Here’s Camilla, our HR Director. She’s all for development. In the early days, HR will work with your line manager to ensure you enjoy an effective induction.
After 3-months, your objectives will be set and your performance, progress and development will then be monitored through our Performance Development Review (PDR) process.
We work hard to give Gliders plenty of room for progression. This works really well when we know what you’re looking to achieve in your career; it’s a two way process. We advertise our vacancies internally, so you’ll always have the opportunity to try your hand with a role that stretches you. The better you perform in your current role, the better your chances of promotion, or even a sideways move if you see something you think might fit you better. We promote the use of secondments to encourage people to try something new. We launched Glide University in 2022 which gives employees access to all sorts of skills and leadership training, and for some, there is even the opportunity to undertake an MBA.
Employee voice is important to us, and we regularly use our Pulse Surveys to hear your views. There is also a weekly opportunity to hear our CEO talk, and to ask him questions in “Teams with Tim”. We were proud to achieve IIP accreditation in 2022 and we have an exciting people journey ahead which we hope you will be keen to join us on.
At Glide, brand values aren’t just words on a wall. They are at the heart of our culture and shape how we behave, how we recruit and how we support each other and our customers.
Each value is brought to life through our behaviours. Our behaviours make it clear how to speak to our colleagues and our customers, how we act towards each other and how we define being a ‘Glider’.
Like a family, we value togetherness, put the group before ourselves, welcome diversity and always work hard to make sure everyone feels like they belong.
We dare to do things a little differently. We believe in each other and inspire the people around us to push themselves out of their comfort zones, to do things with courage and conviction, to grab life by the horns and to have total confidence in themselves.
If we fall down on customer experience, nothing else we do matters. That’s because customer loyalty is hard won and easily lost. The difference boils down to caring about the things our customers care about, always taking the time to make life simpler for them and going out of our way to connect and give them more than they’d expect.
We’re no ordinary company, and our culture reflects that: we believe that having fun, getting on with each other and not taking life too seriously is just as important as working hard.
It’s about more than hard work and graft – we never rest on our laurels. We are an unstoppable team that know we can always do better and more than what we achieved last week, month or year.
Staying open-minded, defying predictable ways of doing things, outsmarting the competition, and cracking on with enthusiasm and positivity is how we approach everything, every day.

Our employees say…
Who better to hear from than your future colleagues? Here’s a selection of what our team has to say about working for Glide.
I joined Glide in March 2021 as PA / Office Manager and I am so glad that I did. The culture here is brilliant, the people are great and everyone cares and you really feel that throughout the business. I love that I have so much autonomy in my role, that I feel respected. I am now making a move into HR, Glide are supporting my CIPD qualification. I am delighted that in such a short period I am progressing and developing my skills.
There are not many companies that give you the autonomy in your role that Glide does. It’s a business that allows you to put into place great ideas and make impactful decisions. Glide recognises the need for people to develop and progress in.
Since joining Glide last year, I have had the opportunity to progress in to another role that is allowing me to further develop my skills and gain more experience. It’s great to have the autonomy to make decisions and do what I need to do, to get the job done.
Glide really is a fabulous place to work, it’s a large organisation with a small organisation feel, everyone is happy to help. It’s a company with real innovation and strategy and the core values are encompassed daily.
I had no previous experience in Marketing but I was supported to take my marketing role and Glide has continued to support my growth and development with PR training, various courses and goals to undertake a CIM course to add to my repertoire. Glide is dedicated to the professional development of all of their employees, and it is common for them to support their staff in this way.
