Working at Crucible

Here at Crucible, we’re lucky enough to have some of the most talented minds in the business. And we’re currently on the look out for more wonderful people to join the team!

Our employees are the reason why Crucible is a pretty awesome place to work. So we make sure we do our part to help our team feel supported, both professionally and personally.

Why Crucible?

Web design agency employee

Supporting your mental health

Supporting our team’s mental health is incredibly important to us, which is why in addition to annual leave, everyone gets 3 mental health days per year.

These can be taken whenever you need to, no questions asked.

Putting your welfare first 

We work hard and have a fast-paced agency environment, but the health and welfare of our people always comes first.

If you need to pick up your kids, or a loved one is unwell or you have a medical appointment, this all comes first. You won’t need to make up the time or take annual leave.

We want to make sure all our people feel as supported as they can at work.

Investing in your workspace 

At Crucible, working from home is the default, and there’s no obligation to come into the office unless you want to.

Because of this, we have a £250 per person annual budget to put towards making your work space at home comfortable and supportive of your needs.

If you’re happy with your existing set up, you can spend this budget on your health and wellbeing, like a gym membership – it’s up to you.

Celebrating equality and diversity 

It should go without saying that equality and diversity is celebrated and championed within every business, but unfortunately as a society, we’re not there yet.

At Crucible, equality and diversity is a key part of our people strategy and recruitment process. We strongly encourage people from all backgrounds to apply so we can continue to grow an equal and diverse workforce at Crucible.

Regular socials 

As a largely remote team, we make sure we invest in at least monthly socials to promote a strong workplace culture and relationships in the team.

All socials are paid for by Crucible so that everyone is able to join.

Tight-knit, supportive culture 

We’re a small agency, which means we all know each other pretty well and have a friendly and relaxed culture. As we’re remote, we do quick check-ins at the start and end of the day to see how everyone’s doing.

Working in environments which allow me to work autonomously have always suited me. At Crucible I’m trusted to work independently on a variety of different areas which keeps me engaged. Delivering projects with an ambitious team provides the opportunity to learn a great deal and keeps me on my toes - where I like to be!
