Olly planned and managed an event after only three days with us – responsibility which would have taken months to earn in another agency.

How we do it
In recent years, we’ve taken time to learn from our team what they think makes Rapiergroup a great place to work. After all, happy employees deliver the best experiences for our clients.
Based on individual feedback, we boiled it down to four key factors. If they resonate with you, we want to hear from you.
No-one wants to be micromanaged. In recent focus groups, feeling trusted and empowered emerged as the top factor our employees value about working at Rapiergroup.
We know that work is only one of many plates each of us is spinning. That’s why our flexible hours and home working policy are so highly rated in staff surveys, and a key reason talented people choose to work at Rapiergroup. (Along with our location, outside of London!)
In their feedback, our employees tell us that colleagues’ straightforward and fun approach to projects makes us a joy to work with. Creating a positive environment that people enjoy coming to is a priority and reality for each of us.
Personal development and growth are key reasons people join us. We’re really proud to have achieved a Gold Investors in People award, confirming our leadership and management abilities and commitment to supporting individual growth.
Giving back to our team
Working in conferences and events means we have to be flexible to meet our clients’ needs. Why wouldn’t we offer the same flexibility to our team?
Our values and culture
With a reputation for results and secure financial backing, the future is bright for Rapiergroup. But our employees care about more than that, describing Rapiergroup as a great place to work.
We challenge our team to get the best from them, and more importantly, to help all employees achieve their personal goals and career plans.
Our approach to work is flexible. With offices in Ware and Towcester and the ability to work from home in most roles, our team don’t face a daily commute into London – giving them more time to do the things they love. We work hard to plan your workload with you, avoiding reactive situations and unplanned overtime. Moreover, we also offer all our staff flexible start and finish times.
Finally, our team tell us they love working here for the support they get from colleagues and their managers. Egos are out; instead, we focus on service excellence and jobs well done. We know our employees value being trusted and empowered. At Rapiergroup, everyone has to be prepared to roll up their sleeves and get their hands dirty.
In addition to challenging, enjoyable work, our employee reward programme includes:
Flexible working around core hours, plus working from home
The opportunity to own our success through KPI achievement schemes and profit share
25 days annual holiday (plus bank holidays)
We also offer time off in lieu, following events during non-office hours
Competitive private pension, life assurance and childcare voucher schemes for all employees
Perkbox benefits for every employee
