// Life at SCHQ

We’re a fun team at SCHQ, fuelled by tea and biscuits – and the occasional G&T! We’re busy, with sections of the company spanning the adventure travel, TV and film, COVID-19 screening, risk management, creative production and magazine industries, there is no such thing as a ‘normal’ day.

The dog-friendly office is situated in South Bristol within walking distance of shops, town and a park, with many of the team choosing to walk or cycle to work – not exactly a hardship in the South-West’s adventure capital and ‘Best Place to Live in the UK’!

Our informal office is populated by ‘outdoorsy-types’ with hobbies ranging from climbing to cycling, horse riding to hiking, and surfing to skiing – and our annual staff days out often reflect these interests with previous trips including coasteering, SUPing and a mountain-bike pub crawl.

  • Competitive salary dependent on experience (pro-rata to part-time hours)
  • Annual leave of 20 days plus bank holidays (pro-rata to part-time hours)
  • Generous outdoor kit discounts
  • Pension, cycle to work scheme and options to request specific benefits
