Just IT is ranked as a Top 100 Best Small Company to Work for by the Sunday Times. This is a great achievement for us, especially to be recognised in the Top 100 employers out of 5.3 million small companies within the UK. At Just IT we like to do things a little differently.

We provide our employees with the best benefits and involve the entire company in events to keep up engagement.

For us, it’s about building a happy work environment where everyone has the freedom to express their creativity. We want to put a stop to those ‘dreading Monday morning’ feelings and have everyone feel at home when they walk into the office. Achieving Top 100 status has been a goal of ours, but it’s only a step on our journey. As our business grows and we help more people into the IT market, we will continue our dedication to making Just IT one of the best places to work in the UK.

HELPING

THE COMMUNITY

At the heart of Just IT is our desire to support people in their career, no matter what their background or age. But when it comes to giving back, there is a lot more than career support going on behind the scenes.

WORKING WITH CITY GATEWAY


 

Caring for the community is an important piece of Just IT culture. Not all young people are given the same opportunities in life, so we are using our experience and knowledge to help those who may be at a disadvantage to pick up some important career skills.

City Gateway offers training for young people in Tower Hamlets, starts social enterprises to serve the local community and builds partnerships to help people into employment. Staff members at Just IT can volunteer to spend a day at a City Gateway careers workshop, offering CV and interview advice as well as improving self-confidence, teamwork, communication and leadership skills.

WOMEN

IN IT

It’s no secret that women are underrepresented in the technology sector, so we’re doing our little bit to encourage more to pursue careers in IT and tech. We know that women bring diversity and valuable skills into the workplace, and having a mix of all genders, ages and backgrounds is an important part of building a successful company.

We want to encourage girls to break the male dominant stereotype and take advantage of a rewarding an exciting career path.

As part of this, we hold taster events for young girls to understand jobs in the industry and have a team of Just IT’ers dedicated to thinking up new ways to raise awareness and tackle the industry’s gender gap.
