Our offices are located to the west of Edinburgh city centre, just off off The City of Edinburgh Bypass, not far from the Gyle shopping centre. We have plenty of free parking on site and it’s easy to reach us both by bus and by tram (we’re less than 5 mins walk from either Gyle or Edinburgh Park tram stops). If you are joining us as a remote worker, then you’ll find it easy to reach both the airport and Edinburgh mainline train stations. Once you’re here we hope you find our offices a great place to work. We have spacious, well equipped workstations, lots of meeting room space and a well-stocked kitchen with fruit, biscuits, software drinks, ice creams and snacks freely available for everyone. We are working hard to make the PODFather office a nice place to be.
Joining PODFather is just the start of your journey. We take career progression, and employee development, seriously. Everyone within the business, across all teams, gets the benefit of an annual career development contribution to spend on external training or membership to an industry association. In addition, we actively encourage everyone here to try new things within the business, moving between teams to learn and develop new skills.
Benefits and perks
We offer a range of perks and benefits. In terms of your working day, we offer flexible working hours and with us all working from home we are geared up to provide high spec workstation and equipment to meet your homeworking needs. We also offer an extra holiday purchase scheme, sick pay scheme, group income protection and group life insurance to all our staff.
We are a sociable bunch and, when social distancing measures are not in place, there is nothing that we love than planning a social event. There is a monthly board game night in the office as well as regular external events which are subsidised by the company. These are a great excuse to get together with your teammates and show off your skills!
Flexible working sits at the heart of our employee wellbeing programme. We have recently conducted a full HR policy review which sees working at home remain a full-time option for all staff should they choose it. In addition, we have decided to keep the flexible working hours changes, first introduced during the pandemic, as standard, enabling staff to work on that all important work life balance.Colin McCreadie, Managing Director, PODFather
