Careers

As a team, we are passionate about quality and innovation and we’re always looking for great people who can help us push further.

If that sounds like you, have a look below at all of the positions we currently have open at Playground. If you can’t see a position that’s right for you, we welcome speculative applications. Just find one of the discipline-specific speculative roles below and apply using that.

We offer highly competitive salaries, plus a contributory pension scheme, private health care, and a childcare vouchers scheme. We operate flexible working hours, and all Playground staff receive 25 days annual leave per year, plus statutory holidays. In addition to holiday allowance, all new staff benefit from two Duvet Days per year, which can be taken at short notice, and will accrue an additional Duvet Day for each year of service, up to a maximum of five.
