Our Perks & Benefits

We aim to support our team both personally and professionally by creating a workplace that is both stimulating and enjoyable.

Flexa-certified perks and benefits

Flexible working hedgehog lab is embraced by recognising that all staff have different needs and that those needs can change.

Our culture is built on trust and autonomy: we want our staff to be happy and relaxed when working for hedgehog lab. We have dog-friendly offices in Newcastle, but moved to a remote-first approach as a result of the pandemic – most of our employees are happy to work from home! This also means that we’re open to and hire team members from all over the UK and beyond.

We can also offer excellent benefits, including flexible working, part-time contracts, unlimited annual leave, access to free therapy sessions and financial well-being services and enhanced parental leave.

36 days paid holiday

Although different benefits apply to our international teams, for our UK-based team we offer 28 days of holiday plus bank holidays. Work-life balance is very important to refresh and ensure you are fully rested.

Flexible Working Environment

We understand that not one approach fits everyone. Whether they are working from the office or home, we fully support our team in whichever way they prefer to work.

Enhanced parental policy

Our parental policy offers enhanced maternity, paternity and adoption pay above the statutory amount. This encourages new parents to take more time off work to bond with their children and be with their families.

Bippit Financial wellbeing services

It’s important that people have the insight and education to overcome their financial concerns and we offer access to a financial well-being solution to help

Annual personal Wellbeing budget plus 2 days

Diversity & Inclusion

Having diversity within our team is integral to doing our best work and creating the most innovative products for our customers. We will continue to foster an inclusive culture at the lab where everyone can be their authentic selves and thrive.

We encourage people from underrepresented backgrounds to apply to our roles and we don’t discriminate based on race, colour, religion, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, nationality, genetics, disability or age. We are a family-friendly employer with a culture based on trust, autonomy and flexibility.

Mental health support

Mental health is extremely important to us. Our partner Spill is a Slack-integrated therapy app available to all our staff at no extra cost. Spill provides mental health support that our employees can use through their Slack.
