Joining during a pandemic
From interview to induction, our process is safe and sensible based on the current situation with COVID-19. Even though we’re unable to be all together in the office right now, Crafties are connecting online and helping each other navigate lockdown. We know it can be daunting to be ‘the new person’, especially as you can’t physically meet your team just yet, but we can still make sure you’re welcomed, albeit virtually! We will supply you with equipment to make working from home comfortable and will continue our commitment to flexible working, even after COVID-19 restrictions are lifted.
Never a dull moment
Each team is made up of experts in their chosen field which makes for some exciting projects and strategies. Plus, it keeps our clients happy. You’ll never be bored, we promise.
As well as working hard (naturally) we have a good time doing it. Our social committee make sure when we get out of the office it’s to do something different. We have regular staff socials as well as a monthly social Friday (there’s a free beer fridge!) and extra-long lunches for everyone to get together and relax. We also like to use our power for good by giving and organising an annual charitable day off.
Life gets busy and we all value time spent with our loved ones. That’s why Crafted has flexible working hours between 8am and 6pm and operate a no email after 6pm policy. We don’t expect you to work unreasonable hours or miss out on important events in your life. We make wellbeing a priority, working with Suffolk Mind to talk stress, sleep and mental health awareness, plus free yoga classes will help you relax. There's also an employee assistance programme for any confidential help and support we all may need from time to time.
Pay day joy
We know you’re wondering about the money – it’s cool, it's important. As well as competitive salaries, Crafted has a regular and annual bonus scheme, a company-contributed pension and we help with season tickets for train travel. To reward you long-term we offer sabbaticals and extra days of holiday, but you'll receive 25 days plus 8 bank holidays as a starting point.
Reap the benefits
Supporting people in all aspects of their work and home life is important to us. Not everything can go ahead right now, but we're committed to bringing these back when the time is right. We offer the following benefits, with full details available from the People and Culture Team. Benefits include:
- Private medical insurance with Vitality Health, with the option to add your family too

- You can take 6-weeks of sabbatical at any point after your fifth year of service
- Lieu day for charity / volunteering work or raising money for a charity
- We support the cycle to work scheme which helps you to get a bike for the commute to work
- If you are a regular train user, we offer you a season ticket loan

Perks and socials
Alongside our benefits, we like to provide a few perks that brighten up coming into our large modern office, along with regular socials that bring everyone together. Here are some of the highlights:
- We feel it’s important for us to get together and eat, so we also regularly plan long lunches where we provide the food and give you a chance to catch up with everyone
- Regular fueling is key to performance so help yourself, at any time of day, to breakfast cereals, toast, yoghurts, fruit, and healthy snacks (although we love a donut too)
- There is a bean to cup coffee machine, which is clever enough to do you a cappuccino or a latte for your caffeine needs
- We offset your carbon footprint
- We operate a ‘work where’s best’ policy, allowing people to fully embrace hybrid working as it fits them, their team, and our clients
- We offer flexible working hours. Work life balance is important to us
- We love encouraging groups who enjoy the same things to get together. We have a run club and football club but we have had an active book club, crochet, and ukulele club in the past so anything goes – just find your people and do it
- We plan social events such as beer Fridays, summer, and Christmas parties along with Crafted experience days (the chance to get crafty or get active with your fellow Crafties, from go-karting afternoons to baking masterclasses)
