Employee development at our core

Each member of the Cambridge Spark team brings their own unique strengths to play a part in this work and is proud to grow with us as we venture on this journey together. As an education business, development is core to our culture, and we actively support employees to upskill with us through our Python Academy and support on role-specific training. 

We are a fast-growing business, with headcount doubling year on year, which means there is plenty of room for career progression. We actively seek to help existing employees develop in their roles and play to their strengths.

We are a remote-first company and hire across the UK - we believe that online learning provides our clients with maximum flexibility, and remote working provides that same flexibility for our team. We currently have team members across every home nation and as far afield as the Shetland Islands! For those that prefer the office, we do have a modern office at Kings Cross in London which also hosts our regular team events and socials.

We are a remote-first company, providing the software and kit to enable flexibility to work anywhere in the UK, including from home, a cafe, shared workspace or the option of our office in Central London.

We offer you one of the best private healthcare packages in the UK through Vitality, this includes a cash plan to support expenses for optical, dental, physiotherapy and multiple healthcare-related discounts.

Flexible holiday entitlement

We understand the importance of rest, relaxation, and personal time. Therefore, all employees are entitled to 25 days of holiday per year, in addition to the flexibility to substitute standard up to 5 days of UK bank holidays with alternative days that better suit their personal or cultural celebrations. This flexibility ensures that our team members can make the most of their time off in a way that's most meaningful to them.

Celebrate your birthday

Birthdays are milestones worth celebrating. To make your special day even brighter, we offer a day off on your birthday, on us. This is in addition to your standard holiday allowance, ensuring you have the opportunity to celebrate with those who matter most.

Holiday buyback scheme

We recognise the importance of achieving a harmonious balance across different aspects of life. To support this, we offer our employees the option to buy back up to an additional 10 days of holiday per year. This initiative is part of our commitment to providing flexibility and promoting well-being within our team.

We believe in the power of giving back to the community and supporting causes that are close to our hearts. To empower our employees in making a positive impact, we are proud to offer 1 day off per year dedicated to volunteering.

This benefit encourages you to step away from your daily responsibilities and contribute your time and skills to a cause you are passionate about. Whether it's helping at a local charity, participating in community clean-up efforts, or supporting educational programmes, this day is for you to make a difference in the way that means the most to you.

Understanding the importance of physical and mental well-being, we offer a pre-tax wellness allowance of up to £30 per month. This allowance gives you the flexibility to choose the best way to maintain your health and wellness.

Whether you're interested in a gym membership, fitness or yoga classes, or prefer to use wellness apps such as Calm, Headspace, or Fitbit, this allowance supports your active lifestyle and mental well-being. We encourage you to invest in what truly helps you stay active, balanced, and healthy.

All of our employees and immediate family have full access to our confidential employee assistance programme providing support 24/7.

We know the importance of supporting our employees through life's significant moments. That's why we're proud to offer enhanced maternity and paternity leave policies, designed to give you the time and financial support you need to welcome a new member into your family.
