Make Akita the next stage in your IT career. We have grown through our commitment to technical expertise and high standards of customer service. We regularly welcome new staff into IT jobs and wider operational roles who can demonstrate these qualities in their areas of expertise.
Who we are
From our offices in Kent, London and Surrey, Akita delivers proactive IT support and managed services to over 250 organisations. Our customers are predominantly located across London and the South East, but we also support their satellite offices right across the UK and internationally.
We are a proactive and dynamic company that inspires its staff to achieve their full potential and more. As such, we look to hire people across the organisation who are enthusiastic, creative in their problem solving, calm in their approach, and respectful in their dealings with customers and other members of the team.
Why join Akita?
Though a professional environment, Akita maintains a supportive and friendly culture. Staff are approachable at all levels of seniority and new ideas are welcomed. We also conduct regular employee satisfaction surveys to see how we can improve our staff’s working environment.
We recognise the skills, experience and characteristics of each individual. We support our staff’s continued professional development through internal training and, when relevant, additional courses and accreditations. There’s also plenty of scope for internal career progression and specialisation within the organisation.
Akita takes care of its staff. Representative of how we value our staff and the importance we place on maintaining a healthy work/life balance, we offer enhanced holiday entitlement of 32 days (including bank holidays) from the start with automatic increases after 3 years’ service. We also offer Contractual Sick Pay after six months (terms apply for both). Discretionary overtime is also available and staff are eligible for a pension scheme.
Additionally, to demonstrate how we appreciate our staff’s knowledge and connections, we offer an incentive scheme for staff who can recommend candidates for roles we’re recruiting for.
We’re also focused on the wider wellbeing of employees, and promote this in the following ways:
- A resident chef providing healthy meals at our Kent HQ.
- An eyecare scheme to look after our staff’s vision.
- Sit/stand desks helping staff to work in comfort.
- Refreshments (including tea, coffee and milk) are provided free of charge.
- Regular optional wellness events (past activities have included yoga and fitness sessions).
As an organisation we’re also committed to protecting the environment and helping the wider community. We have enviable sustainability and CSR credentials and are aiming to be carbon neutral within the next few years. We are also actively involved in the support of local charities and local youth sports.
