The team

The East Midlands Primary branch is based in our Nottingham office, which is not far from the city centre, close to local amenities and easily accessible via public transport. The moment you walk into the office the positive atmosphere is immediately noticeable. This infectious culture heavily contributes to a very collaborative learning environment where everyone’s thoughts and ideas are supported and encouraged.

After all that hard work, we are also a very social bunch! Aside from frequent branch and regional nights out we have regular company-wide events which give everyone a chance to get together and celebrate our combined efforts and achievements.

A great 'can do' attitude, confidence, drive, and the ability to work well in a team environment will help you make this a success.
