    I have been working at Defaqto full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Defaqto recognises the need for employee engagement and to keep things not just about work.

    There have been multiple activities aimed at wellness and mindfulness that have continued during the homeworking period.

    The transition from office to remote working this year had been managed very well.

    The pension scheme and free financial advice are very good

    Cons

    The office itself is a converted warehouse so suffers from space and heating issues. It's in a very quiet village location so wouldn't suit someone who wants to work somewhere with lots of local facilities.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Defaqto (Haddenham, South East England, England) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I had a formal meeting with my line manager, who discussed what I wanted from a job, which all met with how Defaqto operates. Then I filled out a personality questionnaire to see if I would fit with the team.

    Didn't think we would still be in lockdown and in tier 4 for Christmas, but never mind. We have been lucky enough to have some fun social events over teams thanks to our amazing Social Committee. I have shared some pics and of our Star Team Award. Merry Christmas everyone, here's to a better 2021!

  • Wow! What a difference a few months makes, our staff are doing really well and have adjusted to our new 'normal' for now. I have uploaded a photo of one of our lovely members of staff working from home and enjoying the sunshine and fresh air.
