Shape public services and improve lives

Scroll to content

We’re on a mission to radically improve public services and achieve better outcomes for citizens, by enabling public service leaders to grip the challenges of complexity.

But this wouldn’t be possible without our people. Meet any of us and you’ll see that we are inquisitive, constructively disruptive, and above all fired up about what we do.

We’re extremely proud of our team and of our energising and inclusive culture. IMPOWER is a place where your opinions and contributions matter, where diversity is celebrated, where we look out for each other and where we believe that work should be both challenging and fun.

If this sounds exciting, we’d love to hear from you!

Company culture

We are determined to achieve positive impact and contribute to a better society – but also to be a good employer, so that our people can enjoy their work and fulfil their potential.

Here’s what some of our colleagues say:

  • "People ACTUALLY care...about each other, about the public sector, about making a difference on a daily basis (it's not lip service it's true!)"
  • "I came to IMPOWER straight from the public sector, and it feels like the company are equally as driven to deliver outcomes for citizens as colleagues in the public sector are"
  • "There is a culture of high performance but with the support, trust and emphasis on personal development needed to thrive. There is a real focus on outcomes and client impact"
  • "We're an intellectually curious, seriously friendly bunch...who aren't afraid to go against the grain to make a big positive impact on people's lives"
  • "The culture is supportive, fun and mind-expanding. I feel respected by my managers and colleagues and empowered to think of new ways to meet client expectations"

What we offer

Alongside a competitive salary, discretionary bonus scheme and pension, we provide a focus on:

  • Being human

    We are led by our values and by a desire to do the right thing. Our starting point is respect - for the people who work in public services, and the people who use them (including, of course, our own employees).

  • Celebrating individual differences

    We value all differences in our team, acknowledging different skills, experiences and motivations.

  • Wellbeing

    Wellbeing – employee wellbeing is a company priority and we treat it accordingly. We look out for each other - for example, since the pandemic struck, staff have been empowered to adjust their working hours and manage their diaries to encompass home schooling or caring responsibilities. We have a wellbeing action group which works with colleagues from across the business to develop wellbeing initiatives and strategies, such as training a team of Mental Health First Aiders. We provide a gym subsidy contribution (including for online fitness class subscriptions).

  • Flexibility

    We have parent, guardian, and carer friendly policies in place.

  • Insurance

    We provide private health, dental, life and income protection insurance.

  • Socials

    We are a social bunch! We like to get together regularly in project teams or as a whole company, whether for meals out or an activity. Even during periods of lockdown we have kept this up via our online clubs, virtual drinks and fitness challenges. The strength of our social relationships at work have helped create and maintain a genuinely supportive company culture.

  • Development opportunities

    We offer regular training and development opportunities, and personal development is a key element of ‘People Friday’, held every two weeks.

  • Corporate social responsibility

    All our staff can spend two days a year volunteering in support of causes or organisations that are important to them.

  • Discounts

    Our employees benefit from discounts through Perkbox.

Diversity and inclusion

We are committed to ensuring that our culture prioritises diversity and inclusion; this is the right thing to do. It will also ensure our client work is more creative, more insightful and of higher quality. We have D&I champions at every level of the business and are proactively taking steps to improve our understanding of colleagues, clients and the communities we work with.
