Life at FreeAgent

Our culture

Right from the very start, our founders were uncompromising on their vision of creating the kind of workplace culture they’d always wanted for themselves: somewhere you can be yourself and do your best work. Come and be a part of it!

Own it!

Be empowered to tackle big hairy audacious goals, while accepting that we’re smarter together.

We relish accountability as our mandate for putting a dent in the Universe.

Enjoy it!

Life moves pretty fast. We work hard, and things get bumpy sometimes, but you should be enjoying the ride.

Stay curious, keep learning and be excellent to each other.

Be proud of it!

Sweat the details, be bold in your ambition and innovate by pushing the boundaries.

Above all, understand how you’re helping the customer.

Somewhere you can be yourself

Our values are the basis of our culture. We want people to feel nurtured and at ease so they can feel empowered to tackle those audacious goals.

We passionately embrace the diversity of our team, knowing the variety of our experiences and backgrounds only makes us stronger.

How we work

We want to give everyone the opportunity to shape and influence where we’re going. Our approach is to communicate honestly and openly across the business. We like to trial new ideas, strive to learn from all of our mistakes and operate a no-blame culture in which we support each other at all times.

Our workplace

Our office is our hub and it looks great. But it’s more than just pool tables, drink fridges and one of the best panoramic views in Edinburgh.

Our breakout areas help foster better teamwork and collaboration, while our wellness spaces provide a quiet place to chill out if you’re having a busy day. We provide fruit and healthy snacks in the office, and run activities like board game nights and art sessions, if that’s your thing.

We want everyone to feel looked after, in a space where they’re comfortable.

Remote, but not ‘remote’

Online connection and collaboration are built into FreeAgent’s DNA. We embrace hybrid working and the flexibility this brings, and have people working remotely around the UK. If you’re a remote worker, you’ll be at the heart of your team through virtual catch ups, Slack chats and video meetings, so you should never feel isolated.

Here's what the team have to say:

Janice Atherton

Head of Support

We genuinely believe in personal development and strive to help and encourage our people to be the best they can be.

Emily Coltman

Chief Accountant

Everyone who works here is so friendly and everyone’s welcomed and accepted for exactly who they are.

Jessica Farmer

Managing Editor

FreeAgent’s approach to career development has allowed me to build an amazing career and do things I’d never imagined I’d be able to when I first joined the company.
