At The Access Project, we’re collaborative, supportive and inclusive. We regularly have opportunities for people to share their ideas in various working groups, generating strong teamwork across the organisation. In our last staff engagement survey, 90% said they’re proud to tell people where they work.

The vision of our people strategy is to enable and inspire all employees to achieve, grow, succeed and thrive. We have a wide range of benefits that make The Access Project a rewarding place to work. We are a Living Wage Employer because we believe that our colleagues deserve a wage which meets everyday needs, and we offer a London Weighting Allowance for roles based in London.

Staff on our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion committee are implementing key initiatives to build an inclusive culture and we have gained Disability Confident Level 1 accreditation and Mindful Employer accreditation.

I joined The Access Project in 2022 as Salesforce and Systems Manager looking after our CRM system as the sole administrator. Since then, I’ve been empowered, encouraged, and supported to grow and develop within the organisation. I’m proud to have progressed to my current role of Head of CRM Systems, building both my team and my skillset along the way.”
