Our open culture encourages innovation
By celebrating autonomy and continuous development, our people are encouraged to make a difference from day one.
Cross-team collaboration is a key part of our culture. To support this, we reward ourselves with regular social events to bring people together. From bouldering and chocolate tastings to games nights and yoga classes, we are proud to have a culture that harnesses the importance of open communication, support and care for one another.
Our people get a great sense of achievement, satisfaction and wellbeing by being able to give something back through the support of a charity. We actively encourage everyone to engage with and contribute to our wider community.
We are proud to be corporate partners of The Christie Charitable Fund, matching the funding raised from our people taking part in sponsored events, raffles and direct payroll donations.
In 2020 and 2021 we were awarded the Silver Payroll Giving Award, celebrating a culture of giving in the workplace and making a difference together.
Our partnership with The Turing Trust helps to enhance the education of children and adults across Africa and contribute to an environmentally-friendly society. Founded by the family of Alan Turing, the charity uses technology to empower disadvantaged communities, providing students with refurbished IT equipment and educational software.

'A day in the life of'
I have worked at a number of companies that talk about people having a day a month for learning any development, Aquila Heywood is the first company I have worked for where this is a reality. There are great sessions put on by staff and occasional external speakers, plus time for focused self-learning that the day-to-day work just doesn’t allow for.
As an employer, we recognise that the health and wellbeing of our people is paramount to our success. We provide professional tools and support for any event that life may throw at us.
