DCSL Software design bespoke, intelligent and cost-effective web, desktop and mobile applications that help streamline processes for businesses as well as creating new revenue streams for start-ups and established businesses.

Although it started more than 25 years ago, it began to expand rapidly when then employee, Nick Thompson, now the CEO, purchased the business from DCSL's previous owners. His plan was grow the company as quickly as possible whilst still delivering a consistently high-quality service and maintaining an enviable working environment.

It now has almost 100 employees, from juniors through to software industry veterans, who enjoy numerous benefits such as life insurance, critical illness cover, health care plans, best-in-class maternity and paternity leave, cycle to work schemes, additional annual leave and tastecard+ memberships.

DCSL takes great care over selecting new recruits, particularly managers, who are entered into the Ella 100 Days system before they join. This is aimed at providing the inspiration and practical tools needed to succeed in the first 100 days in a senior role.

Great value is put on showing appreciation to employees for hard work. DCSL has a monthly 'Unsung Hero Award' in which every employee is asked if a colleague has been their 'Unsung Hero' for that month. The board of directors scores every response and the employee with the highest score gets the accolade, receiving a trophy and vouchers.
