halow is committed to equal opportunities and values diversity in its workforce.
• 30 days annual leave (incl Bank Holidays), workplace pension and many other great employee benefits.
• Fully paid training and ongoing career development.
• An employee assistance programme and a supportive and caring team to work with.
