FreeAgent's online accounting software brings everything together, from invoices and expenses to VAT, payroll and tax return filing.
We’re building a diverse, high-performing, happy and collaborative team
We’re a friendly bunch with a single goal bringing us all together: making small businesses happier and more successful by putting them in control of their finances. We also work hard to make FreeAgent a great place to work.
How we work
We want to give everyone the opportunity to shape and influence where we are going. Open quarterly planning sessions keep us focussed on strategic objectives and our weekly Town Hall meeting means you always know what’s going on across the company.
Where we work
If you work from our Edinburgh city centre office, you can enjoy our pool table, balcony, catered Friday lunches, drinks fridge, fresh fruit, coffee machine and much more! Our office is full of both social spaces and quiet places.
There are a range of FreeAgent clubs, activities (and Slack channels!) to help you get to know your colleagues better. From Monday running club and Wednesday yoga to our board games night and our #ot-cats Slack channel - there’s plenty around here for you to get stuck into!
Roughly 20% of our team work remotely and we make sure those colleagues feel really included. From daily video calls just for chit chat, to our huge variety of Slack channels - we make every effort to make everyone feel welcome.
Right from the very start, our founders Ed, Olly and Roan were uncompromising on their vision of creating the kind of workplace culture they’d always wanted for themselves - somewhere you can be yourself and do your best work.
Be empowered to tackle big hairy audacious goals, while accepting that we’re smarter together.
We relish accountability as our mandate for putting a dent in the Universe.
Life moves pretty fast. We work hard, and things get bumpy sometimes, but you should be enjoying the ride.
Stay curious, keep learning and be excellent to each other.
Be proud of it!
Sweat the details, be bold in your ambition and innovate by pushing the boundaries.
Above all, understand how you’re helping the customer.
Somewhere you can be yourself
We want people to feel nurtured and at ease to be themselves, so they feel empowered and engaged to do their best work. We value our diverse team, and the variety of experiences and backgrounds only make us stronger.
We work hard to make FreeAgent a fantastic place to work!
We provide a comprehensive package of employee benefits, which have been carefully selected to protect you, to promote healthy lifestyles, and to give you peace of mind.
33 days holiday
We'll also add an extra day for every year you're here (to 43 days). Public holidays included and up to five days a year unpaid if you need a little extra.
Private medical plan
You'll get comprehensive private medical insurance and access to a health cash plan covering a range of healthcare expenses.
Company pension scheme
All FreeAgent employees are welcome to join our pension scheme. We'll match your contributions up to a maximum of 5% of your salary.
We hope it will never be needed, but you’ll have added protection with our lump-sum life assurance benefit.
In case you are unable to work due to long-term incapacity, you’ll have income protection insurance.
24/7 access to free, confidential support and advice on a range of everyday issues including health and wellbeing, childcare, money, and legal issues.
To ease the cost of childcare, we can help you to purchase tax-free childcare vouchers through the government scheme.
Cycle to work scheme
Fancy a canal-side cycle to work? We’ll help you purchase your bike and equipment tax free, through the government scheme.
Save money on a wide range of purchases - from half price gym membership and cinema tickets, to bargain holidays and phone contracts.
