Medichecks' vision is to be part of everyone's journey to better health.

The company that pioneered direct-to-consumer blood testing in the UK wants to change the way people engage with their health by providing them with insights and data that put them in control. Its health testing platform now powers almost 500 clinics, pharmacies and health practitioners and it plans to expand over the next three years.

The Nottinghamshire small firm, which was founded in 2002, employs medics, designers, developers and communicators who are passionate about helping people live longer, healthier lives.

As part of its growth plan, it aims to recruit people with the skills and experience that can help its development and welcomes those with fresh ideas.

The workplace has an intrinsically fun culture , it says, and employee benefits include a company pension, 25 days' holiday, health testing, flu jabs and eye tests.

Medichecks got involved in blood tests when its co-founder Helen Marsden was surprised how difficult it was to purchase a blood test online. She wanted to make it possible for anyone to be able to get personal health insights with an affordable, convenient service. Since then, Medichecks has evolved from an online catalogue of blood tests to a consumer product. Its tests are sold in Boots and Holland & Barrett and the firm is working with the NHS to bring remote testing to its patients.
