Life at RVU

At RVU we believe that 'everything is written in pencil'.

We've embraced a quick thinking, assumption-challenging culture and combined it with our unique industry expertise and experience. The result? An exciting place to work, where we challenge ourselves daily and adapt to change quickly. We have fun and take our work seriously, but not ourselves.

Being great people to work with

Embracing our differences, we strive to create an inclusive environment where we are able to bring our best selves to work. We hold ourselves and our teammates accountable. We coach others and invest in strong performers and culture carriers. We have fun and we take our work seriously, but not ourselves.

Everything is written in pencil

Adaptability is our secret weapon. The bigger we get the smaller we act, so we constantly change the way we organise our work. Flat, small teams allow us to move quickly when we can and should. We value fresh perspective and constantly challenge our own assumptions.

Winning the right way

We stand up for what’s right. We provide outstanding experiences for our employees, customers, and partners. We want to invest in the communities we operate in and use our expertise to improve the world around us.

Leaving the wood pile higher than you found it

Our true purpose is to do all we can to positively change the trajectory of the people and communities that we touch. As long as we are clear and focused on this, our journey and our impact will be like no other.

Making every second count

We capitalise on momentum. We know that the world is changing quickly and we act deliberately and urgently, like we're running out of time. We value constant innovation and have a bias to action in order to get important things done.

We can be the change we wish to see in the world

We believe that action expresses priorities, and we have a responsibility as individuals and as an organisation to interrupt injustice and indifference whenever we see it. By holding ourselves accountable to being open and inclusive teammates, community members, and leaders inside the walls of RV, we will set an example for others in the world to follow.

Getting better every day

Embracing a growth mindset and focusing on making our teams better every day. We value coach-ability, passion and an intrinsic drive to improve. We challenge people to go outside of their comfort zones and promote the spirit of debate.

Employee Resource Groups

Women at RVU 

We work to build an inclusive community for the women in our workplace aligned with the RVU beliefs. We host various events throughout the year to offer development, resources, networking and mentoring opportunities for anyone who might be interested.

RVbU

We work to ensure a welcoming and educational space for LGBTQIA+ employees and allies, raising awareness of important issues and celebrating moments that matter to our community, including organising external speakers and hosting a Pride podcast to shine a light on the stories and experiences of LGBTQIA+ employees.

More Than

We’re focused on inspiring employees of all abilities to achieve their full potential.  This is delivered by advancing awareness of long term health conditions, including visible and non-visible disabilities, providing practical support to all employees and providing feedback to RVU on how we can be a more inclusive place to work.

BAME

We exist to represent, and provide a confidential safe space for individuals to share and support one another, feed back, educate, and escalate issues to empower our colleagues
