About Arena Group Limited


What is it like to work for Arena Group Limited

Leadership
Leadership
The Leader of the organisation provides an open door to anyone in the business. He is extremely accessible and is genuinely interested in the views and opinions of every member of staff. Perhaps more importantly, he is prepared to act on these views and opinions and always provides feedback.

Wellbeing

The most important aspect in this respect is the maintenance of staffing levels. At a time when many organisations have been asking staff to do considerably more, Arena have continued to increase staff counts across the organisation. This means that pressure on individuals is minimised, the likelihood of work related stress is reduced and employees are able to keep a healthy work/life balance. Arena have also moved their North West operation into brand new premises, refurbished major parts of the headquarters building, extended and refreshed the Derbyshire base and drastically improved the North Leeds logistics base. The result is a more spacious, modern and enjoyable working space and atmosphere for the bulk of their employees.

There is currently no upper limit to the number of fundraising activities matched in any given year.
