"I like the open-door policy where staff have access to the Executive Team. There’s also flexibility to move around different jobs and gain new skills. Optivo is a place where you can be yourself.

The organisation is not just about buildings, it’s also about the people. I also really appreciate the opportunities we’re given to help make a positive difference in people’s lives through our charity, Fresh Visions.”
