In addition to a competitive salary, we provide an extensive range of benefits. These include 25 days holiday per annum (excluding Bank Holidays) increasing with service, private medical insurance, an employee assistance programme, life assurance cover, EV car scheme and a pension plan – you can learn more about these in the “Our Benefits” section.
Employees can also enjoy free parking, tea, coffee and daily fruit. Yearly events are held in the summer and at Christmas, with gifts also provided on Valentine’s Day, Easter and at Christmas.

We have partnered with Standard Life to offer all staff a work-based Self Invested Personal Pension (SIPP) scheme, which Microlise provides an employer contribution to of 4% currently.
We actively encourage personal development and support individuals to grow with our business, whether through on-the-job and internal learning or via external professional qualifications. Where possible, we look to promote internally before advertising positions externally. Due to the growth of the company is experiencing, there are many opportunities for development.
At Microlise we recognise that everyone’s personal circumstances are different. To ensure a positive work/life balance we do offer hybrid and flexible working options to individuals where possible, such as part-time working, flexi-time and job sharing. Different roles allow for flexible working in different ways, but it is something we are happy to consider.
The process differs depending on the types of role, however a standard process is to initially undertake a telephone interview, followed by a video or face-to-face interview at our Head Office in Eastwood.
You may be asked to complete a task or personality profile depending on the role applied for, in addition to being asked about any relevant previous experience and knowledge you have gained.
In some cases you may be asked to return for another interview and be given a tour of the building and the chance to meet your potential new colleagues.
There are different dress codes for different areas of the business. For customer facing roles we of course expect smarter dress, but otherwise we have a casual approach to work-wear. All staff joining Microlise have the option to receive a number of Microlise polo shirts and a jacket, but both receiving these and wearing them is very much optional!
Microlise is a Two Ticks Disability Symbol holder, demonstrating our commitment to providing equal opportunities to people with disabilities. If you require any reasonable adjustments to support you, there will be opportunities to highlight these during your recrutiment process, however please do not hesitate to reach out to a member of the Recruitment Team.
Your regular hours will be outlined in your employment contract, but there may be rare occasions where you will be required to work overtime or outside of typical hours.
We pride ourselves on being a friendly and fun place to work, with a number of social and engagement activities held throughout the year. These may be departmental or company-wide, but for example a company BBQ is held every summer and a Christmas lunch is provided at the end of each year. We are also heavily invested in the mental and physical wellbeing of our teams, and have regular wellbeing initiatives throughout the year e.g. Steptember whereby we encourage employees to get their steps in and have some friendly competition along the way.
While no official staff reward system is currently in place, staff members who go ‘above and beyond’ are recognised for their efforts and are rewarded appropriately. At the end of every year company awards are presented, recognising individual or departmental achievements, and additional schemes for rewarding employees are currently being developed.
A formal salary review is conducted once every year, working in conjunction with a yearly appraisal. Microlise is always keen to reward employees who make a difference, so on occasions salary increases may be awarded outside of this structure, however it is in place to ensure the salaries of all staff are reviewed as a minimum once every year.
This very much depends on your role at Microlise. Some of our field service engineers and sales representatives, for example, travel regularly within the UK and overseas to support our partners and help expand our business. Other roles do not require any travel.
Whilst Microlise makes every effort to directly source candidates for our live roles, we do have a very small preferred supplier list for hard to fill roles.
We are not looking for additional support from agencies and therefore don’t accept any speculative emails, or cold calls and approaches to reception or our managers.
