Careers

The ethos ingrained within the company is be trusted partners of our customers.  We combine innovation, the latest thinking and leverage of our wide range of experiences to address their key challenges. This runs through all the work we deliver and our attitude to go the extra mile to do the right thing for the customer and end users.

As a Professional Services company, Helyx recognises that staff well-being and morale is fundamental to its development and continued success.  Working life at Helyx has a very family orientated feel with a strong ‘can do’ and team orientated approach. There are very little politics or hierarchical positioning; everyone and their opinions are valued no matter who they are from. The family feeling is reinforced by impromptu BBQs on the patio or company briefings that are twinned with an avalanche of pizza, healthy options available!  Staff regularly take the opportunity to meet socially and arrange outings to sports events, including mountaineering, cycling and sailing, music festivals or other entertainment.

It is no accident that the Company enjoys a particularly high retention rate, comfortably above any industry benchmark.  Staff, of course, do leave for personal and professional reasons, but we are pleased that in recent years a large proportion of the few that have left, have returned back to the fold.

This is all mixed with an appreciation that work needs to be as fun as it can be, the MD’s view is that ‘We spend half our life at work so it had better be good” and there is a clear recognition of maintain a good work life balance, Helyx tends to be a place of ‘work hard, play hard, family first’.

Why work for us?

There is substantial emphasis put on encouraging personal, professional development and career development, as well as harnessing innovation and new ideas of better ways to do things.  Whilst we build long term, multi-year trusted relationships with our clients and grow their and our technical capabilities; the company recognises that keeping these relationships is vital and therefore our staff requires a career structure that spans a full career.  There is no requirement to leave Helyx to achieve that next promotion, with all consultants assessed annually and promoted against a well-defined, multi-tiered, and fully transparent career ladder from Junior Consultant to Principal Consultant on an average two yearly basis.

Staff enjoy typical industry sector benefits including 25 days leave per year as well as substantial, above average, pension contributions and other company funded aspects such as Permanent Health Insurance, BUPA, local gym membership etc.

Above all is the key consideration that whether in GIS or data analytics, staff are surrounded by like-minded, supportive, sophisticated and experienced colleagues who share a strong ethos, a central vision and great attitude.
