What is it like to work for Digital Gurus

Digital Gurus provide industry leading external training for all team managers and directors through Elite Leaders. This great programme is a peer-led mentoring group that not only challenges their managers in their way of thinking, but also provides them the opportunity to step away from their desk and focus on what is most important. They get to listen to and interact with some great industry leaders on a bi-monthly basis. With ongoing pastoral care, they have seen individuals evolve their leadership skills. In January 2015, the company were lucky enough to secure Marcus Childs, who is - in their opinion - one of the best motivational speakers on the UK circuit. He hosted a ‘mindfulness’ session with their consultants, clients, and candidates, helping them to face challenges with positivity and to remember that they have the choice in how they let things affect them.
Wellbeing

The company have an incentivised lunch club where £13K worth of placements in the month sees their employees wined and dined at a top London restaurant with at least 2 directors each month, as well as helping them qualify for the company quarterly. A favourite of theirs is just being able to have fun and take the team out to the pub for an afternoon, a shopping trip, or an impromptu lunch as a reward for all the hard work. It’s much easier to do this when all are doing well, and the team understands that if the company does well they will do well too. They love a reason to celebrate and have worked hard to fuel their company’s culture of competition, achievement and excellence, whilst retaining its community feel and an environment where everyone feels included. Each week, the teams vote for the DG Hero - the person they feel has lived and breathed their values above & beyond - and they take a cheeky snap shot of them for the wall! Coupled with the annual Golf, Fifa, Darts, Sports day and Ping Pong tournament, there are always new champions to be found!

Every month they hold a DG family lunch where all employees sit together to enjoy a free lunch on the company followed by a quiz. All quiz teams are mixed, allowing employees who may never directly cross over in their field of work to spend time together and build relations. The company also encourage their team managers to open up their training sessions to the wider business as well as their team, which gives their employees different opportunities and influences that may help them in their day-to-day role.
