Work, rest and play

We truly care about the parts of a team member’s life that make them the people they are. We don’t believe in sacrificing what’s important for work. And we know that well-rounded multi-dimensional people bring better ideas to the table.

We want Watson Young to be a part of our team’s life, not their whole life.

  • Bring your child to work in the school holidays
  • Hybrid working arrangements
  • ‘Play Days'
  • Flexible working hours.
  • Discounted fitness memberships
Prospering together

We understand that nurturing interpersonal relationships is one of the most important aspects of maintaining wellbeing. Creating opportunities for our team to be together both inside and outside our work context is a priority.

We embrace fun and play as essential to innovation and creativity. At Watson Young, we carve out opportunities for our team to ‘play’, whether this is a few hits on our table tennis table or bringing pets to work.

'Play Days' are an additional day of annual leave that we offer every team member. They can spend time doing something that they love. We understand that play creates the space for the best creative ideas.  

We work hard. We create even harder. We care. We grow. We enjoy.
