Cybersecurity specialist ESET UK protects the digital lives of home and business computer users and aims to make the internet a safer place for children through its social purpose programme Safer Kids Online which provides educational materials to protect children from harm.

Founded in Bratislava, Slovakia in 1992, ESET has sales offices in San Diego, Prague, Buenos Aires and Bournemouth and supports a global distribution network in 200 countries with more than 110 million worldwide users. The UK operation employs 65 people in roles ranging from marketing to business development, technical support and finance.

ESET focuses on “on the job” learning and managers are committed to making sure their teams embrace a learning culture and a listening one with their views gathered through surveys and the staff-led Culture Club. When the group raised concerns about employees' mental health and wellbeing the firm responded with initiatives including setting up “Tea & Chat” sessions with mental health first aiders, sending employees ad hoc gifts in the post and supporting charity events.

ESET promotes a healthy work/life balance which recognises real-world demands and rewards hard work and exceptional performance with a range of incentives and benefits including the performance bonus scheme which is paid twice a year, private healthcare and a cycle to work scheme.
