Working at Proact: FAQ'S
Yes! At proact we believe in empowering our people to become the best version of themselves. We don’t take a traditional linear mindset to career development because we know that true learning and real variety and interest come from charting your own course through our organisation to learn whatever you need. We really are steered by every individual when it comes to development and we don’t pigeon hole people into functional areas either! Whether its technical know-how or enabling soft skills. We are bespoke in the truest sense of the word.
We work from 6 offices throughout the UK, so we have always used technology to connect and we are well versed in remote and distributed working. Our Proactivists work from our state of the art offices, from home, or from other suitable remote locations. We encourage colleagues to come in for key events and we have office connection days on set days each week. So we really have the best of all that hybrid working offers.
We like to hire people that fit in with their colleagues really well so that we ensure Proact continues to be a great place to work, so our emphasis on getting to know the person as well as the ability you bring is a really important part of our hiring approach. And it’s just as important that you get to know everything you want to about Proact because recruitment is very much a two way process – that’s our belief in Proact.
Supporting our local communities and other good causes is part of who we are. To us, being a responsible business means more than providing excellent IT services and solutions, it’s about seeing how we can add value elsewhere. We’re always looking to make a positive contribution to society and the environment around us. Each of our employees receive an additional 3 days to utilise for volunteering opportunities on top of their annual leave entitlement.
At Proact, we recognise that we have a part to play in addressing the climate crisis. As an industry, whilst technology is part of the problem, it can play a huge part in the solution as we look to the future. We strive to operate our business in the most sustainable way we can. We focus on minimising energy use, transport emissions and e-waste, but most importantly help our customers with the same challenges. We’re already making a difference, but we’re investing in doing so much more.
