Because we’re lovely and we’ve got your back. No, really - we’re all about opportunities and will help every single member of the team to develop and build their skillset. While IT has a bit of a reputation as a haven for the sort of people who talk to cables and get hot under the collar when they’re confronted with a database, at the end of the day, we are a creative and collaborative bunch who bring a new way of thinking to a very corporate world.
Why work at Jigsaw24?

You’ll be working closely with our team and some of the world’s leading technology partners to attract new customers into the fold and identify gaps in existing accounts.
More about Jigsaw24
We’re definitely very different, and that’s shown in our approach to IT, our marketing, our offices, and our people (best to be honest about it…). Over the years, we have worked hard to make ourselves stand out from the competition, and that's because we're not afraid to explore new territory - we always encourage our team to develop their skills and get stuck into every aspect of the business. We also have a programme of flexible benefits (including a pension scheme, childcare vouchers and a cycle to work scheme) and an increasing number of holidays depending on the number of years you have worked for us.
“It’s such a friendly place to work (I should know – I’ve been here for nearly 18 years!) and everyone gets on well with each other. It really does feel like one big team.”
Tracey, Receptionist at Jigsaw24
"In just a few years, I've progressed from a junior to heading up the writing team. If you have a clear idea of the career you want, everyone here will help you get there."
Ade, Copywriter Manager at Jigsaw24
"Not a day goes by at Jigsaw24 without one of the army of baking enthusiasts knocking up some incredible concoction. Yummo"
Shariff, Copywriter at Jigsaw24
"I've worked in a number of departments over the years. And I've loved every one of them. The people here are what makes it: everyone always just chips in to help each other."
Vic, Design Manager at Jigsaw24
To see it is to believe it. There's a Tardis in the office, Astroturf and a picnic table in the staffroom, and a shrine to Sid James in a cupboard. That said, there's also a 30,000 sq. ft. warehouse, room for our 140 employees (including all our solutions experts, an in-house tech support team, marketing department and directors), a series of themed meeting rooms, and a product demo room complete with its own green screen wall. Barely a day goes by without something changing...
Below we’ve run through what to expect during the interview and included some of our most commonly asked questions, but if you have any burning queries, now’s the time to ask them – email HR@Jigsaw24.com.
For us the interview is as much about finding out what kind of person you are as it is about the skills you have. We’re always looking out for people that have the right attitude to help us get to where we want to be as a company. A typical interview will include:
• A tour of the building – keep an eye out for the pigeons.
• Questions from Julia about your goals, how you deal with challenges, etc. so we can get to what kind of person you are.
• A session with representatives from the management team, where they’ll ask you about your skills in relation to the job you’re applying for.
There is a psychometric test that’s designed to look at how you solve problems, but don’t worry; you'll be given plenty of time to complete it and we've all been there (they still employed me!). It’s a Jigsaw24 tradition, and has been part of our interview process since the dawn of time.
If there’s one thing we’re not, it’s a company of suits. Everyone in the office wears what they feel comfortable in, as long as it’s work appropriate – no shorts or mini skirts, for example.
No, but it is a big bonus, and easily the way to our hearts. If you’re runner up on Great British Bake Off 2011, for example, you’ll have no problem fitting in.

Life in Nottingham
Everyone knows Nottingham for Robin Hood, shopping and a great nightlife, but there's a lot more to the city than that - from great links to London to cutting edge cultural events. And the Jigsaw24 office is situated just outside the city centre, just a short tram or bus ride away.
