We also have an unlimited holiday policy, so you can take the time you need to do your thing outside of work.

Salary

 
Ah, the age old question of salary. Look, we are parents, carers, home owners, car owners, loan owners.....we know there's a number that you have to achieve. But we are also super passionate about our culture and our values and know that these only come to life through the people that live them.

So what we would hate is to put a number on here that stops you from applying. That you perceive to be too high or too low. So you don't apply and we don't speak. You might miss an opportunity that changes your life and we might miss the person that changes our business. So get in touch and let's have a chat!! There's flexibility and common sense to be found we promise!

How to apply

Please send a copy of your CV with a covering letter / email to: hello@collctiv.com. We look forward to learning more about you!
