We believe in attracting great people from diverse backgrounds, with distinctive personal experiences and outlooks. We never compromise on finding the best person for every role, ensuring we maintain our exceptional standards – or elevate them – with every hire.
At Vitality, we’re committed to diversity and inclusion, because it’s good for our employees, for our business and for society.
We want all our great people to bring all of themselves to work, so that they can liberate the best in themselves. We know that diversity fosters innovation, which is part of our DNA and inclusive diversity promotes social cohesion, which benefits society.
When you become part of the team at Vitality, you’ll experience working in an environment that supports development, encourages creativity and innovation, and always delivers the best in performance.
Hear about our recent new starter’s experience…
“I am loving the Vitality atmosphere and people, I feel very comfortable that for the first time in my working life, this might be the right place for me to progress with my career and be happy at my workplace, which is something not easy to find. I have felt welcomed and included since day one and the more I know the company and the people around, the more I love it.
My onboarding experience was very good and smooth. I applied through a third party recruiter and the whole process was very straight forward, after a couple of formal and informal interviews I was offered the role!”
Rosmery – Associate Technical Delivery Manager
