Opencast is a fast-growing technology consultancy specialising in designing, building and running user-centered digital and technology solutions with purpose.
At Opencast we believe in making life better through the power of people and technology. We aim to deliver human-focused solutions to the challenges our clients face – harnessing the potential of people and working together to ensure technology is done in the right way.
Our work for government develops services that support critical national infrastructure and help millions of citizens through tax, benefit and support services.
Opencast is committed to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion across all of our work. We aim to create a human-focused environment to enable all identities, backgrounds and ways of thinking to succeed. We do this through processes that create opportunities for our people to be seen and heard, at all levels.
We value growth and encourage our people to develop new knowledge and skills. Our team of 'people experience partners' support our people’s personal development. We offer a training budget, learning and development tools, have a mentoring scheme, and run regular events on technical and social issues.
Opencast encourages our people to follow whatever career path suits them, whether internal progression through their existing area of practice, or a non-linear ‘squiggly career’ developing into a new discipline.
Opencast’s vision is to make a positive impact on society through solutions that are simpler, more sustainable and fairer for all. We have an ongoing commitment to address mental and physical health, inclusion and wellbeing, planet and environment, and social mobility.
Opencast believes strongly in the value of working together, face-to-face. We offer flexibility to enable our people to have a healthy work/life balance – and do not require them to be in an office between certain hours or on set days.
At Opencast we are not remote first – we are hybrid. Hybridworking means our people will be in the right place at the right time todeliver their work, taking into account the requirements of their clients and teamalike.
We have office hubs in Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds and London, aswell as a headquarters in Newcastle upon Tyne. This means our people could workfrom these, a client site or from home.
We offer a competitive pension, health cash plan, share options and discretionary bonus. We have flexible working hours, 25 days' holiday plus a generous training budget.
Open cast is committed to providing the best support for our people. Our people experience partners help ensure that people have someone advocating for their needs and supporting them every step of the way.
