Our principles

Our core company values are the essence of who we are as a business. We are committed to building a workplace where our team enjoys a positive work/life balance, feels safe and are confident to speak out about their mental health and know we will be there to support them.

We value diversity and are committed to creating an inclusive culture where everyone is able to be themselves and reach their full potential. We are not as diverse as we’d like to be, but as we grow we want our people to be every bit as diverse and authentic as the audiences we create content for. Our core values are:

  • Playfulness - We believe that play unlocks ideas and we take our work seriously (but not ourselves).
  • Trust - We do the right thing - even when no one is looking.
  • Kindness - We are always friendly, generous, considerate and honest with each other.
  • Determination - We are obsessed with being exceptional

Company benefits

  • Flexible/Hybrid Working. We offer flexible hours and lots of opportunities to work from home – or wherever you happen to be!
  • Time Off. We don’t count holidays. We want you to be well rested and at the top of your game, that’s why we offer unlimited paid annual leave.
  • Wellness. Mental health is a top priority to us. We have a Mental Health partnership with Vitality Health giving you access to therapy and counselling, and your immediate family access to a huge range of resources and we are continuously working towards creating a culture where people are confident to speak out about their mental health.
  • Connecting. We’re a social bunch here at Dialect. Team lunches/dinners, film club, book club, summer and Christmas parties are just a few of the things we enjoy as a team.
  • Growth. We encourage continuous professional development and exploration. We run lunch and learn sessions, quarterly performance reviews and have dedicated time each week for staff to focus on their professional development.
