joining the team
Join a collaborative team, learn at an extrodinary rate, and grow with us
We provide a highly supportive and social team environment coupled with high expectations. You will learn more, faster, and in more depth at an extraordinary rate. We provide education and active mentoring in subjects that will help you with an immediate problem, but also provide strategic education to help you grow in the role, or take on new responsibilities.
Our team includes people with experience from across multiple industries and technologies. We deliver small 1–2-week projects, support customer teams with 1-2 day workshops, and deliver multi-man-year projects.
We select on ability and enthusiasm combined with a delivery focus. We measure on outcomes against our values.
I completed several technical and non-technical training courses throughout my placement year with Responsiv and also achieved certification, which made me grow both as an individual and professional, contributing to my natural career progression. Life is not just about work and Responsiv make sure to remind people about of that occasionally through team-building events and activities.
What really made an impression with Responsiv was that the interview felt a lot more like a discussion. It really felt like they were trying to get to know me and my interests, rather than just ticking off boxes. In my experience, I found that to be rare. I did not hesitate when I got an offer to join the company.
You will need to be organised and able to prioritise work to deliver, prepared to put in long hours to assure your own knowledge as well as to deliver to customer expectation. You will be agile and flexible to respond to different needs of the company, from writing reports, programming, administrative work, mentoring, and anything else that needs to happen for us to be successful as a team. You take opportunities to learn, practice, challenge the status-quo in daily work.
You will gain great pleasure from learning new things, and have good technique for learning fast and assembling mental models that allow you to explain to others. Key skills that cannot be compromised are:
- Excellent written and spoken English, happy to research and write reports and insights
- A desire to deliver the best work in the available time and resources, and an attention to detail
- A real passion for the role, be it technical, administrative, sales, or cleaner
It’s your career – you have to own and drive it in the direction you choose.
We expect you to take responsibility and own delivery of projects, as well as to spot things that need to be done – and do them.
Our objective is to help technical people to become PI shaped. This means that our consultants (Specialists, Project managers, Managers) have a good breadth of skills and experience, combined with detailed knowledge of two subjects (products, industries, business areas). You are looking to make yourself more valuable as a person and employee to make yourself adaptable and a go-to person known for at least two subjects.
Administrative and Operational Roles
Attention to detail, flexibility and a desire to learn and grow in the role. We expect everyone to contribute and take an interest in what the company does, as well as to present to the company on their own work and interests.
Responsiv is a small company with big ideas. We want to grow, and we want our people to grow and develop with us. Our preference is to promote from within, and to help everyone be their best. Join in one role and move to another, join and grow, join and become the expert.
Responsiv believe that young people have an enthusiasm and understanding of the world that complements more established views. We put a great deal of effort into giving interns experience of working for a professional organisation, and of performing their chosen role.

Responsiv believe that experience and a lifetime of skills cannot be force grown and is needed to avoid false starts and assumptions. We also believe that everyone can learn and adapt, regardless of age and experience. We provide the same support to experienced hires as we do to graduates, albeit in a subtly different manner.
Our graduate scheme will give you everything you need to build a successful career: an interesting and challenging working environment alongside industry-leading training to ensure you have the skills to take your career wherever you want to go.
At Responsiv we are looking for individuals who are inquisitive and open-minded, who flourish as part of a team and who will be dedicated to our clients’ success. We take very seriously the idea that strong and lasting business relationships are built on a foundation of trust and mutual respect.
Whether you’re an experienced business consultant or a graduate looking for your first software development role, Responsiv will help you to make the most of your skills and experience, will provide you with opportunities for development and the chance to work on fascinating projects within market-leading organisations.
We provide excellent training and skills development and offer a varied and interesting work environment that can provide the opportunity to become a leading expert in integration, security, cloud infrastructure, or Artificial Intelligence. You will be joining a high performing team that is supportive and enjoys a high degree of freedom to truly address exciting problems and play with technology.
The Responsiv Associate programme is for Freelancers with their own company. It allows them to work directly for Responsiv on a fulltime or part time or ad-hoc basis to support our projects.
We have a framework agreement that includes a non-disclosure agreement. This allows us to discuss projects and make arrangements ahead of time. The framework has no commitments to engage. Each engagement is then controlled using a work order.
We also provide a zero-hours option for skilled people that do not have a company and want to work at their own convenience; for example to accomodate children, or to keep your hand in during retirement.
Responsiv organise Christmas and Summer events, and staff are encouraged to contribute with ideas and by organising social events that are nothing to do with the company. In the past we have been sailing in a three-day regatta, two-day BBQ events on a farm in Nottingham, including microlight flying and tractor driving, and much more. All you have to do is join in!
