We have a great team of people at Bamboo and there is a wealth of knowledge combined with an investment and passion for the business, from those of us with many years’ experience to those with just a few months.
We are committed to Bamboo being a great place to work, one that treats everyone equally and fairly. We hire, develop, and promote the right people for the job, with the right skills. And even if you don’t meet all the criteria, we would still like to hear from you. We want people who have the drive, talent, knowledge, experience, and ability to deliver the best possible service to both our external and internal customers.
Our equal opportunities policy details our approach to fairness and the avoidance of any discrimination in the workplace and covers all stages of employment from recruitment onwards.
Our offices are fresh, friendly and allow for safe and distanced working practices.
We are in Cheltenham, just off the M5. But if this is a distance too far every day of the week, don’t let that hold you back. Whilst we would love for you to want to be in the office joining the camaraderie every day, we have team members working up and down the country and welcome applications, from wherever you are.
As an IT and telecommunications service provider we have operated home working policies and infrastructure for many years. As such, we offer a very flexible approach to working practices and this continues to be even more flexible as we navigate our way through the current challenges.
Irrespective of this, the company offers an optional 8 week working from home entitlement to all members of the team.
At Bamboo we take pride in doing things differently. We love to see ambition and we value a passion for progress, in any discipline.
If this job spec appeals to you and you can bring Bamboo something a little different, please send a CV and covering email to email@example.com.
