At Rethink we like to give back to society; whether that’s through job creation, creating brilliant work environments for our people, addressing the UK’s digital skills shortage, helping out our nominated charities or minimising our impact on the environment. Find out more about our commitments below.
Job creation at all levels.
We create jobs for anyone, from any background, at any level. Whether it’s undergraduates working in our team around their studies, or working parents who need to more evenly split their career and home life commitments, we welcome applications from anybody.
Creating brilliant working environments.
Whether it’s the aesthetics of our offices, designed to be sociable places in which work comes naturally, or the flexible working ethos we promote, we have cultivated brilliant working environments. Our team is offered every aspect of professional and pastoral support, with a training pot available to all colleagues to withdraw from.
Creating the South West’s happiest workplace.
Last year, our office in Bristol was crowned the South West’s Happiest Workplace.
The prestigious award was presented to the team after they showed judges just how innovative we are in maintaining our colleagues’ happiness; awards organiser Maxine Bennett, praised our company culture which she said “emphasises the importance of a healthy work-life balance”.
The award came just months after we opened our new Bristol in an awesome area of the city; we invested greatly in the space at Vintry House, creating an energising and bright workplace with natural daylight and a relaxed, fun atmosphere – the antithesis of a traditional recruitment agency environment.
Addressing the digital skills shortage.
We are active in our pursuit of a solution to the UK’s digital skills shortage. Via each of our brands we are working hard to ensure that there are enough well-equipped workers who can adapt to the digitalisation of modern businesses; whether it’s advising our RTM clients on training and nurturing their workforce, to our dedicated Digital Gurus brand who spend each day connecting businesses with the best candidates for digital roles.
Educating business leaders with #DigitalNorth
In 2016, our Digital Gurus in Manchester launched #Digital North – a group dedicated to people working within in the digital space – from FTSE 100 CEOs to freelance UXers, and from start-up tech directors to fresh-faced digital graduates.
The group now boasts hundreds of people from the digital and tech communities of the North; we bring them together at monthly events during which we not only advise and address the digital landscape and prevailing skills shortage, but also bring in digital superstars at the top of their game to give talks and presentations. Past speakers have come from businesses including The EWord, JD Williams and Amaze.

Working with the Diane Modahl Sports Foundation (DMSF)
Since 2011, Rethink has been a supporter of DMSF – a charity founded by former Olympian and Commonwealth gold medalist Diane Modahl. By supporting financially and pastorally, we’ve helped Diane bring almost 500 young people onto her programme each week, which empowers them and improves their skills on the track and in the classroom. “Rethink have been a consistently supportive and incredible partner for us; they’re helping us change the course of so many young people’s lives across Greater Manchester myself, my team and particularly the young people they support are extremely grateful.”
Minimising our impact on the environment.
We actively seek ways to minimise our environmental impact within the communities where we have facilities. We implement programmes that reduce waste, conserve resources and prevent pollution.
