Working
at The
Brilliant Club

We believe that having a great team and working culture is the most important ingredient in the charity’s success.

Working at The Brilliant Club – Affinity Groups

We currently have three Affinity Groups running at the charity, which are open to any member of staff. These are the Working Parents and Carers Network, REACH (Race, Ethnicity and Cultural Heritage) Network, and Spectrum (LGBTQ+ affinity group). Hear from group members and find out more about the affinity groups by watching the videos below.

Spectrum

All of our staff are really invested in the work that we do...and there is a real sense throughout the charity that people genuinely care about each other.

We are a living wage employer

In August 2021, we were accredited as a Living Wage Employer. Our Living Wage commitment will see everyone working at the charity receive a minimum hourly wage of £9.90 in the UK or £11.05 in London. Both rates are significantly higher than the government minimum for over 23s, which currently stands at £8.91 per hour. Find out more about the Living Wage here

  • We’ll consider flexible working requests on application, and from day one in your role
  • We have an increasing number of team members working flexible patterns and we’re excited to see that grow further
  • It’s not just working parents who work flexibly at The Brilliant Club – our flexible working team members include people who are completing PhDs while working, and those who want a bit more time for the rest of life in their week
  • We’re using the Working Families flexi-working toolkit to help us to understand what flexibility is possible for each role that we advertise

The biggest positive of flexible working for me has been the opportunity to explore different interests and learn new skills whilst also being able to do a job I really enjoy and work for an organisation I really value. I think that’s very rare and I feel very lucky!
