I realised not only do we recruit great people, we support and develop our teams so everyone can maximise their potential. We see their ambitions and their potential and we support them to be the best they can be. From training to flexible working, we give our people the tools and room to grow. It’s key to our success.

It’s why so many of our colleagues stay with us. They’re in it for the long run and ambitious to develop their career with us. And we’re here to ensure we give them everything they need to grow. It’s why people stay and even when they go, they come back!

I’m proud of our people. Their passion for what we do and commitment to making a difference. I’m proud that 85% of our colleagues are satisfied with Optivo as an employer. I’m proud that we have amazing people who deliver excellence and that Optivo has been the place for them grow their careers."
