Working at Matrix
So what’s the magic ingredient that makes Matrix a great place to work? The answer is in our people and culture. Everything we do starts and ends with this. If you hire great people and nurture an amazing culture, then the rest just falls into place. Our success has always been and will continue to be, a product of having these two key ingredients in place.
Our values are part of our DNA. They guide the way we work with each other, our customers and our suppliers.
We’re a team of the brightest doers, smartest thinkers and most talented makers in the business. Our optimism and can do attitude allows us to be confident in our ideas and overcome obstacles. We embrace agility and focus on the positive results of change.
We’re naturally inquisitive and open to learning through new experiences. We understand the importance of feedback and use this to seek new and better ways of working.
We deliver work we’re proud of by treating the business like it’s our own. Our unique team spirit ensures that we’re thoughtful in our approach, we take accountability and encourage others to do the same.
We put a high value on integrity and authenticity by honouring our commitments, showing kindness, respect and encouraging collaborative and supportive relationships with everyone that we work with.
Our core values go hand in hand with our competency framework which guide our decisions on recruitment, developing our people and recognising and rewarding success.
We’re always looking for great people to join us, so if our values match yours, get in touch by emailing your CV to Careers@thisismatrix.com.

Our people, processes and partnerships are at the heart of what we do. We work hard but whistle a happy tune whilst we’re at it. Our reputation and our growth are based on consistently delivering to a set of values which we embody in the way we treat each other as colleagues, work with our partners, and do business with our suppliers and clients. The Matrix ‘no-fail’ philosophy is entirely down to the fact we are fair and responsible, reliable, experienced and just really positive people committed to delivering great products to our clients.
Matrix Employee Benefits
Matrix is committed to promoting a positive workplace culture by rewarding people for the great work they do. Here are just some of our fantastic benefits you’ll get when you join us.
Your Matrix Journey
Joining a new company can be daunting. You don’t know anyone, everything is new and you’re not really sure how you’re going to fit in with the existing team and culture. Well, the good news is, you don’t have to worry; we hire a very special type of person and we’ll help set you up for success by sharing lots of detail on the ‘why’, the ‘who’ and of course the ‘how’.
At Matrix, we believe effective training is a business necessity that helps team members develop the essential skills to be successful in their role. Training can range from our comprehensive onboarding programme, sending employees on secondments to our international offices, mastering new procedures and reinforce existing protocols, through to upskilling in technical or soft skills. We leverage our internal expertise to deliver regular lunch and learns in addition to utilising external expertise.
We also believe it’s important to have quarterly check-ins with your manager to discuss your strengths, challenges, 360 feedback and provide focus for the next 3 months. We aim to tailor our learning strategy to be aligned with the training needs of the individual and our overall mission.
Get ready for what we hope will be the best job you’ve ever had!
