal and unique rewards.

Always getting better

Anyone working at Digital Glue will be expected to improve the quality of their work on an ongoing basis. We seek training where appropriate, we look to learn from each other, and we create clear development plans for ourselves.

Making mistakes

We try new things, we test, we are creative and therefore mistakes will be made. We only make mistakes once and then clearly learn from those. We use the ‘fail small’ mentality when trying new things to limit the impact.

Enjoying each other’s company

Being part of a high-performing team means knowing the people around you. Real team understanding comes from working together and playing together. Digital Glue is a fun place to work, and we create regular ways for the whole team to socialise.
