About itison

itison is Scotland's leading online deals and events service, aiming to give their members amazing experiences at incredible restaurants, hotels, spas and events around the country.

Working from five offices, their ultimate aim is to excite their millions of members and put a smile on their faces every day.

The company’s mission, vision and values run through everything they do, from the team recruitment and onboarding process, to the way they deal with each other and the businesses they work with, and the way they interact with their members.
